CELEBRATE ELVIS AND THE 40TH ANNIVERSARY OF ALOHA FROM HAWAII

Thursday, January 10 – Tuesday, January 15, 2013
Image

Experience six days and five nights at the Hilton Hawaiian Village Waikiki Beach and enjoy the perfect mix of exceptional resort accommodations,
classic Hawaiian hospitality and the best Elvis-themed entertainment in the world. And best of all, this is an all-inclusive entertainment package
unless otherwise stated. Need to arrive early or stay later? We’ve arranged a special rate just for our guests.

Thursday, January 10, 2013

Arrive at Hotel
Arrive in Hawaii like a VIP as you are greeted by a member of the Elvis in Hawaii Team and presented with a beautiful fresh flower lei. You'll be escorted in baggage claim to
an air-conditioned luxury motor coach waiting to transport you directly to the Hilton Hawaiian Village Resort. As you settle in for the short drive, Elvis music becomes the background for the sights and sounds of your first day in paradise.

Our expert staff, which includes associates from EPE, will be available to assist you during the duration of our stay to make certain Hawaii never turns blue for you. The Elvis in Hawaii Service Center will be conveniently located in the lobby of the Hilton Tapa Tower where your room will be located. Hours of operation will be from 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. daily and we’ll provide information, restaurant reservations, rental car assistance and schedule private excursions. We’ll be turning the Hilton Tapa Tower into an Elvis paradise so, as you arrive and begin to unwind, Andy Childs will be live on the Tapa Stage. This will be the perfect spot for your first tropical cocktail. By the way, The Blue Hawaii drink was invented in 1957 by Harry Yee, the legendary head bartender of the Hilton Hawaiian Village!

Aloha Dance Party
Lagoon Green, Hilton Hawaiian Village Resort
Image

The first night, kick-off your once-in-a-lifetime trip with live Elvis music! You will hear the sound of the pu or conch shell to commence the Aloha Dance Party which will
feature Terry Mike Jeffrey and band, Andy Childs, Jamie Aaron Kelley, and lots of surprises. The evening also includes heavy Hawaiian pupu or hors d'oeuvres and a cash bar. You’ll dance the night away with all your favorite Elvis fans, movie co-stars and friends of Elvis. This will be a great place to make a lot of new friends who enjoy your same passion - Elvis Presley! VIP package holders will enjoy a special reception that will start an hour prior to the event.

Friday, January 11, 2013

Welcome Breakfast
Image

Duke Kahanamoku Lagoon, Hilton Hawaiian Village Resort

You won’t want to sleep in on your first full day on the island so we’ll have a tropical breakfast on the Great Lawn of the Hilton Hawaiian Village featuring breath-taking
views of the recently rejuvenated Duke Kahanamoku Lagoon. Elvis fans will also get the opportunity to meet former "Girls!Girls!Girls!" co-star and internationally renowned pianist, Ginny Tiu.
Image

We want to provide plenty of opportunity for you to relax and enjoy the Hilton resort so after breakfast you can shop, take a morning walk along the beach,
or go for a swim at the pool next to the outdoor Tapa Stage where Jamie Aaron Kelley will fill the air with the sounds of Elvis music.

