Question
I have been looking at purchasing a piece of Elvis memorabilia which supposedly comes from a performance on 2nd February 1977 at Johnson City TN. This item was apparently originally obtained by Al Dviron. I can't find a concert or performance listed by Elvis for this date only one on the 19th. Did Elvis perform there on that date. Many thanks.

Answer
Hello Joanne,

I can tell you with all certainty that Elvis' Johnson City, TN show in 1977 occurred on February 19, not February 2. Elvis' first show that month wasn't until the 12th. Please exercise extreme caution when purchasing Elvis memorabilia; get as much authentication as possible.

Cheers,
Brandon

Expertise

I can answer practically anything regarding Elvis' life, music, concerts, and films. Sorry - I cannot answer questions about worth of collectibles (including music).

Experience

I have read extensively about Elvis' life for over 20 years and own dozens of books regarding his life, concert tours, and recording career. I also finished 2nd in an Elvis trivia contest (by one point) held across the street from Graceland in 2002. I have personally spoken with Scotty Moore, Millie Kirkham, his Commanding Officer from the Army, and one of his cooks.
