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."

    The movie quite literally changed my life. I have included a pic of me in Sly's Rocky 3 Cashmere overcoat, would much appreciate if it is possible for you to forward this email to Sly to let him know the overcoat is in good hands, and will be well taken care of, (as will be the Rambo knife forging tools, the other lot I won!) Wish you very happy holidays and a great 2016!
