About ALOHA!

Elvis Presley makes television and entertainment history with his Elvis: Aloha from Hawaii - Via Satellite special. Performed at the Honolulu International Center Arena on January 14, 1973, broadcast live at 12:30 AM Hawaiian time, beamed via Globecam Satellite to Australia, South Korea, Japan, Thailand, the Philippines, South Vietnam and other countries. It is seen on a delayed basis in around thirty European countries. A tape of the show will be seen in America on April 4th on NBC. The live broadcast in January attracts 37.8% of the viewers in Japan, 91.8% in the Philippines, 70% in Hong Kong, and 70-80% of the viewers in Korea. The April showing in America will attract 51% of the television viewing audience and will be seen in more American households than man s first walk on the moon. In all, it will be seen in about forty countries by one billion to 1.5 billion people. Elvis commissions an American Eagle design for his jumpsuit for this show, his patriotic message to his worldwide audience. Never has one performer held the world s attention in such a way. Elvis is in top form physically and vocally. This is probably the pinnacle of his superstardom, one of the all-time great moments of his career. Elvis was very, very nervous at first. Nobody else had ever done a satellite show before. He was the very first entertainer, ever, to do a satellite show.

It was very expansive to rent the satellite for one hour, so Colonel Parker went to NBC, because they owned the satellite, actually it was their recording company. So they cut the deal and it was the first one ever.

Elvis was a nervous wreck. But as he went along rehearsing, and enjoying Hawaii, he became very comfortable with it. The thing about it, when you go on a satellite show, you go on stage at a certain time and you got to get off at a certain time, otherwise, they will just cut you off, the satellite will cut you off after one hour. So the hardest part that Elvis was worried about, was to time it right.

But as we all know it went along perfectly. Joe Esposito was at the side of the stage while Elvis was performing with a flashlight and about ten minutes before the end time, he flashed the light to let Elvis know he had ten minutes left. It was an unbelievable performance, it was all for charity, and he was very comfortable when he walked on stage. He did a great job, looked fabulous. Can we ask for more?

A great singer, in a great location, great music and it's now part of history.

Audience tickets for the January 14 concert and it's January 12 pre-broadcast rehearsal show carry no price. Each audience member is asked to pay whatever he or she can. The performances and concert merchandise sales are a benefit raising $75,000 for the Kui Lee Cancer Fund in Hawaii. (Kui Lee was a Hawaiian composer who had died of cancer while still in his thirties.)

Elvis arrived in Hawaii on January 9, 1973 and begun rehearsals at the Hawaiian Village Hotel while the Aloha set was being constructed.
These rehearsals lasted almost up to the first concert (The Alternate Aloha) on Friday January 12. The following night, at 12.30 a.m. January 14, Elvis took to the stage for the 'main event', Aloha From Hawaii, which was beamed via satellite around the world and seen in more than 40 countries by an estimated 1.5 billion people. More than $75,000 was raised for the Kui Lee Cancer Fund from voluntary donations on admission to each concert.

The magnitude of the event demanded Elvis step up to a new level and he did just that, performing at his vocal best with a power and feeling rarely matched in any other performance, or for that matter any other artist!

Aloha From Hawaii (the first live concert performance via satellite) was broadcast live to Asia and Australia, then on the following night to Europe. Aloha was not shown in the USA until April 4, when an expanded version was aired on NBC attracting 51% of the viewing audience.

Also included is the post concert 'insert song' session where Elvis recorded five songs ('No More' was not used) that were added to the expanded American TV broadcast. The original American broadcast version complete with the original bonus songs has been included for historical purposes.

This after-concert session was shot with two cameras. The positioning of the cameras – with Elvis off to one side or in a corner with lots of black background space – apparently was to accommodate and ease the construction of the montages of Elvis and Hawaiian scenery for the American special. A tricky thing to do, its seems, with the state of video production technology in 1973. For this USB VDRIVE package, all the black screen availability made it possible to present the complete tapes from both cameras on screen at once rather than assembling an edit from both. Here, for the very first time, are presented all takes of all five songs and all the other parts of the session that were captured on videotape, and there's no Hawaiian scenery.

This is the after-concert 'insert song' session in complete, uncut and uncensored form.

    Definitely the best Aloha from Hawaii version I’ve seen.

  2. olivier Seknazi

    Hello,
    I received the order [Order # 41934] made on February 3rd, containing the DVD “Virginia Love Elvis” as well as the Aloha 4K. Although not having a television or screen, in the same format, that in the presence of Aloha its quality is more than excellent, there are however at the level of unknown bonuses:
    – the interview on September 4, 1972
    – the interview of November 20, 1972
    – Hotel and the Dressing Room
    Presence on Youtube.
