The Forerunner!

The forerunner to the most historical concert ever performed by a single artist - "Elvis: Aloha from Hawaii Rehearsal Concert" was performed two days prior to the actual satellite telecast that was beamed to over 30 different countries on January 14th, 1973.

This concert was performed at 8:30pm on January 12th, 1973 at the Honolulu International Center Arena, and was performed as a dress-rehearsal in case anything went wrong with the transmission of the concert on the 14th.

A lot of fans prefer this actual show stating that Elvis is a lot more 'loose' and is in better vocal shape than the concert 2 days later. Elvis drops a few numbers from the official set-list but it certainly doesn't suffer for it. The show still has it's fair share of adrenalin and excitement through Elvis' dramatic arrangements of such classics as "You Gave Me A Mountain", "Steamroller Blues" and "An American Trilogy". Some fans claim that his performance of the latter song is the best version ever.

The Aloha Rehearsal concert is part of the deluxe 2-disc DVD set of "Aloha from Hawaii" and is a welcome addition of a concert that is very rarely viewed these days.

So, whether you watch the telecast show from the 14th or the rehearsal show from the 12th either way you won't really be disappointed.

Long Live 'THE KING'!
