Back to Elvis Main Page

The KING Makes a Triumphant Return to Sierra Madre Elvis (Harry Shahoian) performed at the Concert in the Park sponsored by the Rotary Club of Sierra Madre on Sunday.  Harry announced during the show that the following night, he would be performing for the first time in the "Legends of Rock and Roll," one of the most acclaimed shows in Las Vegas.  A crowd estimated at more than 1,000 people enthusiastically greeted Harry and his band. Lawn chairs and blankets were set up to save locations as early as 7:30 am by Sierra Madreans who anticipated a large crowd for the show. The crowd cheered and danced as Harry reenacted many of the hits made famous by the King, who passed away 27 years ago of heart failure. Some of the most enthusiastic in the audience were little children who were born more than two decades after Elvis' death.  Click on a picture below to see it larger.

It's always a party in the Park when Harry comes back

I got to the concert a little late, there were lots of kids on stage when I arrived

Kids leave the stage

and Elvis takes it

Harry's probably going to hate this shot, but hey, the sneer is part of the act

The hazards of taking action shots, sometimes hands and mikes get in the way

Lots of kids born decades after Elvis' death had some of the best seats

Let's not forget Rotary sponsored the concert, at considerable cost.  Elvis ain't cheap.

Rotary's tri-tip sandwiches were on sale, too

Crowd shot.  The place was packed
