- Costume replicates 1973 First Ever Live Performance Broadcast Via Satellite with Elvis Presley dressed in Aloha "American Eagle" jumpsuit originally designed by Bill Belew and seen by over One Billion viewers worldwide! and to this date is still the most watched broadcast by an individual entertainer in television history!
Aloha from Hawaii is a music concert that was headlined by Elvis Presley, and broadcast live via satellite around the world on January 14, 1973. It was watched by over one billion viewers worldwide. and remains the most watched broadcast by an individual entertainer in television history. The concert took pace at the International Convention Center Arena in Honolulu (now known as the Neal S. Blaisdell Arena) and aired in over 40 countries across Asia and Europe (who received the telecast the next day, also in primetime). Despite the satellite innovation, the United States did not air the concert until April 4, 1973 (the concert took place the same day as Super Bowl VII). The show was the most expensive entertainment special at the time, costing $2.5 million.
As the event was the first-ever such performance to be broadcast live via satellite, Presley taped a January 12 rehearsal concert as a fail-safe in case anything went wrong with the satellite, during the actual broadcast - however, nothing went wrong during the January 14th broadcast. For both shows, Presley was dressed in a white "American Eagle" jumpsuit designed by Bill Belew.
