April 12, 1956
Elvis performed at the Armory, Albuquerque, New Mexico, at 7.00 and 9.00 p.m. where he was greeted with a scream from the audience that almost split the roof. Afterwards, in the dressing room, Elvis declared: "It Makes me want to cry. How does all this happen to me?" He then showed off his horseshoe diamond ring (!) and boasted that he owned 40 suits and 27 pair of shoes.
