"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 the Bottger Mansion of Old Town Bed and Breakfast in Historic Old Town.
On 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!
This event is presented in partnership with the Historic Old Town Business Partnership and the City of Albuquerque Cultural Services Department.
