Can you imagine what an Elvis ticket would go for these days? I've paid $200-$300 for tickets to concerts (for my wife) for bands that couldn't open for Elvis on their best day.

Besides not being an Elvis fan back then,David.What was the real reason you didn't go? One would say,what! were you crazy for missing an Elvis Presley concert.Of course,I'm shaking my head at that one.

Are you kidding? Elvis was charging $10 for the Houston Livestock show & tom Jones tickets were $25 at t he Colisuem in Corpus Christi! Elvis knew how to treat his fans!

And it looks like.. the king was reasonably close with / to the people. Right?

And yeah I agree... the most silly acts cost more than anything Elvis would have asked, that's correct.

I believe if there was an afternoon show on this date, it's the one my friend went to.
She said it was during the day they saw him.