Image
Tour of Elvis' Hawaii
How about a Hawaiian road trip? You’ll board a luxurious motor coach and visit the sights and sounds of Elvis’ Hawaii! And to make it even more unique, the team from the Graceland archives have created a special video and audio presentation that features rarely-seen home movie footage of Elvis himself touring the island! Your tour guide will
also be on hand to point out the sites and share information. Your first stop is world-renowned Waikiki Beach next to Le‘ahi or Diamond Head, the mountain featured prominently as the backdrop of “Blue Hawaii.” Your next stop will be a visit to Hanauma Bay, where a good portion of the beach scenes were filmed for “Blue Hawaii.” Get your camera ready because although the shack where Chad and Maile changed into their swimsuits is long gone, the beach at Hanauma Bay remains just as breathtaking with its white sand and turquoise waters. Elvis also returned there in August of 1965 to film the helicopter rescue scene with Donna Butterworth for the movie “Paradise Hawaiian Style.” Also included will be locations from “Girls, Girls!, Girls!” We’ll continue along the eastern coastline with a stop by the “Blow Hole” to view a spectacular seawater eruption from a natural saltwater geyser and then on to the famous Sandy and Makapuu Beaches that are known for their excellent body surfing. You’ll then proceed through the historic Waimanalo community and continue a little further up the east coast to Lanikai Beach where Elvis rented a private home during his last Hawaiian vacation in March of 1977. As we wind our way to Central Oahu, you’ll visit Punchbowl Crater and the National Memorial of the Pacific. You’ll discover a world of contrast as you tour Honolulu’s bustling Downtown area and historic Chinatown right next door. Our final stop before returning to the hotel is at Hilo Hattie where you will be able to view the “exclusive” Elvis section and enjoy an Elvis-themed shopping excursion like nothing you have ever experienced before. We have some very special surprises in store for you there.

Free Time on Friday Night
After you return to the Hilton there is plenty to do Friday night. You can enjoy a free Elvis Hawaii movie screening, an evening walk along the beach or visit Kalakaua
Avenue and check out the local attractions like Teddy Bear World or Hard Rock Cafe. The Royal Hawaiian Centeris conveniently located in the heart of Waikiki.
Everything mentioned plus lots more is located within walking distance of the Hilton or cabs are available at the hotel.
Image

Legends in Concert Waikiki is also presenting a spectacular tribute to the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll and other legendary entertainers at the Royal Hawaiian Theater on Friday,
January 11 and Sunday, January 13, 2013, at 8:00 p.m. Click here for more information and to purchase tickets.
*Please note: tickets to Legends in Concert Elvis show must be purchased separately and are not included in the package.

Saturday, January 12, 2013
Saturday is going to be a day full of unique and interesting people and places connected to Elvis and his love of Hawaii.

Conversations on Elvis - Hawaiian Style
Legends Theater
First, you’ll take a quick drive to the Royal Hawaiian Center where you’ll take your seat at the newly renovated Royal Hawaiian Theater for a very special “Conversations
on Elvis – Hawaiian Style.” Hosted by Elvis fan favorite Joey Sulipeck, special guests currently scheduled include: celebrated Hawaiian DJ who brought Elvis to Hawaii, Tom Moffatt; Jerry Hopkins, author of “Elvis in Hawaii”; Jan Shepard, Elvis’ co-star in “King Creole” and “Paradise, Hawaiian Style”; and former members of the group
J. D. Sumner and The Stamps Quartet who sang back up for Elvis in the 1970s and were part of Elvis’ “Aloha from Hawaii” concert.

Tour the USS Arizona Memorial
Image

After you return to the Hilton for a short break, you’ll board one of the luxury motor coaches for a journey to the USS Arizona Memorial located at Pearl Harbor in Honolulu.
As a special treat, your ride will include a unique video presentation about Elvis and the USS Arizona created just for you by the archivists at Graceland. The visit to the USS Arizona Memorial will be a moving experience. The USS Arizona Memorial marks the resting place of 1,102 of the 1,177 sailors killed on the USS Arizona during the attack at
Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, and commemorates the events of that day. In 1949, one of the goals of the Pacific War Memorial Commission was the building a in the
waters above the wreckage of the USS Arizona. Years later, Colonel Tom Parker, working with Tom Moffat, coordinated an Elvis concert as a benefit for the project.
Elvis' benefit would raise nearly $65,000 for the memorial building fund. All proceeds went directly to the project, without anything held for expenses. Even Elvis and Colonel Parker purchased a ticket for the concert! To Elvis it was always a source of quiet satisfaction and pride to know that he had a significant role in making the memorial possible.
In addition to touring the memorial, you’ll find the two new state-of-the-art exhibit galleries "Road to War" and "Attack" something you won’t want to miss. These galleries display personal memorabilia, dramatic photographs, artifacts of the battle and other exhibits. There will be lots of surprises and special happenings during this visit.

