"Tonight You’ll See the Real Elvis Presley" This comment was made to the audience because three days earlier in New York City, Steve Allen introduced Elvis on the nationwide television show as the “New Elvis Presley” which was Steve’s interpretation of what Elvis should be. Elvis at Russwood Park countered that comment by telling the audience that "Tonight you’ll See the real Elvis Presley," and proceeded to sing and gyrate all over the stage.
