MORE ABOUT THIS SPECIAL EVENT
Elvis Presley’s legendary “’68 Comeback Special,” directed and produced by Steve Binder, will hit the big screen this August in celebration of its 50th anniversary. This special cinema event will take place across Ireland for one night only 16th August with encore screenings at selected sites. Screenings will include the legendary television special 90 min concert, plus an exclusive look at the making of the special, featuring a walkthrough of the NBC soundstage with insights from Binder and others influenced by Presley, his music and this iconic event. This brand-new content is produced by Spencer Proffer, CEO of Meteor 17, and ABG’s Marc Rosen, SVP of Entertainment.

Originally airing on December 3, 1968, the “’68 Comeback Special” concert was Elvis Presley’s first live television performance in seven years, which captured him playing with a full band in front of an intimate audience of diehard fans. As part of the special, Presley also pioneered the “Unplugged” performance style with an exclusive acoustic set. The soundtrack album went Top 10 following the special airing, shooting Presley back to the top of the singles charts months later with “In the Ghetto” and later in 1969, his first number one hit in seven years with “Suspicious Minds.”

CinEvents have expressed their delight in the release of this title “To be able to show this seminal performance on the big screen for the first time is a real honour. We are extremely pleased and very excited to be showcasing this iconic event across Europe from 16th August.”
