Elvis Presley statue erected in Hawaii

Honolulu remembers 'The King'

A statue of Elvis Presley is to be erected in Hawaii.

A life-size bronze statue is being put up to mark the star’s landmark 1973 concert in Honolulu, ’Aloha From Hawaii’.

The show was one of the first concerts to be broadcast globally via satellite.

Speaking about the statue Mayor Mufi Hannemann said: “Elvis remains an idol and a hero to so many of us. Hawaii considers him an adopted son.”

The statue is set to be unveiled in July at the site of the Honolulu concert, reports the BBC.
