"Elvis" is back in the building tonight

GREENVILLE — A tribute concert is scheduled in Greenville tonight in honor of the late Elvis Presley.

Presley appeared at Greenville Municipal Auditorium (GMA) in October 1955. The facility will play host to “Elvis Returns! A Tribute to Elvis with Kraig Parker".

The concert is presented in partnership with the United Way of Hunt County with a percentage of proceeds to benefit the local non-profit, as well as to benefit the restoration of the auditorium.

Doors to the auditorium will open at 6 p.m. and tickets at $15 and $35 each are still available through the auditorium’s web site at www.showtimeatthegma.com.

Elvis performed at the GMA on October 5, 1955, as part of the famous “Louisiana Hayride.”

The performance is being produced by Charles Stone, who produced all of Presley's shows in the 1970s.
