Viva Las Vegas

By Alyssa Long

Elvis fans are very unique in that they like to soak up every detail and learn as much as they can about Elvis Presley.

This week, I’ve talked at length about Elvis and his time in Memphis. Well, there was another city that made a big impact on Elvis and where he can still be found today… Las Vegas. Last night, there was an Elvis in Vegas Tribute Concert featuring the Terry Mike Jeffrey Band, and it got me thinking about the time Elvis spent in Las Vegas.

Here’s are some interesting, numerical facts about Elvis and Las Vegas:

1956 - The year Elvis first performed in Las Vegas. He was actually received poorly by the conservative, middle-aged audience that was there at the time.

1964 - The year "Viva Las Vegas," Elvis’ 15th film, was released.

8 - The length, in minutes, of Elvis and Priscilla’s wedding which took place at The Aladdin (present day Planet Hollywood) on May 1, 1967.

32 - The age Elvis was when he married Priscilla.

52 - The number of shows Elvis was scheduled to perform at the brand new International Hotel in 1969.

2200 - The number of audience members in his first show in Las Vegas after making his comeback. They gave him a standing ovation before he even began to sing.

5 - The length, in years, of the contract Elvis eventually had with the International Hotel to perform each February and August.

30 - The floor the penthouse was on that Elvis stayed in at The International Hotel.

5000 - Number of square feet that the penthouse was.

600+ - The number of consecutive sold out shows in Las Vegas.

Today, there are shows in Las Vegas that pay tribute to Elvis Presley. He is still very much alive in Las Vegas as he is with all of us here visiting Graceland for Elvis Week.
