Noted as the “Artist of the Century”, Elvis has been known for making history through his ground breaking performances so Elvis: Signature Moments will deliver a chance to experience some of those incredible memories. With a celebration of the youthful vibrance of the 50’s, a look into the Vegas years, a charismatic glimpse of the historic 68 Comeback Special, and then we will climax the entire evening as we re-create the world famous “Aloha From Hawaii” Concert that was offered as the first ever satellite concert in 1973.
