"Elvis All-Star Tribute" Gets NBC Premiere Date; Marks Comeback Special 50th Anniversary
by Erik Pedersen
December 3, 2018

Fifty years ago today, NBC aired what would become known as the ’68 Comeback Special, which launched the black leather-jacketed Elvis Presley back into the national spotlight.

Now the network has set a premiere date for the newly titled "Elvis All-Star Tribute", which will feature music superstars re-creating the spectacle – even the staging – of that legendary night.

"The Voice‘s" Blake Shelton will host the show at 9 p.m. Sunday February 17. Musicians taking part in the tribute will be announced after New Year’s.

In addition to the musical performances, the two-hour special will showcase rare footage of Presley and interviews from those involved in the special, including Priscilla Presley and director Steve Binder.
