Elvis Birthday Schedule
There are few performers whose name is synonymous with an entire genre of music, and even
fewer for whom you only need to mention their first name. Perhaps there is only one... Elvis. The King. Elvis Presley opened
up rock and roll to millions of Americans who had never heard of or been interested in such a thing and because of that he
still reigns today as one of the most beloved figures in all of popular music. He is the ultimate rock and roll icon and his
birthday is still celebrated by millions of fans each year.
One such celebration will take place on January 12, 2014
at State Theatre - The Playhouse Square Center in Cleveland, Ohio. What better place to celebrate the birth of the King of
Rock and Roll than in Cleveland which is also home to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. This will be an evening of celebrating
all of Elvis' best songs from his earliest hip shaking singles to his last crooners. This is definitely one vent that Elvis
fans of all ages have had circled on their calendars for months so don't miss out!

On January 8, 1935 Elvis Aaron Presley was born in Tupelo, Mississippi and it was not until he was thirteen
that he and his family moved to Memphis, Tennessee. With the help of Colonel Tom Parker, Elvis released his first single Heartbreak
Hotel which became a number one hit instantly and earned him several television appearances which would eventually prove to
His film career began in 1956 when he starred in the movie Love Me Tender. However, two years later
he was drafted into the Army and his musical and film career were put on hold for two years. The first television appearances
for Elvis Presley were on Stage Show on CBS on which he was booked for six shows. During the years of 1960 to 1967, after
returning from the army, Elvis Presley chose to focus on his movie career rather than his music, but made a triumphant return
to music in 1968. Elvis was pronounced dead at 3:30 PM on August 16, 1977 after being found dead on his bathroom floor on
the day on which he was scheduled to fly out of Memphis heading out on another tour.
