    Description

    Elvis Presley Houston Livestock Show at the Astrodome Concert Poster (1970). A brightly-colored 14" x 22" cardboard poster showing the scheduled musical entertainment for the "World's Largest & Wildest Rodeo" February 28 - March 8, 1970. The lead act (of course) is Elvis who, in his first live performances outside Las Vegas since 1961, did six shows over three days with a total draw of 207,494 people. Also pictured and detailed are: Charley Pride (March 2-4), Bobby Goldsboro (March 5), and Buck Owens & Roy Clark (March 6-8). Quite a line-up. Very Good condition.

    Before this series of performances, Elvis held a press conference in Houston. When asked why he chose to perform at this event, he replied: "Well, they asked me to do it and I was anxious to do some live appearances, you know. It had been a long time since I'd been on stage in front of anybody live and I was anxious to do some live appearances and I thought it would be a good opportunity to get in front of the people."
