Elvis... The Greatest Madison Square Garden show of all time?
The Greatest Madison Square Garden show of all time?
In 1968, the latest incarnation of Madison Square Garden opened in the heart of NYC.
By the 1970s, the arena was the premier showcase for music's biggest stars.
With the '00s ending and MSG's renovation scheduled to begin in 2010, we have four decades of classic concerts and one question: What's The Garden's greatest show? Each week in November, MSG will give you a chance to vote on shows from each different decade, starting with the 70’s.
Elvis Presley finally made his Madison Square Garden debut in 1972, booking three evening concerts and one afternoon matinee - four instant sell-outs. The King "left the building" for good the night of June 11, his final performance at the arena.
