Festival of The King -  Aloha from Hawaii

SATURDAY – Festival of the King Presents: Global Serenade - Aloha from Hawaii

While the glitz and glamour of Las Vegas had embraced Elvis, the King harboured ambitions that transcended the neon lights of the Strip. He dreamt of serenading audiences across Europe, Japan, South America, and Canada. However, a shadow from Colonel Tom Parker's past posed a potential barrier, threatening to confine Elvis within the borders of the USA. But where there's a will, there's a way. The Colonel, ever the innovator, envisioned a groundbreaking solution: If Elvis couldn't go to the world, the world would come to Elvis.

The stage was set in Hawaii, and through the marvel of satellite technology, Elvis's concert would be broadcasted globally, reaching every corner of the planet. On January 14, 1973, this vision became a reality. An astounding one and a half billion people tuned in, making it an unparalleled musical event in history. The euphoria of this concert was immortalized with the release of an LP, capturing the magic for posterity.

Now, 51 years later, on Saturday, January 13, The Historic Gayety invites you to relive this monumental moment. Experience the "Aloha from Hawaii" concert in all its splendour, as we recreate the night when the King sang not just for an audience, but for the world.
