JULY 22-24, 1975 - Almost 20 years after his last Asheville concert, Elvis made a triumphant return, filling the Asheville Civic Center in three wildly successful concerts. Originally booked for just one performance, all the tickets were sold in three hours, 45 minutes, veteran Citizen-Times columnist Bob Terrell reported at the time. Two more shows were added. In all, more than 22,000 tickets were sold - about 7,400 per show.
I find that sell out much more impressive since it means people lining up and each sale processed by a person.
