As I mentioned in another topic I am just returning from my annual US vacation.

I managed to snap pictures of a few Elvis coliseums. Maybe you are interested in these.

Here are a few of the Rapides Parish Coliseum in Alexandria, Louisiana:

Special thanks to the fellows in Murfreesboro who let me in despite of my european "terrorist" accent :lol:

I got pictures of three or four more places. Wanna see them?

I always enjoy seeing photographs of the venues that Elvis performed. Especially the inside. Thanks for posting them.

Anyone got any pictures of an empty H.I.C. (formerly known as).

Or other venues?

Here's Freedom Hall in Louisville where I saw him.

Keep posting these interesting, (and great), photos :!:

Like so many other Elvis fans, I'm always intersted in seeing the venues Elvis Presley performed in.

Thanks...

At first sight,these coliseums didn't change a lot since the 70's.

Thanks for posting those shots. I never get tired of seeing the old venues. It's interesting to see how similar the Rapides Coliseum is to the Mid-South Coliseum in Memphis. Style of the times, I guess.

You may already be aware of this, but Haruo's site includes shots of many of the Elvis concert venues, too:

Thanks KHoots, I do know the site, but I wanted to take a picture or two myself (for my "USA 2006" photo album 8)).

Here's the Civic Center of Savannah, Georgia

in 2003 I visited Memphis and the Mid south coliseum and also got to see the inside.

Here are a few photos:

and seen from the side of the stage:

and the dressing rooms where according to our guide Elvis did spend a few minutes before the show.

That is a great pic. You can almost feel the electricity in the air.
