Elvis Presley's first, apparently not very successful, appearance in Las Vegas, as an "extra added attraction," was in the Venus Room of the new Frontier Hotel from April 23 through May 6, 1956. Freddie Bell and the Bellboys were the hot act in town, and Elvis went to the Sands to take in their show. Elvis not only enjoyed the show, but also loved their reworking of "Hound Dog" and asked Freddie if he had any objections to him recording his own version. By May 16 Elvis had added "Hound Dog" to his live performances.[13][19] The song was done as comic relief, and Presley based the lyrics, which he sometimes changed,[20] and "gyrations" on what he had seen at the Sands. The song always got a big reaction and became the standard closer.
