THE ULTIMATE CONCERT
It’s January 14th 1973
Elvis Presley takes the stage at the Honolulu International Centre, now known as the Neal S. Blaisdell Centre, to make history. Wearing a gem-studded white jumpsuit and a hip-length cape, Presley performed a 22-song set and said “Aloha”, in a way only the ‘King of Rock’n’Roll can, not just to the thousands of fans in attendance, but to the world.
‘Aloha From Hawaii via Satellite’ was one of the most significant live performances by Elvis Presley for a multitude of reasons. Using, at the time, cutting edge satelite technology, the show was the first live satelite broadcast to feature a single performer in history. It was seen by an estimated 1.3 billion people at the time of it’s showing and the soundtrack of the show reached number one on Billboard’s Hot 100. It was a true spectacle in every sense of the word.
And it all came from Presley and his want to entertain”all his fans throughout the world” according to his manager Colonel Tom Parker
