One of The King’s most iconic 1970’s shows

Celebrate Elvis Presley’s life and legend by watching the 1973 “Aloha from Hawaii Concert”

The famous Elvis Presley concert was broadcast live via satellite on January 14, 1973. The concert took place at the Honolulu International Center (HIC) in Honolulu (now known as the Neal S. Blaisdell Center) and aired in over 40 countries across Asia and Europe (who received the telecast the next day, also in primetime). Despite the satellite innovation, the United States did not air the concert until April 4, 1973 (because the concert took place the same day as Super Bowl VII). Viewing figures have been estimated to be between 1 and 1.5 billion viewers worldwide. The show was the most expensive entertainment special at the time, costing $2.5 million. Among the songs played at the show are “Hound Dog”, “Suspicious Minds” and “Can’t Help Falling in Love”. Elvis also did several covers including “Fever”, “Johnny B. Goode” and “I Can’t Stop Loving You” among others. Celebrate the life of Elvis Presley by watching the iconic show.
