ALOHA FROM HAWAII PRESS CONFERENCE

The Las Vegas Hilton Hotel, 3000 Paradise Road, Las Vegas, Nevada.

In between shows, Elvis was present at a press conference with both the Colonel as well as the RCA president, Rocco

Laginestra. There was the announcement of the Aloha from Hawaii satellite show, on January 14th, next year. Elvis left all the official business to the Colonel and the only thing he said was: "It's my favorite past of the business, a live concert." and that it was very hard to comprehend the idea of doing a live show via satellite.
