68 COMEBACK

Sam’s Town Live

8 PM

After his stint in the army and disappointing career as a star of the silver screen, Elvis was despondent and felt like the music industry had left him behind. 68 COMEBACK is the follow up to 56 THE BEGINNING, presenting the next chapter in Elvis’ life by taking the viewer on a journey from the King’s enlistment to his return to musical dominance in 1968. This concert stars two Images of the King World Champion Elvis entertainers: Dwight Icenhower and Ryan Pelton. In 2016, Graceland named Dwight the “Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist” while Ryan is the star of the Elvis inspired movie “The Identical.”  The show will be backed by the Change of Habit tribute band.  Doors open one hour prior to show time.

56 The Beginning
