Elvis: Aloha from Hawaii

He still had it.

Not as skinny as in his prime, buried under the weight of the capes and the bling, late-career Elvis Presley could still dominate a stage.

Four years before his death, he headed to Hawaii and unleashed a performance which stands with his best.

The hips might not have gyrated the way they did when he was a young’un, but the voice didn’t fail him.

From See See Rider to Suspicious Minds to Can’t Help Falling in Love, the songs soared – a legend reaching down deep to find his inner raging tiger one last time.
