VOR 65 JAHREN GAB ELVIS SEIN LETZTES KONZERT IM AUSLAND
- Sep 07, 2022
In view of Elvis Presley's worldwide popularity, the fact that he gave only five concerts outside the USA remains curious to this day. Two each in Toronto and Ottawa and one in Vancouver. This took place on August 31, 1957 in the Empire Stadium in front of about 20,000 fans (the audience figures vary in the reputable sources. Some speak of 16,000.) Because of the hysterical girls, the show was stopped early. In the local newspaper "Vancouver Province" the performance was scandalized as "subsidized sex". There is said to have been another spontaneous performance in Paris during his leave from military service. However, this is not considered official.
