Blue Suede Shoe Ceremony To Mark Site Last Elvis Concert

Hoosiers will be able to remember Elvis Presley today, thanks to a giant blue suede shoe. The shoe will be unveiled at Market and Alabama streets near the former Market Square Arena site at 11 a.m. The shoe is in honor of Elvis Presley's last live performance: June 26, 1977. After the unveiling, the shoe will be moved to the West Plaza outside Conseco Fieldhouse.

For a minute there, I thought they were talking about Memphis. Market and Alabama streets join with Lauderdale Street where I live downtown. Yes, there should have been some notice about this. Sometimes, the news comes in too late. It sure is a nice gesture but, many more fans could have arranged to meet if they had known earlier........shame.

Thank God it's a shoe and not a statue, 'cause it may look like the Star Wars Bust! :S

The shoe idea sounds kinda' corny. How 'bout a statue of our man!

It's a shame there wasn't notice about this a few days ago. Most of the fans in Toledo could have been there to celebrate this event or turn it into an event, if necessary!
