    Description

    Carl Perkins City Auditorium Concert Poster (1956). Very Rare. Window card printed on card stock for a show in Big Spring, Texas dated Sat. March 24. The poster lists the line-up of acts with their respective record labels: "Carl Perkins, Sun Records, "Blue Suede Shoes" Jimmy and Johnny, Decca Records; Belew Twins, Coral Records; Helen Hall, Coral Records. Measures 14" x 22". In Near Mint Minus condition, with some rubbing to corners and edges.

    Though this important poster advertises the show for March 24, it actually took place on March 10. The poster had already been printed when Carl Perkins was invited to appear on the Perry Como Show on the 24th, no doubt due to the chart success of "Blue Suede Shoes". Sadly, on March 21 Perkins was involved in a serious car accident on his way to taping the Perry Como Show which delayed his appearance until May 26, by which time the hit single had sold 1.2 million copies.
