Here's a SUPER RARE BILL HAILEY AND HIS COMETS ticket from May 19th, 1956 in New Orleans, Louisiana. Although technically it may have started a little earlier, the mid 50's was when Rock and Roll really broke out! This talented singer/musician was very much alongside Elvis, Buddy Holly, Jerry Lee Lewis, Chuck Berry and Johnny Burnette breaking down barriers to what would become one of the greatest music genres ever brought to the public, and the very start of the modern "concert" as we know it today.Although he was a little older and lived a little longer than Elvis, he was not nearly as adored (he was possibly more popular in Europe than here though). He left us much more quietly but suffering similar problems (alcohol) although it was brain cancer that took him. He died in 1981 and was inducted in the Hall of Fame in 1987. Like Elvis, he was more of a bold rocker for the time (as well as his band), and when he made his'moves or antics' on stage, this was all very new. The ticket is in great condition, nice and firm but there is light wear around the edges as you can see in the photo. Due to age it has faded just a bit, mostly on the front.
