Starring Dean Z as Elvis Presley in The ’68 Comeback Special – the 50th anniversary of Elvis's return to the TV screen.
In June of 1968, Elvis Presley had returned to the Television screen once again after more than seven years in Hollywood. In an NBC Christmas special, Elvis performed live in front of an audience for the first time since 1961. This iconic television event later became known as the ’68 comeback special and would reignite Elvis’s career on the world stage.
This concert was particularly important in Elvis’ career as it was his breakaway from the Hollywood movies which labelled him as a ‘sex symbol’ as opposed to a serious actor. Elvis dedicated this staged event to mark not only his re-emergence into the music and live performance scene, but as an opportunity to re-invent himself as an entertainer. He performed songs from an era that labelled him the ‘King of Rock’ such as Heartbreak hotel/ hound Dog/ all shook up and including new material such as Memories and If I can Dream.
Half a century on, Definitive Promotions is proud to present…The ’68 Comeback Special – the 50th anniversary tour starring world renowned Dean Z. In March of 2018, Dean returns to Australia for his first official extended tour and will be backed by the incredible Elvis In Concert Band!
