The original concert poster for Elvis' performance at Memphis' Ellis Auditorium on February 6, 1955. Despite Elvis' local popularity and rising fame on the Louisiana Hayride, Elvis was billed on the poster below more established performers like Faron Young, Ferlin Husky and Martha Carson, whose song "Satisfied," was one of Elvis' favorites.
On May 15,1956 Elvis played a show at the Ellis Auditorium in Memphis to a full house. They had to open up both the North Hall and the South Hall to accommodate all 7.000 fans. Elvis, clad in a violently green jacket, did a great show singing such hit songs as "Heartbreak Hotel," "Long Tall Sally," "Blue Suede Shoes," "I Was The One" and "Only You," during which he turned toward the dressing rooms instead of to his audience. Many a teenage girl wondered if he sang the song for Carolyn Joseph from Columbia, Mo., with whom he was later seen holding hands.