Free Time on Saturday Night
You will have free time on Saturday night after touring the USS Arizona. If you are looking for a great show that evening, the first-ever Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest preliminary round in Hawaii will take place that evening at 8:00 p.m. This event will be hosted by Legends in Concert Waikiki and will take place at the recently-renovated
Royal Hawaiian Theater located at The Royal Hawaiian Center, just a few blocks from the Hilton Hawaiian Village. Click here for more information and to purchase tickets.
*Please note: tickets to the Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest must be purchased separately and are not included in the package.

Sunday, January 13, 2013
Gospel Performance
Image

Legends Theater
We’re taking the “gospel singings” that Elvis loved so much and adding a tropical spin. You’ll board the luxury bus and head to church - Elvis style! We’ll celebrate one
of Elvis’ favorite styles of music with one of his favorite gospel groups. Live on stage will be former members of the group J.D. Sumner and The Stamps Quartet.
The group was featured prominently in the concert and album “Aloha from Hawaii.” Joining them that morning will be Terry Mike Jeffrey, Andy Childs, Jamie Aaron
Kelley and lots of surprises. It will be a magical morning Elvis fans will be talking about for years to come.

Take an Excursion

To celebrate the 40th anniversary of this remarkable show, you’ll have the best seats in the house for a screening of “Aloha from Hawaii” in incredible high-definition re-mastered video created

the king! You’ll be saying “Mahalo” as you board the luxury shuttle that evening and head back to The Hilton Hawaiian Village - exactly like Elvis did in 1973. VIP package
holders will enjoy a special reception that will start an hour prior to the event.


Tuesday, January 15, 2013

with VIP service including bag handling. We’ll be at the Elvis in Hawaii Service desk all day to make sure everyone has a simple and easy experience leaving the Hilton
getting to the airport and headed home - until the next Elvis experience.

ELVIS PRESLEY’s ALOHA FROM HAWAII VIA SATELLITE: LEGACY EDITION
COMMEMORATES 40th ANNIVERSARY OF LANDMARK CONCERTS
DELUXE 2-CD PACKAGE COUPLES TWO HISTORIC ALBUMS:
..................................................................................................
CD ONE: Aloha From Hawaii via Satellite, remastered edition of soundtrack
from world’s first full-length concert satellite broadcast of January 1973;

CD TWO: The Rehearsal Show, remixed and remastered edition
of early ‘dress rehearsal’ show restored to original, live song sequence

PLUS: 5 bonus songs recorded at 3 a.m. in behind-closed-doors session
[/b]
............................................................................

The 40th anniversary of the historic one-hour satellite broadcast of Elvis Presley from the
Honolulu International Center Arena in January 1973, viewed by over 1.5 billion people
worldwide, is now commemorated with the release of ALOHA FROM HAWAII VIA
SATELLITE: LEGACY EDITION. This deluxe double-CD package will be available
everywhere March 19, 2013, through RCA/Legacy, a division of SONY MUSIC
ENTERTAINMENT.


ALOHA FROM HAWAII VIA SATELLITE: LEGACY EDITION marks the first time
that both shows performed by Elvis, as released separately in 1973
(the original double-LP Aloha From Hawaii via Satellite) and 1988 (the CD The Alternate Aloha), have been coupled together
in one package.

At the same time, the show that The Alternate Aloha was based on has been
completely remixed from the original multi-track tapes.


Accompanying the two-CD set will be a booklet with rare photos and a new liner notes
essay written by BBC presenter, producer and musician Stuart Colman.

[b] This new Legacy Edition was produced by Rob Santos and Ernst Mikael Jørgensen, who along with Roger Semon,
are the respected directors of RCA’s Elvis catalog for over two decades.


