The Press conference takes place in the Sports Arena Interview room, April 5th around 6.00pm.
Elvis sits on a table (and ignores the prepared chair for him) He wears a black velvet shirt, black suit with white shoes and socks. George Klein can be seen far left of the image.
Ben Weisman went to the saturday evening 8.00pm performance : Elvis gave a concert in Philadelphia and I went to see it I just watched the crowd,the place was mobbed, girls with their feet dangling down from the balconies-everybody going crazy. I sat there and said 'Look at this! This is a phenomenon! As a matter of fact while I was sitting there, a tomato went hurling through the air-Elvis was on stage, and it hit and broke the strap on his guitar. He was furious! He stopped his show and said 'Hey,wait a minute! If somebody's got a problem up there, why don't you just come down here and we'll work it out'. Elvis was going to take the guy on, but whoever threw it, would't come down from the balcony. He sure got bood.
The Sunday Bulletin reported: 'Elvis' face darkened into a frown, but he managed to finish his song 'All Shook Up', then with his eyes flashing, he pointed to Scotty Moore and addressed the crowd. He got egg on his guitar, Whoever threw that will never make the Yankees. After a moment's pause, which did not cool his ire, the singer again faced the crowd 'Most of you people came here to enjoy the show, the guy who threw the egg will never make it. I mean it, jack, we're just trying to put on a nice show'. The guilty were William Quinn, 20 New York who said 'We don't like Elvis, but we went to see what he is like'. William B Oates, 21 of Brooklyn, James Stark, 20 of Greenport, New York and John Eidt, 20 of New York City, who spent the night in jail'.
Jimmy Velvet : Elvis' show was unbelievable, I had never seen anything like it, I mean Jacksonville wasn't anything like this. There were so many kids there climbing over each other it was amazing. The screaming you never heard anything, the screaming never stopped, but he didn't have to hear very much, he felt it.
I remember it well, before I left for the concert, everybody at the base was kidding me ...
'No you're not going to go over there,you're not going to get in'.
I went back with some fresh pictures, and everybody went crazy over them, It was fun.
George Klein : When we got home, Gladys said, 'Elvis,what happened in Philadelphia? What happened in Cleveland, What happened in Chicago? Elvis said,'Mama, I can't remember anything, it's all a blur, all these places look alike to me, George knows everything about every show in every city, ask him'
The Elvis Presley Game was manufactured under license from Elvis Presley Enterprises by 'Teen-Age Games Inc. based in West Springfield Massachusetts.It looks like an executive from the games company has travelled the relatively short journey to present Elvis with the new 1957 release.
