Elvis Presley arrived in Miami on August 3rd, 1956 and performed at the Olympia, now Gusman Center for the Performing Arts. Tickets were $1.50. Presley played seven sold-out performances over two days. During one of the performances fans had torn his pants to shreds.
1956 was a breakthrough year for Elvis. He had his first session with RCA, recording Heartbreak Hotel, Blue Suede Shoes and Hound Dog. He also began shooting his first movie, “Love Me Tender”.
This collection of photos captures the iconic performer live as well as in more candid moments, including posing with his new car: a Continental Mark II. Parked in Miami, Elvis’ lavender Lincoln was covered with love notes written in lipstick by fans. He turned it in for a new car, which was valued at $10,000.00 and provided a nice addition to his three remaining Cadillacs at home in Memphis.
