FIRST-EVER CONCERT ON THIS DAY IN 1972

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.
