"That's All Right" Anniversary Tour: July 5

This Saturday, July 5, Backbeat Tours is hosting a special tour celebrating the 60th anniversary of Elvis' first recording That's All Right. This one-time-only tour will offer all the goodies of the Hound Dog tour - your favorite Elvis sites, live Elvis music performed by a professional musician, and great behind-the scenes stories - and will be stopping at Sun Studio for a commemorative ceremony and cake-cutting, featuring some surprise guests. You'll also visit the new Dewey Phillips' exhibit featuring his historic broadcast booth from radio station WHBQ. As all good Elvis fans know, Dewey was the DJ who first played an Elvis record on the air and was quite the character himself! But we'll leave those stories for the tour ....
