The above photos were taken by George Kalinsky who has been the official 
Garden photographer for more than 40 years. He came across the never- 
before-seen photos while looking for images for a publicity campaign
“Great Moments in New York.”


Elvis Presley gave his very first concerts at Madison Square Garden New York
City during the weekend of
June 9 through June 11, 1972. He had performed on
television in the 1950s and recorded at studios in the city, but he had never
performed in a concert venue before a paying audience. Four shows in total
were scheduled: three for the evenings of Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, with
a matinee performance on Saturday afternoon as well. The album ELVIS-
AN AFTERNOON IN THE GARDEN features the entirety of Elvis’ afternoon
performance on June 10.
