Celebrating one of the greatest musical events in television history, NBC honors a true legend when it airs “Elvis All-Star Tribute,” a look back at the network’s iconic 1968 special that put Elvis Presley back on the map. From Ken Ehrlich, veteran executive producer of the Grammy Awards and a multi-Emmy Award nominee, the two-hour special will feature an all-star group of music superstars who will pay tribute to Elvis, recreating the spectacle – even the staging – of that legendary night. Elvis’ December 3, 1968 special was his first live television performance since 1961 and a monumental television event. Dressed in a black leather jumpsuit and playing with a full band in front of an intimate audience, the telecast was hugely popular and was, in fact, the No. 1-rated show on NBC that season. In addition to musical performances, the special will showcase rare Elvis footage, outtakes and interviews from those involved in the special, including Director Steve Binder. Whether you’re a lifelong fan or just getting to know Elvis, this is an event not to be missed. “Elvis All-Star Tribute” is executive produced by Ken Ehrlich and produced by Ken Ehrlich Productions.
9pm Monday on Nine.
