The historic event held at Russwood Park on July 4, 1956, was not only one of Elvis’ longest concerts to date, but he lived up to his promise to the audience that evening when he said, “You know those people in New York are not going to change me none. I’m gonna show you what the real Elvis is like tonight.” And he certainly did when he even gave away his diamond pinky ring as a door prize. The concert was the first after Elvis’ appearance on The Steve Allen Show, during which Elvis serenaded a basset hound named Sherman with his famous tune “Hound Dog.” The show at Memphis’ Russwood Park was hosted by Variety Club’s Home for Convalescent Children, and tickets were offered by suggested donation of $2.75 or more for this ringside seat. Even Elvis donated his diamond pinky ring as a door prize during the performance. The offered ticket stub, number 1462, measures approximately 2 by 4 inches (5.08 x 10.16 cm) and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.



The ticket has mild age toning and two tape stains on the reverse and Elvis Presley's name has been underlined in ink. Excellent condition.
