What was your favorite part of NBC's recent Elvis All Star Tribute? John Fogerty singing Jailhouse Rock? Darius Racker singing One Night? Adam Lambert singing Blue Suede shoes?
The Official Elvis Presley Fan Club of Qatar gathered last night enjoying two things - the wonderful Qatari weather and the wonderful special released by NBC, with delicious fresh burgers from @unosqatar ............ If you haven't seen it yet, it celebrates one of the greatest musical events in television history, a look back at the network's iconic 1968 special that put Elvis Presley back on the map. NBC’s tribute celebration special featured an all-star group of music superstars who payed tribute to Elvis, recreating the spectacle - even the staging - of that legendary night.
Elvis' December 3, 1968 special was 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. ...... We all know of course that the artists featured in this special were not the only ones in music influenced by Elvis. Right from Tom Jones to John Mayer and dare we say even Justin Bieber, we believe strongly that the concept of a musical superstar was created by Elvis. He changed the course of music over his lifetime and he will continue to have a lasting effect on music for decades to come!
