Elvis appeared briefly on stage with Danny Thomas at Thomas' Shower of Stars to benefit St. Jude's Hospital at Russwood Park in Memphis. The show included movie stars Jane Russell and Susan Hayward, country singer Ferlin Huskey, pop singer Roberta Sherwood and comedian Lou Costello.

1955 show (Left) 1957 show (Right)
I understand that Elvis didn't perform the night of June 28th 1957,but the second photo above , and extract below ,sure give the impression otherwise!


"The evening set the stage for the future. In 1957, entertainers such as Jane Russell, singer Roberta Sherwood and the yet-to-be-crowned King of Rock ’n’ Roll, Elvis Presley, would perform in the second star-studded gala. And just as before, rain threatened the event. But the Memphis newspaper headline brimmed with the confidence of two years ago: “Rain predicted, but never fear, Danny’s here.” And, just as in 1955, the thundershower miraculously waited patiently for the show to end."
