The show's promoters initially wanted the concert in Tokyo but Colonel Tom Parker,Elvis' longtime manager,allegedly could not leave the US. A Dutch national,it's been said that Parker was in the US illegally. Elvis never performed outside North America as a result. See more »

The Lightyear DVD is missing three songs, "Johnny B. Goode", "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry" and "I Can't Stop Loving You". The songs were up for renewal at the time of release and could not be included. The songs are restored on later releases. See more »
On Sunday morning, January 14, 1973 a historic concert by Elvis Presley was beamed around the world via satellite. In excess of one billion people watched Elvis play to standing room only at the Honolulu International Center in Hawaii. The special engagement was to raise money for the Kui Lee Cancer Fund. A goal of 25 thousand dollars collected was said to be matched and doubled.
Elvis was in peak form musically and physically. He was thin and drop dead gorgeous. His voice was very powerful as he belted out 23 songs, highlighted by 'American Trilogy' and the Kui Lee song that Elvis originally recorded in 1966, 'I'll Remember You'. A top selling soundtrack of the concert was released and is also considered historic.
This was a milestone in the unequaled career of THE KING!
