Elvis fans from about the world gathered in Hawaii for a unique opportunity to follow in the king’s footsteps and spend time exploring Elvis’ Hawaii. Photos and video are now available from the 40th Anniversary Celebration of "Aloha from Hawaii."

On the evening of January 14, 2013, "Aloha from Hawaii" returned to the same place for a one-night only enhanced screening celebrating the concert seen by over a billion people worldwide. The anniversary screening featured re-mastered video projected on multiple screens recreating the thrill of being there 40 years ago to the day. Elvis fans packed the Neal Blaisdell Center, the same venue where 40 years earlier, Elvis took the stage for the concert that became the most watched broadcast by an individual entertainer in television history. In honor of the king's groundbreaking performances in 1973, Hawaii Governor Neil Abercrombie declared January 14, 2013, as "Elvis, Aloha from Hawai'i via Satellite Day."

Fans also enjoyed panel discussions and special performances from guests such as famous Hawaiian DJ Tom Moffatt, former members of J. D. Sumner and The Stamps Quartet, Elvis' personal hairstylist Larry Gellar and Elvis’ musical conductor and a key member of the “Aloha from Hawaii” musical production team, Joe Guercio.
