7 days a week, workers try to catch up with the renovation schedule of the new Overton Park Shell. It was here, at this historic location near Poplar Avenue, where Elvis made his live debut on July 30th, 1954, singing That�s All Right Mama (in a show headlined by Slim Whitman). As you can see on the picture, the concrete (video) walls are already in place. It�s expected that the actual video screens will be added on, in less than two months time. The back of the concrete walls, will feature portraits of Memphis�s musical heroes. Much to our delight, Elvis was the first performer to get his portrait.
