Elvis Spotted in Hawaii

Posted on Sat, Jul 28, 2007 at 4:00 AM

"His hair is slicked back, vest plastered on, microphone tilted toward his lips and flared pants draped to the floor."

On Thursday, a bronze statue of Elvis was unveiled in Honolulu. The statue was commissioned by TV Land to commemorate the 30th anniversary of Elvis' death. The statue shows Elvis as he was during the 1973 concert "Aloha from Hawaii," the first to be broadcast in satellite.

"It's about time. Elvis gave so much to Hawaii," said impersonator Jonathon Vonbrana, who had carefully sculpted black hair and wore dark sunglasses. "It's excellent. A lot of the statues don't even look like him."
