The shows were attended by more then 14,000 fans. one of the fans filmed parts of the concert in colour.
During the day, Elvis met with Press:
Speaking with a Southern slur and often punctuating his answers with ‘Sir’, Elvis freely admitted’, I’m pretty green when it comes to clothes. I don’t pay over $7 for a shirt and $10 for a pair of shoes… but I do plan to stock up on a Hawaiian outfit while I’m here’. Elvis wore a white knit sweater with a large rolled collar, a wine-colored sports coat and black slacks.
As for his traveling companions, mostly high school friends and disc jockeys, Elvis said, ‘I like to have my friends along… it gives me a little touch of home. Anyway, it’s more fun to see things together. I’ve got a waiting list… pretty long one… of friends who want to make trips with me. In fact I’ve heard from lots of so-called old friends from years ago who always say, ‘You remember me, don’t you?’ As for such nicknames as ‘Elvis the Pelvis’, Elvis said ‘There’s nothing I can do about it, but it sounds like little kids trying to find something to rhyme with Elvis’. He said, ‘I would eventually like to be a good actor. I haven’t had time up to now, but I would like to study for it’. Asked why he didn’t use the plane, he said, ‘I don’t like airplanes. I’m scared stiff of them. In fact, we could’ve been on the one missing now’. The Jordanaires and his band arrived by plane later the same day.
The other acts were: Ray Tankaka, Howard Hardin, Sterling Mossman, Kuai Barrett, Phyllis Brooks, Queens Men and The Jordanaires

Elvis sang, ‘Don’t Be Cruel’, ‘That’s When Your Heartaches Begin’, and many more, but the screams drowned out his voice a great portion of the time. Elvis had only to say, ‘Thank you very much’, and the audience would come apart. He’d scratch his nose… another scream. He’d laugh… another scream. At times, Elvis seemed to deliberately drop his arm or wiggle his shoulder just to hear his fans react. He performed for about forty minutes. Surprisingly, he spent more time at the piano than he did with his guitar. As he sang the closing number, ‘Hound Dog’, he sat down on the edge of the stage. .. and then jumped down, off the stage, onto the grass section in front of the stage. He rolled on the grass and moaned out the words to, ‘Hound Dog’. He kissed a girl across the barricade set up to keep his audience away from the stage, grabbed a coconut hat and paraded with it on his head. After he finished the song, he stepped into a waiting car and sped out of sight.
