We can probably still rule it out but not because of this photo. This is not the stage they played in that Auditorium, though it is in the building see

Cool James, I love your websites with different venues. Keep up the magnificent work.

For what it's worth, I just stumbled across a 2002 auction of Presley memorabilia that seems to imply both of these are from Oklahoma on April 19, 1956. Note they get the show date wrong in their lot description:

Thanks Doc for your input in this topic. I´m still struggling with those two photos.
I don´t know where they got the info from but the photo definitely doesn´t belong to Oklahoma City, April 19, 1956. And not from April 15, 1956 either (being San Antonio).
Elvis wore his new yellow jacket with black lapels and none of the two photos from this venue show Elvis wearing his new jacket.

Well, we´ll nail this one some day.
