Meet the dog at the scene of the most sexually charged concert of the 1950's. The famous hound is to be displayed at Liverpool's Fingerprints of Elvis exhibition for a few weeks commencing 1 November 2003.
Elvis shocked his audience when in a burst of high spirits he rolled around on the stage floor with the stuffed animal in a highly uninhibited and provocative manner during a fast and furious rendition of 'Hound Dog' at the inaugural concert of his 1957 California Concert Tour. The LA Deputy Police Chief ordered the Vice Squad to instruct Elvis to eliminate any 'sexy overtones' from his performances or risk obscenity charges. Even Colonel Parker took him to task.
The hound is an original R.C.A. 'Nipper' Dog from the California Concert Tour 1957.
