On Elvis’s first visit to Hawai‘i in 1957, fans filled Honolulu Stadium for not one but 2 concert performances. That was the beginning of Elvis’s enduring relationship with Hawai‘i, which included 2 additional benefit concerts, three films and several vacation stays. For Elvis fans and those interested in Hawai‘i’s music history, Aloha Elvis describes Elvis’s love affair with the island, and includes over 100 photographs of Elvis (some never before published) and the people and places he encountered in Hawai‘i.
