Regarding the story about the 25 greatest performers in Las Vegas history, which ranked Elvis No. 3:

There are a plethora of reasons of why Elvis, the king of rock ’n’ roll, is really No. 1. But the main reason: No one, since or before, has performed 57 shows in 28 nights at the Las Vegas Hilton.

In the early ’70s , Elvis did 8 p.m. and midnight shows through Labor Day and then added a Labor Day 2 a.m. show to wind up the four weeks.

That’s a feat that will never be duplicated.
