Another great concert done by the king!
5 August 2002 | by (Palos Park, IL USA) – See all my reviews

If you own this concert on video or dvd, you'll see Elvis Presley coming out onto the stage. And you will see Elvis Presley singing the songs in the order by what it says on the box. And you see Elvis Presley being backed by a lot of people which are more bands than solo people. On Sunday Morning January 14, 1973 at 12:30 (Hawaii time) Elvis Presley performs this concert at Honolulu International Convention Center. Joining Elvis Presley on Stage are James Burton, Charlie Hodge, Jerry Scheff, J.D Sumner, Ronnie Tutt, Kathy Westmoreland, and John Wilkinson. And the bands are The Sweet Inspirations, JD. Sumner and the Stamps, and The Joe Guercia Orchestra. This concert was produced and directed by Marty Pasetta. Elvis and his group was to rise $25,000.00 and they raised $75,000.00. No wonder why there are 5,500 people in attendance. The songs are C.C. Rider, Burnin' Love, Something, You Gave Me a Mountain, Early Morning Rain, Streamroller Bules, My Way, Love Me, Johnny B Goode, It's Over, Blue Suede Shoes, I'm So Lonesome I could Cry, I Can't Stop Loving You, Hound Dog, Blue Hawaii, What Now My Love, Fever, Welcome to My World, Suspicious Minds, I'll Remember You, Hawaiian Wedding Song, Long Tall Sally, Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On, Ku Ku I Po, Dixie, Glory Glory Hallelujah, Hush Little Baby, Big Hunk of Love and Can't Help in Love. This is a great concert to watch, and If you like this check out Elvis 68 Comeback Special. And suppose people who were lucky enough to be at this concert, and still alive today, they might even enjoy this concert again on video and dvd, if if they didn't have a good view of Elvis Presley. 10/10
