- Day by day
Due to a snowstorm Elvis and the band arrived too late in New York, where they stayed at the Warwick Hotel.
The $185 EP initial ring which Elvis had bought the week before was delivered to him by jeweler Benny Kaplan.
At 8.00 p.m. Elvis performed at the Stage Show, CBS Studio. Because of Carl Perkins' accident the day before, Elvis chose not to perform Blue Suede Shoes. Instead he did Money Honey and his big hit Heartbreak Hotel.
