Elvis Presley made television and entertainment history with his Elvis, Aloha from Hawaii concert television special. The performance took place at the Honolulu International Center Arena in Honolulu, Hawaii, on January 14, 1973.

 

In all, it was seen in about 40 countries by 1-to-1.5 billion people. A global smash. Entertainment events presented live via satellite are common today but, in 1973, this was a first. Never before had one performer held the world’s attention in such a way. Aloha from Hawaii presents Elvis Presley at the pinnacle of his superstardom, giving one of the most outstanding concert performances of his career.
