Experience The 1968 Elvis Special On The Big Screen


In 1968 Elvis Presley appeared in a television special called Singer Presents…Elvis (now referred to as the '68 Come Back Special), to help re-launch his singing career after he took some time off music to focus on an acting career.

The television special attracted a lot of attention when it aired because it was Presley's first live performance in seven years. Audiences and critics reacted positively to the TV special. The programme climbed to the top of the ratings chart for that week and became the most watched show of that season. The King had successfully re-launched his singing career.
