This oversized RCA promotional piece is befitting the massive popularity of the King himself. The round cardboard disc measures 36 inches (91.44 cm) in diameter and is styled like a record, with a black background and red and blue print. One side states “ELVIS NOW / Hear Elvis on RCA Records & Tapes” with the Hilton logo flanking the sides; the other side’s center section reads “WELCOMES YOU.” Displays such as this were used during the 1970s Summer Festival Concert Series at the Las Vegas Hilton and were intended to hang from the ceiling, so both sides contained promotional printing. Elvis dominated the Las Vegas concert scene in the 1970s, after relaunching his performing career with his first engagement at the then-Las Vegas International Hotel in 1969. Those shows set a record for both attendance and gross tickets sales and paved the way for the Colonel to negotiate a 5-year deal for engagements at the hotel. This eye-popping display piece is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.



The hanger presents with several small distresses, including a small hole near the “NOW” and a small chip at the bottom edge. Other than some other scuffing, the colors are bright with good contrast. Excellent condition.
