ELVIS PRESLEY stub from May 25th, 1956!! At the Fox Theatre, Detroit, Michigan. Although Elvis toured enormously early on from 1954 to 1955 almost no stubs remain. Very few had his name on it as almost all the venues where he played were outdoor fairs with general admission and no real stub.So, NO STUBS from 1954 and almost NONE from 1955. Stubs from 1956 are a little more common, but still EXTREMELY scarce for some of the same reasons. Although, by then at least he was headlining at local concert venues.
Still, e ven though his attendance was strong, the concert crowds and venues were very small back then and held only a few thousand or less. So there were few tickets to begin with. Rock and roll was a very new thing, and so were live pop concerts. Then starting November 1956 he started to tour less and only toured in early 1957 before stopping altogether until the 70's (except for a few special engagements).So any stub from the 50's is an extremely treasured collectible. Of course there may be more out there stashed away, and others that haven't surfaced yet, but some will be lost and many just don't enter the marketplace. One thing is guaranteed, demand is growing strong for these stubs, so they will only get harder and harder to find and more expensive. The stub is very firm and solid but has 2 holes from one staple, a little tape on the right end and a few small very light creases.
