"The costumes were soon fit for a king -
King Frederick of Hollywood...
He gave his audiences what they never knew
they wanted: a polyester blend of classics and crass,
of Van Cliburn and Van Halen..."

TIME

Liberace flies on stage in a purple bird outfit. His chauffeur/valet immediately helps him remove his cape, with a flourish of course.

Liberace continued to perform through November
of 1986 despite his diagnosis of AIDS in 1985.

Two tickets from one of Liberace's final performances at Radio City Music Hall. Not used by me, unfortunately.

BACK TO 1986
