Along with his historic “Aloha in Hawaii” concert, Elvis’ performances at Madison Square Garden in New York City in June of 1972 are some of the most significant considering the importance of the venue, the success of the concerts and it being 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. The June 11, 1972 Elvis performance at Madison Square Garden in New York was one of the shows added when the first three sold out immediately, a first in Madison Square Garden history, which prompted the New York Times to describe the Elvis phenomenon as “Like a Prince from Another Planet.” Offered is a ticket stub, tour photo album full of color and black-and-white images of Elvis in a variety of his famous jumpsuits on each page and a smaller, heavier-stock paper tour poster that measures 14 by 11 inches (35.56 x 27.94 cm) from this historic show. Elvis wore the Adonis jumpsuit for this performance on the 11th as over 20,000 fans screamed when Elvis began singing. The lucky fan that witnessed this extraordinary concert was sitting in Mezzanine Section 412, Row G Seat 14 that afternoon at 2:30 pm and paid only $5.00 for the chance to see this memorable show. The blue ticket stub, containing the warning on the reverse “There will be no recording, televising, or motion picture filming of the Elvis Presley Show unless agreed by prior contractual commitment of the show manager,” measures 2 1/4 by 1 3/4 inches (5.71 x 4.44 cm). The photo album measures 10 3/4 by 8 1/2 inches (27.30 x 21.59 cm) and the grouping is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.



The ticket stub is in excellent condition with a small area of discoloration to one corner and edge wear at the center tear with a small ink mark. The small poster and photo folio are in overall excellent condition.
