This was a very memorial day for Elvis and the group. Elvis concluded the engagement by arriving on stage for his final show on Lamar’s back with a toy monkey attached to his neck.

Then he joked around with the crowd, tossing back and forth on a bed (provided by Sonny on stage), while singing What Now My Love. He even mentioned that he was treated poorly by the Hotel. At the end of the show he tried to make up for this by stating: ” I know we kid a lot and have fun and everything, but we really love to sing, play music and entertain people. As long as I can do that, I’ll be a happy old sonofabitch.”

The Colonel was not pleased at all, by Elvis’ behaviour and they even got into a public shouting in the dressing room with a lot of members of the group present at that time. Later that night Elvis fired the Colonel, but the Colonel had already quitted himself. He wanted all the money Elvis owed him and then he moved to his suite to draw up the bill.

1956

Elvis performed at the Municipal Auditorium Arena, Kansas City, Missouri. However, there was a big riot and DJ’s drums and Bill’s bass were smashed, while DJ himself was thrown into the orchestra pit.

Elvis flew to the next gig with Gene Smith and Tom Diskin while the band drove again.

Elvis Presley Letters from Omaha in 1956 – Elvis History Blog

Marjorie Howe’s concert review, published in theJournal on May 24, 1956. The headline read, “Teenagers Like Presley’s Antics—But Others Do Not!” Miss Howe clearly was in the latter group. “His performance was the most disgusting exhibition this reporter has ever seen,” she declared. “Elvis Presley is the male counterpart of a hoochee-koochee dancer in a burlesque show. The writhing goes on while Presley is singing Blue Suede Shoes or Hound Dog, but his frenzied singing and guitar strumming are only incidental to the act. In fact, the singing can barely be heard above the crowd noise for every paroxysm brings a fresh outbreak of shrieks from the audience.”

Howe took time off from her criticism of Elvis’s act to censure the singer’s appearance. “He has a sulkey look and his infrequent smile is almost surly,” she observed. She added (Elvis fans, take a deep breath now), “He wears long sideburns and is beginning to get fat.”

WHAT’S SECRET?

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.

“That’ll Be the Day” by Buddy Holly And The Crickets is released. The Nashville rendition of this song, done by Buddy Holly and the Three Tunes in July 1956 and released on the Decca label, failed to chart. This new version, recorded in February 1957 at Norman Petty’s studio in Clovis, New Mexico went to #1. The song would reach #1 in the UK and #3 in the US and was later ranked at #39 on Rolling Stone’s list of The 500 Greatest Songs Of All Time. In 2005, the recording was placed in the National Recording Registry, a list of sound recordings that “are culturally, historically, or aesthetically important, and/or inform or reflect life in the United States.” It was also the first song to be recorded by The Quarrymen, the skiffle group that subsequently became The Beatles.

At Norman Petty’s studio in Clovis, New Mexico, At Norman Petty’s studio in Clovis, New Mexico, Buddy Holly and the Crickets recorded “Not Fade Away” and “Everyday.” recorded “Not Fade Away” and “Everyday.”

Toronto radio station CHUM went to a Top 40 format and published its first hit record chart 50 years ago today, in 1957. The No. 1 song was Elvis Presley’s All Shook Up. The 1,500th issue of the chart made its appearance on March 14, 1986, making it the oldest surviving radio station chart in North America. The chart was discontinued later in 1986 when CHUM dropped its Top 40 format.

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.
