Lot 142: 1973 Elvis Presley New York Nassau Coliseum Concert Poster Emanating from Graceland
29 October 2016
Memphis, TN, USALive Auction
Elvis performed four shows during three days at the Nassau County Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Uniondale, New York (Long Island), on June 22 through 24, 1973. The shows during this period opened to the theme from 2001: A Space Odyssey and it was about halfway through one of these shows that so many fans were tossing undergarments on stage that Elvis made the jovial remark, "There's going to be a lot of naked people out there soon!" Part of the marketing and promotion for these popular summer tours, these posters were created to alert the media and fans of upcoming concert dates and venues. This poster, featuring "Four Big Shows!" and four images of Elvis, offers tickets ranging in price from $5.00 to $10.00 and is framed with two black-and-white photo reproductions of Elvis and a plaque describing the poster. These posters were offered for sale to members of the Elvis Presley Enterprises affinity club, The Official Elvis Collectors Club, which was a precursor to the current Graceland Insiders fan group. The plaque on the framed display claims this copy was in Elvis' office, but there is nothing supporting that claim. This example is presented in a framed display measuring 26 by 39 inches (66.04 x 99.06 cm). The poster, measuring approximately 14 by 11 inches (35.56 x 27.94 cm), emanates from the Graceland Archives auction in 1999 and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.
Condition Report: The poster is in excellent condition overall with only three minor horizontal crease marks.
