Elvis Presley’s Rise
Show Biz Phenomenon

What’s the magic formula that Elvis Presley has discovered? And who are his fans?
As far as the formula goes, few have figured it out. People just latch on to something that’s new, and Presley certainly is new and different.
But one thing about his audience–for the first time in the history of the recording industry, one record leads all possible fields–popular, hillbilly and rhythm – and – blues. That record is Presley’s “Heartbreak Hotel.” and it has led the three categories not once, but for two straight weeks.
Presley will appear at the University of Dayton fieldhouse for two shows today at 2 p. m. and 8 p. m., rated the hottest show business attraction in the history of the music business. He now commands a fee of $10,000 an appearance.
With him Sunday will be several acts of vaudeville, including the Jordanaires of the Eddy Arnold TV show. Guest MC’s will be Al Morris of WAVI, for the 2 p. m. show, and Gene Barry of WING at night.
General admission tickets will go on sale an hour before each show.

Polly Thomas, a staff writer for the Journal Herald in Dayton, Ohio, who took her daughter, with Elvis above, to the show:

“He took them ecstatically through all conceivable contortions of voice and body. Beyond all precedence, he worked tirelessly, as though he were offering himself to some strange medium, understood only by those who feel beyond all feeling.

The obvious gyrations, to the unartistic eye (most of all, mine) may have appeared ribald. But in all fairness, I must admit that there is an explanatory background that lifts them into the field of art.

Elvis was born in Tupelo, Miss., and spent his childhood days in the deep south. As a child he heard the plaintive chants and blues and saw potential shoe-shine boys ‘jig’ until they were exhausted. He captured the beat of the south and began to take part in amateur productions. Performing was as natural as breathing.

That primitive almost savage expression may be, in itself, a part of the hypnotic fascination. Then, too, the young southerner with straight, slicked-back hair and long sideburns, is dedicated to his audience. He sets his course and steers it straight, completely oblivious and uninhibited.

Virgin Records releases the anti-establishment anthem “God Save The Queen” by The Sex Pistols. UK sales will reach over 150,000 in the first five days, despite the fact that major retailers refuse to sell the record and the BBC bans it from air-play. Against all odds, the single still reached #2 on the UK singles chart. It sold 200,000 copies in one week and peaked at No.2 on the UK charts behind Rod Stewart’s ‘I Don’t Want to Talk About It’. There have been persistent rumours, (never confirmed or denied), that it was actually the biggest-selling single in the UK at the time, and the British Phonographic Industry conspired to keep it off the No.1 slot.

At the Nashville club in London, Declan McManus made his stage debut as Elvis Costello.
