The old City Auditorium March 15, 1958. 

"The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet actor put on two shows that day. A screaming and almost hysterical crowd, mostly of teen-age girls, filled the City Auditorium when young Rick Nelson appeared there Saturday evening.

Teen-agers and some adults marked the end of his rock n’ roll tunes with high-pitched whoops, which continued for minutes after each number. Police officers kept a friendly watch and helped to subdue the noise after it had gone for some time.

Young rock n’ roll fans kept camera flash bulbs popping during and between acts as they gave an overwhelming vote of confidence to the young singer.

Before Nelson’s performance that night, he managed to take questions from high school journalists during a news conference at the Shamrock Hilton. The Post said the teens actually tried to crash the news conference.”
