Elvis All Star Tribute Sunday 2/17 on NBC

To commemorate the 50th year of the 1968 Elvis come-back special, an all star group of performers gathered last fall to tape their tribute to "The King of Rock 'n' Roll" which will be aired Sunday, 2/17 on NBC. They are using a set modeled on the one that Elvis used and many of those songs are included on the program. Details on set list and performers here . . .

It's quite the list of artists, older to younger to in between. But I really look forward to seeing Mac Davis singing Memories, a song that he co-wrote. ( He also wrote In the Ghetto that was a really big hit for Elvis in 1969, 50 years ago! )

I had to choose Victoria and Madam Secretary over the Elvis tribute, but saw clips on this morning's news. Looks like it was a good show! N.

@catwoman500  - I know what you mean, all of the good stuff is always on Sunday evening. I have to DVR everything that we want to see since we don't stay up late either. But you can still watch it online.

 

The show is available on NBC website: https://www.nbc.com/elvis-all-star-tribute/video/elvis-allstar-tribute/3904579

 

It was a really good show and some outstanding artists and performances. You won't want to miss the gospel songs performed near the end by Carrie Underwood and Yolanda Adams. There are also clips on YT.

@MaVolta ...Yes, Sunday nights are so frustrating! I'll usually go with PBS since I can't get those shows On Demand and hate to sit here at the computer to watch a show. I will keep the Elvis show in mind and try to watch that On Demand when I get some extra time. Glad you enjoyed it! N.

Hey N catwoman FYI 

Here in NC -so not sure about your PBS - if you become a monthly/committed donor to PBS NC for as little as $5 month (at least $60 year) you receive a monthly guide of all shows on all PBS channels PLUS your given info to access PBS On Demand so that you can watch anything at your convenience.... like I said not aware where you live but might be worth checking out... Hope this works for you. 

 

@MaVolta 

Indeed a great Elvis tribute show I'm grateful recorded and have saved to rewatch anytime. 

 

& to you both Yes Sundays are tough so many great shows...I too love "Madam Secretary" & also cause that's when Hallmark Mysteries Channel shows its Mystery movies but thank goodness they replay those again usually within a week so can record them. 

Have a beautiful weekend,

Ginger  : ) 

🙂 Smile & the world Smiles with you 😉 Pass one on....its free
