It’s 1968 – the major musical event of the year was the first live TV special for Elvis Presley, drawing phenomenal ratings and almost half of the viewing audience. This event re-established Elvis as the major entertainment star of the decade, and twelve months later Elvis stars at the International Hotel in Vegas, performing live for the first time in seven years, securing his place in history as the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll.

Direct from the USA, award-winning tribute artist and actor Steve Michaels will star as ‘The King’. Steve has played alongside some of Elvis Presley’s iconic band mates including the legendary drummer DJ Fontana and bassist Jerry Scheff.

This is Elvis recreates all the drama leading up to the comeback as well as staging the monumental concert. It also includes Elvis’s greatest hits including Trouble, Heartbreak Hotel, Blue Suede Shoes, Hound Dog, Love Me Tender, All Shook Up, Jailhouse Rock, One Night, It’s Now or Never and more.
