Description


1975 New Year’s Eve concert poster in Pontiac, Michigan, 13.5 x 21.5. Pontiac’s Silverdome was filled with more than 60,000 fans on this New Year’s Eve, setting an attendace record for an Elvis Presley concert. The event was not without a few hiccups. Besides flubbing the words to ‘Auld Lang Syne’ and a previously unrehearsed ‘My Way,’ The King split his pants during ‘Polk Salad Annie,’ leaving the stage to change into another of his ornate jumpsuits. On the other hand, fans were treated to dynamic renditions of ‘Heartbreak Hotel,’ ‘One Night,’ ‘Trying to Get to You,’ and ‘How Great Thou Art’ during the 85-minute concert. The historic affair was a far cry from the last time Elvis had performed on New Year’s Eve, an appearance on the Louisiana Hayride in Shreveport, LA. in 1955. To date, only four of these posters are known to exist. Matted and framed to an overall size of 21 x 29. Scattered golding and silvering to image and text, otherwise fine condition. Accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from Graceland and a full unused ticket from the concert.
