    Cool The start of the riot at Empire Stadium

    I hope you like this pic !

    *-I don't know if this is completly accurate???-

    August 31 Elvis Presley performed one song at a packed Empire Stadium, left the stage when fans begin to battle with police. He returned to sing four more songs, none of which could be heard over the screaming. The next day, Presley's manager, Colonel Tom Parker, happily read aloud to the media a local newspaper account of the riot.

    Aww, that was a fun article and picture Novis. Thanks for posting.

    I wonder how Elvis felt with that hoard of fans coming at him?

    What a great story! Would have loved to have had photos to accompany this, I picture a crowd like at the Tupelo concert! Being Canada - correct?- were the officers Canadidan Mounties, I wonder?


    Just pretend, I'm holding you, and whispering things soft and low.
    And think of me, how it's gonna be and just pretend I didn't go

    What a tease you are! Just got your PM, thanks again. These are great threads of yours. Keep them coming!

    Love the photo of Elvis, biting his lip. He appears to be just a little kid who's amazed this is all happening to him.
