Clearly at the top of his game, Elvis delivered a 24-song show that pulled songs from every phase of his career. When “Aloha From Hawaii via Satellite” was aired in the U.S. on April 4th, the Nielsen ratings had the show in 33.8% of homes and reaching 51% of those watching television. The double-LP immediately vaulted up the charts, taking the #1 spot in Billboard’s May 1973 issue. It stayed on the chart for 52 weeks, and was certified 5X Platinum by the RIAA.
