By Elvis Australia
January 14, 2013 - 9:22:33 PM
January 14, 2013 is the 40th anniversary of perhaps Elvis Presley's greatest triumph : Elvis made television and entertainment history on this date with his
Elvis: Aloha From Hawaii Via Satellite concert special. The show was performed at the Honolulu International Center Arena on January 14, 1973 at 12:30 AM Hawaiian time. The concert was beamed live via Globecam Satellite to Australia, South Korea, Japan, Thailand, the Philippines, South Vietnam and other countries, and was seen on a delayed basis in approximately thirty European countries. The first American airing was April 4, 1973 on NBC-TV.

Although Elvis Presley is perhaps one of the world's greatest music legends, he proceeds to slay an audience with more guts and more soul and more intensity vocally than any performer alive.
His shows are not only a production, but a musical 'happening'. And this live recording, which offers eight tunes previously unrecorded by Elvis, is not only a historical event because of the satellite broadcast and the U.S. TV special of the Hawaiian performance, but because Elvis, a focus point in the origin of rock, is perhaps back, cooking again like he seldom has in the past several years.
