Elvis, What Happened? - Elvis In The ‘70s: An Overview

seventies records concerts york

It is amazing to think that Elvis shared the 1970s music scene with David Bowie's Ziggy Stardust, Bob Marley's popularization of reggae music, rock supergroups such as Led Zeppelin, and, toward the end of his career, even with the Ramones, the New York Dolls, and the Sex Pistols. Between 1969 and 1977, Elvis performed 1,126 concerts, in addition to performing in Las Vegas for eight weeks each year. Elvis performed in Las Vegas in 1970 and broke all attendance records for concerts at the International Hotel. Elvis toured America throughout the seventies, breaking box-office records wherever he appeared, including a sold-out show at New York's Madison Square Garden in 1972. Of the fourteen Grammy Award nominations that Elvis received during his career, he won four; three of them were awarded to him during the seventies.
