Elvis the FoxFrom Elvis the Fox
When Elvis came to Detroit on Friday, May 25, 1956, he completed a Midwest outing. When Alan opened the drapes and shouted: "Ladies and gentlemen, Elvis Presley," the screams were already so strong that nobody could hear anything. He was standing his feet apart to swing them, then squatting down to reach out to his palms.
These photos show Elvis in and around the Fox Theatre, welcome the Detroit Times competition winner behind the stage, relax in an inner-city porch and enjoy a grown-up outing. Teenage Detroiters may have been ugly on Elvis' advent, but paper authors have hardly hidden their contempt. After his Fox shows on May 25, 1956, Elvis Presley relaxed at an adults' birthday celebration in Detroit.
A Detroit Times essays competition, these happy youngsters met Elvis Presley behind the stage at the Fox on May 25, 1956.

In Elvis' typical jagged Detroit Times tavloid look, Vera Brown wrote: "He seldom gets a cut, makes a kind of hillside derivate.
brown ran into elvis at the airfield, where she asked why he needed four cadillacs. If I knew I was going to tell you," Elvis answered courteously. Unbelievably, the Friday before Elvis' three Friday shows (4, 7 and 9:45 p. m.), Bob Bothwell, CEO of Fox Theatre, said good fits were still available.
Like Elvis wasn't enough fun for the $1.50 card, there were a lot of other things on the bill: Carol Bainbridge at the tender ages of 14 was one of the "teenagers" who really didn't bother what snappish middle-aged authors of Elvis thought. She had Elvis on his WXYZ TV chat show with her dad, Larry McCann, and he got her two seats to the 4:00 show.
At this early show Elvis was presented by a young Detroiter, Lee Alan Reicheld, who worked all evening at the WJLB. Reicheld, better known under his later DJ name Lee Alan, was recounted by WJLB's top jockey'Frantic' Ernie Durham that he had a show for him.
He said: "You have to go to the Fox Theatre and present Elvis," Alan remembers. Alan turned around, and it was Elvis, always the gentlemen. Lee Reicheld', Alan said to him. When Alan opened the drapes and shouted:'Ladies and Gentlemen, Elvis Presley', the shouting was already so strong that nobody could hear anything.
He was standing his feet apart to swing them, then squatting down to reach out to his palms. Detroit News critic identified "Long Tall Sally" but used several zingers, described Elvis as an ex-truckman with a Shimmy and sniffed: "The guitars rarely became twang because Elvis was too occupied to bend his knee and swing his arms like a souvenir board in the palm-laden era of the burlesque".
Meanwhile, another Detroit R.D. character set off behind the stage at the Fox in Elvis' wardrobe to encounter the legendary man. Seymour has been involved in controversies since he fired Elvis on his WKMH broadcast as a phenomena that would not last. It was a glimmick, Seymour points out; he didn't really like Elvis.
Seymour did not present the vocalist at the later shows - this honour was reserved for Mickey Schorr. There, Seymour discovered that despite the salutary media coverage of non-drinking and the like, Elvis had a lot of pleasure.
