Press conference, September 4, 1972

In the morning, there was a press conference at the Las Vegas Hilton hotel to announce the upcoming worldwide telecast of an Elvis concert in Honolulu on the island of Oahu, Hawaii.

The announcement was made by the president of RCA Records, Mr. Rocco Laginestra.

Elvis was also present and told the press he hoped he wouldn't let his fans down.

Mr. Laginestra told the press the upcoming tv-program would reach the largest audience in the history of television.

The concert would be broadcast to Southeast Asia via satellite.
In Europe the concert would be seen in 28 countries, the day after the concert.

The U.S.A. (mainland) would not see the program before April 1973.