“Aloha From Hawaii via Satellite” was the first time that a full-length concert was
broadcast around the world. It was the most expensive entertainment special up to then, costing
$2.5 million.

Over 6,000 fans were in attendance for both shows at the H.I.C.
(now known as the Blaisdell Arena).

His love for Hawaii had first been demonstrated in March 1961, when he
raised $62,000 with a concert at the Bloch Arena, toward the funding of the USS Arizona Memorial .

................................................................................................................

The “Aloha From Hawaii via Satellite” show that was actually broadcast was a second
show, that started at 12:30 a.m. in Hawaii on Sunday morning, January 14, 1973.

Clearly at the top of his game, Elvis delivered a 24-song tour de force that pulled songs from every phase of
his career. It was a painstaking process to develop material that did not duplicate very much of
his Live At Madison Square Garden concerts of June 1972 (as heard on RCA/Legacy’s most
recent Prince From Another Planet commemorative 2-CD+DVD package, released November
2012).


Nor did Elvis want to duplicate very much of his then-current MGM theatrical release,
Elvis On Tour, filmed in March-April 1972, the Golden Globe award-winning film which turned
out to be the final motion picture of his lifetime.


Following the 12:30 show, at about 3:00 a.m., the ensemble regrouped (without an
audience) to record five additional songs exclusively for the U.S. broadcast, four of which
originated on Elvis’ old Blue Hawaii movie soundtrack of 1961: “Blue Hawaii,” “Ku-U-I-Po,”
“No More,” and “Hawaiian Wedding Song.”

The fifth was Gordon Lightfoot’s “Early Morning Rain,” emblematic of the contemporary folk-rock singer-songwriter boom to which Elvis was surprisingly well attuned in the ’70s.


“Aloha From Hawaii via Satellite” was broadcast to more than 40 nations, and broke
viewing records in Japan, the Philippines, Korea, Hong Kong and Australia.

Aloha From Hawaii via Satellite, the double-LP containing all 24 songs from the broadcast, was rush released to
arrive in stores the first week of February, 1973.

........................................................................................
It debuted in the February 24th Billboard 200 albums chart, and sold a half-million units in its first four weeks. The single from the concert, Elvis’ version of James Taylor’s “Steamroller Blues,” debuted in April and reached the Top 20,
selling in excess of 400,000 copies, #10 in Cashbox and #17 in Billboard.

In the U.S., the broadcast was in fact postponed so as not to conflict with MGM’s Elvis
On Tour.

.........................................................................................................................

When “Aloha From Hawaii via Satellite” was finally aired in the U.S. on April 4th, the
Nielsen ratings had the show in 33.8% of homes and reaching 51% of those watching television.

The double-LP immediately vaulted up the charts, taking the #1 spot in Billboard’s May 5th issue. It stayed on the chart for 52 weeks, and was certified 5-times platinum by the RIAA.The album was Elvis’ first #1 since the Roustabout movie soundtrack from January 1965
.
It was not generally known at the time that the Friday evening (January 12th) dress rehearsal had also been recorded, as a safety backup.
Fifteen years later in June 1988 (more than a decade after Elvis’ death), the show was finally issued on CD as The Alternate Aloha.

....................................................................................................................................
However, to make room for three of the four Blue Hawaii songs (from the 3 a.m. session) at the
end of the CD, it was necessary to omit “Johnny B. Goode,” “I Can't Stop Loving You” and the
“Long Tall Sally/ Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On” medley. ALOHA FROM HAWAII VIA
SATELLITE: LEGACY EDITION now restores those tracks in the sequence where they were
originally performed, and adds the four Blue Hawaii songs plus “Early Morning Rain” as five
bonus tracks.


