"Heartbreak Hotel" was only the beginning!
Elvis came to Albuquerque in 1956, just before "Heartbreak Hotel" hit No. 1 on the charts. He played a show at the Armory and Elvis stayed at theBottger Mansion of Old Town Bed and Breakfast in Historic Old Town.
On Friday, April 5th, there will be an Elvis karaoke concert on the Plaza from 5 to 8 p.m., where the public will be welcomed to step up to the microphone! You can dress like the King, wear 50's-style apparel, or just come as yourself. Before the night is over, the best Elvis karaoke performer will be crowned.
Saturday, April 6th, there will be a variety of Elvis activities kicked off with an Elvis trivia contest at 10 a.m. in the Gazebo.
Stay tuned for more information about the Elvis celebration as it becomes available.
This event is presented in partnership with the Old Town Merchants Association and the Bottger Mansion of Old Town.
