ELVIS: '68 Comeback Special - 50 Years On Starring Dean Z

Sat 10 Mar 2018
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 and All Shook Up including new material such as Memories and If I Can Dream.

Half a century on, Definitive Promotions are 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!

Dean Z is endorsed by ‘Elvis Presley Enterprises’ having won the Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest. He has been the recipient of the ‘Heart of The King’ award and was also awarded the ‘2017 Elvis Tribute Artist of the Year’ title. Dean is renowned as one of the best Elvis acts on the planet and travels the globe paying tribute to Elvis in the era of the 50's and 60's. Dean is a regular performer in the stage shows throughout the USA including 'Legends in Concert' and ‘Elvis Lives’. He also headlines many of the Elvis festivals seen around the world today.

In a two hour concert event, allow us to take you back to 1968 as we recreate the famous ’68 Comeback Special. A must see-to-believe concert for all Elvis fans and lovers of Rock ‘n’ Roll.
