Where Rock'n'Roll Was Born - the Official Sun Records Concert Show
70th Anniversary of Elvis’ First Recording Session
On July 18, 1953, Presley first walked through the doors of the Memphis Recording Service at the Sun Record Company, now commonly known as Sun Records, paid $3.98 and recorded a double-sided demo acetate, ‘My Happiness’ and ‘That's When Your Heartaches Begin’. The rest became Rock’n’Roll history!
Revisit the blessed recording studio and the legendary record label that brought you Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Johnny Cash, Roy Orbison, Carl Perkins, Rufus Thomas and scores more rockin' pioneers, as they once again come to life live on stage.
The distinctive sound we know and love today was crafted from gospel, blues, hillbilly, country, boogie and western swing by musical visionary Sam Phillips. From his trailblazing Memphis studio, Sam Phillips brought us That's Alright Mama, Great Balls of Fire, I Walk the Line, Whole Lotta Shakin', Bear Cat, Blue Suede Shoes, Good Rockin' Tonight. . . among hundreds of hits that would influence the world of music for generations to come. Sam transcended musical and racial barriers and under his guidance, the 'Sun Sound' was born.
Featuring musical instruments of the era, starring a multi-talented cast of singers and a supporting cast of amazing musicians, the sound of Sun is brought to life live on stage in the official concert show that takes you back to the birthplace of rock'n'roll.
Supported and endorsed by The Sun Entertainment Corporation, USA - long live rock'n'roll. . . long live Sun!