In early 1973, Elvis Presley was performing at one of the highest peaks of his career, and
ALOHA FROM HAWAII VIA SATELLITE is proof positive of that. As Ernst Mikael Jørgensen writes in his essential research guide, Elvis Presley: A Life In Music (St. Martin’s Press, 1998):

“The immense pressure of being beamed live to one billion people didn’t seem to
faze Elvis a great deal; showing little evidence of nerves, he was highly focused, and he executed
a flawless set that sparkled with all the flash of his image.

The unparalleled media attention and size of the audience, not to mention the worldwide number one album that followed, were perhaps the most effective statement ever engineered of one artist’s worldwide power.”

Here are some Facts About Aloha Show - Enjoy Y'all Facts about the Aloha from Hawaii television special:

- In September of 1972, Elvis participated in a press conference, between the dinner and midnight shows in Las Vegas, announcing plans for a television concert to be broadcast via satellite around the world from Hawaii. It was predicted that the show would reach the largest audience in television history and that the live album would be a big hit.



- In November of 1972, Elvis appeared at a press conference in Hawaii regarding his upcoming satellite show. It was announced that it will be a benefit for the Kui Lee Cancer Fund. (Kui Lee was a Hawaiian composer who had died of cancer while still in his thirties.)

- The live broadcast in January attracted 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 attracted 51% of the television viewing audience, and was seen in more American households than man’s first walk on the moon.

- Audience tickets for the January 14 concert and its January 12 pre-broadcast rehearsal show carried no price. Each audience member was asked to pay whatever he or she could.

The performances and concert merchandise - The soundtrack album was soon released and went to number one on the Billboard pop album chart, and stayed on the chart at various positions for 52 weeks. The show later continued on television and eventually home video.

- The show was one hour in length, including commercials. After the show, Elvis and his bandmates came back out on stage in the empty arena and videotape performances of the songs "Blue Hawaii," "Ku-u-i-po," and "Hawaiian Wedding Song," which he had first done for his 1961 hit movie, Blue Hawaii, plus "Early Morning Rain" and "No More."

- Elvis told Bill Belew he wanted the jumpsuit for this special to say “America” to the worldwide viewing audience. Bill told Elvis that, except for the American flag, he could think of nothing other than the American Eagle. Elvis said “I like it.” And that’s how one of Elvis' most famous costumes came to be.

Elvis Presley Hawaii Films and Concerts

There's no question that Elvis Presley loved Hawaii. Whether it was to hold a concert, conduct a benefit, film a motion picture or just vacation with the family, Hawaii held a special place in his heart and the people of Hawaii loved him right back.

[b]Elvis first visited Hawaii in 1957 for three concerts including a performance for the troops and their families at Schofield Barracks. He returned in 1961 for a benefit to raise funds for the building of the Arizona Memorial at Pearl Harbor.

From 1961-1966 Elvis starred in three films that were made in Hawaii: Blue Hawaii (1961), Girls!, Girls!, Girls! (1962) and Paradise Hawaiian Style (1966).

In 1973, Elvis returned to Hawaii for a live sateliite concert, Aloha from Hawaii, which broke all records for a concert by a single entertainer. He would return again to Hawaii just months before his death in 1977 for a vacation with family and friends.

Even to this day, 35 years after his death, the memories of Elvis are very strong in the islands. Movie tours take island visitors to locations where scenes from his films were shot. A new hit show, Legends in Concert Waikiki's "Rock-A-Hula", includes two superb world-class Elvis tribute artists, one portraying the young Elvis of his Hawaii movie years, the other the older Elvis who performed in 1973.

.................................................................................................................................................
In January 2013, a six-day celebration honoring the 40th anniversary of Elvis's "Aloha from Hawaii" concert will take place, aptly named Elvis Presley's Aloha from Hawaii, the 40th Anniversary Celebration.
...........................................................................................................................
Fortunately for Elvis' millions of fans, both old and new, each of his three motion pictures filmed in Hawaii as well has the 1973 concert are available on DVD.

