New Graceland Blog - Elvis' Touring in 1956

The music industry in 2016 is very different from the music industry in 1956, but one thing is still true: Touring is practically a must if you want to find new fans.

Fans heard his music on the radio and watched his national television appearances, but Elvis also gained thousands of new fans by doing quite a bit of touring in 1956.

This week's Graceland Blog focuses on Elvis' busy touring schedule in 1956. See photos, click through a map of the cities Elvis played, learn about Elvis' touring adventures and much more.
