The event is said to be documenting a historic moment: Elvis’ 1968 Comeback Special. This special event has recently celebrated its 50-year anniversary.

The show is considered a crucial point in Presley’s career. It was his first live performance in seven years and helped rekindle  his music career after he had taken a break from it to pursue his acting career. The original special aired the 3rd of December 1968 and saw the King performing many of his iconic songs including “Can’t Help Falling in Love,” “Love Me Tender,” “Hound Dog,” and “Jailhouse Rock.”
