Red, Hot & Blue Elvis Tourrockabillyrides


When listeners first heard Elvis on the airwaves he was introduced by one of rock and roll’s pioneer disc jockeys, Daddy-O Dewey Phillips, in July of 1954. Phillips was the first DJ to broadcast a young Elvis Presley’s “That’s Alright Mama” on his WHBQ show “Red, Hot and Blue”.

Rockabilly Rides’ “Red, Hot and Blue Tour” is an hour journey along the Memphis streets and landmarks Elvis frequented before he was dubbed the “King of Rock ‘n’ Roll”.  From his humble beginnings in a Memphis apartment, to where he worked, went to school and got a trim on that famous ducktail, to where he rehearsed with the Blue Moon Boys and the amphitheater where he performed his first professional live show.

These are just a few of the stops on the “Red, Hot and Blue” private tour.  Relive the days of an early Elvis in the city he called home before and long after he would rise to unprecedented fame.
