- Day by Day: What did Elvis Presley do on March 25, 1961
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.
