Elvis’ performances at Madison Square Garden in New York City in June of 1972 were some of the most significant considering the importance of the venue, the success of the concerts and his first live performance in New York since the 1950s. Meant to be a three-day series, a fourth day was added when his first three shows sold out immediately, a first in Madison Square Garden history. The day of the first concert, on June 9, 1972, Elvis conducted a press conference during which he was jovial with the reporters by starting the interview with the comment “First of all, I plead innocent of all charges!” He continued to answer questions about why it took so long to play in New York City, explaining that they simply waited their turn to reserve the space at Madison Square Garden. He discussed his hair, his image, his audiences, his service, and much more. Offered are four (4) color images of Elvis from that well-known press conference. Each period color print is marked on the reverse “This paper manufactured by Kodak” and measures 10 by 8 inches (25.4 x 20.32 cm). The group is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.



The photographs are in excellent condition with minor blemishes within each print that do not impact the great visual appeal. Minor edge discoloration along the backsides.
