- Day by Day: What did Elvis Presley do on May 24, 1956
Elvis flew to the next gig with Gene Smith and Tom Diskin while the band drove again.
Elvis performed at the Municipal Auditorium Arena, Kansas City, Missouri. However, there was a big riot and DJ's drums and Bill's bass were smashed, while DJ himself was thrown into the orchestra pit.
The next day the paper wrote: "Elvis Presley flees to car after 20 minutes on stage."
At 4.35 Elvis flew to Detroit.
