Few people know that Elvis Presley spent some time in Albuquerque, and even performed at the old Armory on April 12th, 1956! Elvis had just released his first single, “Heartbreak Hotel,” which was storming up Billboard’s Top 100. He also stayed at the Bottger Hotel in Historic Old Town!

Join us for a celebration of Elvis and his music at the Old Town Gazebo. Sign up for karaoke and sing along to your favorite tunes performed live by local band The Bar Stars!
