Using exclusive access to the files of the Elvis Presley estate. The King on the Road presents a unique insider’s view of Elvis’ live performances. It covers his earliest gigs around the rural South, when almost singlehanded he was creating what became known as rock’n’roll, all the way up to his record-breaking spectaculars in Las Vegas.
This remarkable collection of never-before-published photos, posters, news reports, and even ticket stubs adds up to a blow-by-blow acount of the entire performing career of the King. Interviews with musicians and entourage, rare facsimiles of hand-written set lists, and the exclusive complete listing of every live date that Elvis Presley ever performed accompany the illustrations to create the definitive onstage (and backstage) record of the most dynamic entertainer in the history of rock’n’roll.
