"Elvis has left the building"

"Elvis has left the building"

Published at 10:19am 5th November 2017.

For the first time ever we heard that "Elvis had left the building".

Back in 1971 on 5th November - The King of Rock n' Roll started his 15 date North America tour.

It kicked off at the the Metropolitan Sports Center in Minneapolis.

It was there where announcer Al Dvorin uttered the famous words for the first time.

Al was trying to calm fans in the arena who were calling for an encore.

Since then - it's become one of the most sayings associated with the legendary musician and had been become a catchphrase all of its own.

And who wouldn't hear more of this?!
