Is there a web site that lists Elvis' concerts in the 50s?

I have the book at home, but I need to find out if he performed in Beaumont TX.

Good man Tom. I have a friend who is an editor of the paper there. He's looking for story ideas.

Have him talk to Stanley Oberst. He's the expert on Elvis in Texas.

I think I have his email address around here somewhere if he needs it.

Hi Rock King!

Does your friend have any pics of Elvis from any ogf these shows?

I have one that I believe is from one of the shows in June 1955.

When will this story be printed and how do I get a copy? I am, as you probably know, very interested in the 1950´s and always on the lookout for new info and pics from this perios.

When I did research for my book "The Atomic Powered Singer" I also browsed thru houndreds of microfilmed newspapers from 1954-1955 and I have clippings from most of his shows during this period as well.

Hope to hear more about this.

Sincerely
Brian

He doesn't have anything really. He was just looking for some story ideas and I ran it by him. I'll post a link if they decide to go with it.
