Elvis Presley Concert 1957 – Elvis shocked his audience when in a burst of high spirits he rolled around on the stage floor with the stuffed animal in a highly uninhibited and provocative manner during a fast and furious rendition of “‘Hound Dog” at the inaugural concert of his 1957 California Concert Tour. The LA Deputy Police Chief ordered the Vice Squad to instruct Elvis to eliminate any ‘sexy overtones’ from his performances or risk obscenity charges. Even Colonel Parker took him to task.
The hound is an original RCA Nipper Dog from the California Concert Tour 1957. It was given to Elvis Presley by RCA on the release of his huge hit ‘Hound Dog¹. Elvis kept the dog at Graceland for many years before he gave it as a gift to his great friend, Paul Lickter, rock concert promoter and manager of the 60s groups The Soul Survivors and The Vanilla Fudge. Rebecca, bought it for £3,000 in 1997. Elvis Pets Rebecca Hooper, Nipper’s owner, is available for interviews. Rebecca is an ardent Elvis fan and as a sign of her undying commitment has had a picture of Elvis tattooed on her arm. 1957 The Principal warned all female students at the Wichita Falls High School that the school would tolerate Elvis music, the wearing of blue jeans or ducktail hairdos… My, my, my how times have changed???
