Elvis Presley made entertainment history by performing 4 sold-out shows at New York’s Madison Square Garden. George Harrison, John Lennon, David Bowie, Bob Dylan and Art Garfunkel were among music stars that attended the shows. The shows were recorded and became the album ‘Elvis as recorded at Madison Square Garden’ and eventually “An Afternoon in the Garden” and “Prince from Another Planet”.

Elvis gave a press conference at 4.00 p.m. at the Hilton. Asked about his image as a shy, humble country boy, Elvis responded: ” I don’t know what makes them say that”, and stood up to reveal the International Hotel gold belt under his jacket, with his father proudly beaming beside him.

At the MSG Press Conference, Elvis was asked a number of questions, as funny as the Gold Belt he won as an Attendance recorder setter in Vegas; his resistance to offering a political commentary and his supporting other celebs making different decisions was more riveting
