“This cinema event showcases Elvis as both a legendary performer and a charming, charismatic presence behind the scenes,” said Meteor 17 CEO Spencer Proffer. “We are excited to bring together his many fans in cinemas across the world to celebrate his lasting impact with never-before-seen moments and performances.”
The “Elvis ’68 Comeback Special” was a major milestone in Elvis Presley’s storied career, marking his first live television performance in seven years and pioneering the “unplugged” performance style with an acoustic set. “Elvis Unleashed” captures the spontaneous moments and stories behind the legendary special, and sheds new light on Elvis as a cultural icon.
After the success of the ’68 Comeback special last August we are thrilled to bring Elvis back to the big screen this year for a new perspective on this iconic stage in his career. Joe Evea, CEO, CinEvents.
