Elvis in Hawaii, January 1973, any ideas or info?
Like we all know so very well, Elvis performed the January 12th rehearsal show, and of course on the 14th the great event.
We all know the familiar chopper arrival, and the concert footage. And even some footage from Japanese tv, both the arrival and some rare footage from setting up the stage with a snippet of James Burton. That can be found on You Tube.
What I was wondering is, when did Elvis arrive on Hawaii in reality. That chopper arrival is cool, but not the truth.
And what did he do on the 13th? And the time remaining before his arrival on Hawaii which probably was not on the 12th.
See my point? What do we know about this period?

Elvis arrives in Hawaii,and greets fans January 9, 1973.
January 9, 1973 - a chartered Boeing 747 landed at Honolulu Airport on the island of Oahu. When Elvis Presley disembarked from the plane it was to prepare himself to be the centerpiece of a historic occasion, the first artist to hold a concert which was to be directly transmitted to over 40 countries by satellite.
