Elvis flew to Honolulu, where he arrived at 12.15 p.m. with country comedian Minnie Pearl. After watching the way which Elvis was mobbed, she told him: "those women could kill you", but Elvis assured her: " they're not going to hurt me". Later at 3.30 there was a press conference in the Carousel Room at the Hawaiian Village Hotel.
Elvis performed at the Bloch Arena, Honolulu, and the show raised over $62,000 toward a memorial building for the USS Arizona sailors.