...............................................................................................
[b]Aloha From Hawaii - 1973

Elvis's historic 1973 concert from Honolulu was beamed live via Globecam Satellite to Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Thailand, The Phillipines, South Vietnam and other countries. It was seen in over 30 countries in Europe shortly thereafter. Across the globe it attracted record audiences.

Unfortunately, the show did not air in the United States on NBC until three months later and in a oddly edited format. Still, it attracted 51% of the television viewing audience in the USA.

This Deluxe Edition DVD on two disks contains virtually all of the footage taken for the show.


Disk one includes a 17:30 minute chapter showing the uncut version of Elvis' arrival in Waikiki, the 56:39 minute filming of the rehearsal concert on January 12, 1973 before a live audience, and the 1:04:18 footage of the live concert on January 14, 1973 that was aired live and on taped-delay satellite transmission for countries around the world.

Disk 2 contains the 27:00 minute post-concert "insert" songs session taped after 12:30 a.m. following the live concert and after the audience's departure. The second disk also contains the 1:16:39 broadcast version of Elvis, Aloha from Hawaii that aired on NBC on April 4, 1973.

During the concert Elvis performed over 20 of his biggest hits including See See Rider, Burning Love, Early Morning Rain, Blue Suede Shoes, Hound Dog, Blue Hawaii, Suspicious Minds, I'll Remember You, the Hawaiian Wedding Song and Can't Help Falling in Love.

Honolulu Stadium was the site for his 11/10/57 concert. The stadium has since been demolished, replaced by Old Stadium Park. The Honolulu International Center is now the Neal S. Blaisdell Center.

It was the location for concerts on 11/17-18/72 as well as the rehearsal show and the now famous satellite broadcast of "Aloha From Hawaii" 12/1 & 14/1/73.

The Schofield Army Barracks was the venue for his concert on 11/11/57 and visitors are restricted- Unless you are Army personnel you cant visit this -


The benefit concert given on 3/25/61 to raise funds for the building of the USS Arizona Memorial was held at Bloch Arena on the naval base.



Over the years after it was built, Elvis sometimes visited the memorial.
He was proud to be an American and to have had the opportunity to play such a vital role in the building of this monument to those who died in the bombing of Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941 at the start of World War II.

Elvis Aloha an Historical Event: On January 14, 1973, Elvis Presley made history as the first solo entertainer to hold a live concert broadcast internationally via satellite.
More than a billion people from more than 40 countries across Asia and Europe tuned in to watch "Aloha from Hawaii." On NPR's 'All Things Considered' host Jacki Lyden
talked to Elvis aficionados, including fans who witnessed the rock 'n' roll king when he took the crown to be a true worldwide phenomenon.
Dana Suzuki-Culbertson: The night I went to see Elvis, I went with my mother. I was just 17 at the time. And I remember sitting up, and the moment I saw him with my binoculars,
I was in such awe that I stopped and I was just staring at my mom, saying: Oh, my God. Oh, my God. And she told me: Stop looking at me and look at stage
and watch. When he first came out on stage, you know, they start off with these drums: boom, boom, boom, boom, boom. And then da-da-da, da-da-da, and then out
he comes, you know, "See See Rider."
You know, I was in my own world, swooning and wanting all that too. I just loved him.
Governor Neil Abercrombie: It was 12:30 a.m. when it started. The place was packed, about 6,000-plus people in our little arena here. And he was in his, you know,
his white cape, and he had his semi-karate moves. And he sang at least 20, 25 songs in an hour.
He was a phenomenon. And we're talking about it 40 years later. You're not going to have the Justin Bieber world satellite concert 40 years from now, you know,
or Beyonce or something like that. These are passing phenomenon. Presley was singular in that way. The word charisma was made for him."

- The Fortieth anniversary celebrations of the concert are planned from Memphis to Honolulu with a rebroadcast of the 1973 show. If you're lucky enough to get there,
you'll be joining Governor Abercrombie at the arena where it all took place on January 14th. You, too, can say what Elvis might say if he were there - "Aloha from Hawaii."
