In June 1972 Elvis Presley sold-out 4 straight concerts in 3 days at New York's Madison Square Garden. 80,000 tickets were sold in just two days and the New York Times described Presley as "Prince from Another Planet".
"Aloha from Hawaii" was broadcast live via satellite to over 40 countries around the world. The concert took place on January 14th, 1973 in Honolulu and, was until then, the most expensive TV production ever costing over $ 2.5 million. It is said that the concert was viewed via satellite by somewhere between 1 and 1.5 billion viewers.
Now Steven Pitman, one of the most sought after Elvis Presley Tribute Acts in Europe is introducing his brand new show production and has merged two of Presley's milestone performances into one unforgettable concert experience.
Along with his excellent band "The Celebrations", Steven gives a credible tribute to Presley's concert highlights - always with his own personal touch and without trying to be "the King".
Guests can expect an evening with beautiful songs from "Aloha From Hawaii" and "Live from Madison Square Garden" as well as some additional song surprises...
