While Elvis was performing "Suspicious Minds," he sings "I hope this suit don't tear up, baby," instead of the actual line, "Because I love you too much, baby." This is probably because it was around this time Elvis started to gain weight and his suit was most likely tight on him.
Over 5,500 people attended the show.
The double LP soundtrack album of Aloha from Hawaii was Elvis' last album to ever reach #1 on the charts.
The famous actor, Jack Lord, attended the concert, and Elvis introduced him to the crowd.
The show is probably most famous for Presley's performance of "An American Trilogy."
Although "Also Sprach Zarathustra" was the first song played at the concert, the first song Elvis actually sang was "C.C. Rider."
At the end of Elvis' second song, "Burning Love," a member of the audience places a lei around Elvis' neck.
At the end of the show, Elvis removed his cape and tossed it into the audience. It was caught by a man named Bruce Sprinks, a reporter of the Honolulu Advisor. The cape is currently on display at Graceland.
It cost approximately $25 million on preparations to make Elvis: Aloha From Hawaii possible.
Elvis, dressed in casual clothes, attended a soundcheck on the day before the show, January 13, 1973. The mayor of Honolulu also declared January 13 to be "Elvis Presley Day."
On a Press Conference on November 20, 1972, everyone putting the show together determined that the show would be a benefit for the Kui Lee Cancer Fund. Elvis and his manager, Colonel Tom Parker, started the benefit by donating a check for $1,000 for the fund.
The Aloha from Hawaii special was also edited into the Elvis Lives: The 25th Anniversary Concert 2007 television special.
For the rehearsal concert and the actual televised concert, Elvis was dressed in his famous white "American Eagle" jumpsuit, which was designed by Gene Doucette.
The opening for the show was "Also Sprach Zarathustra," which was the opening theme for 2001: A Space Odyssey.
