From one of our visitors we received two posstings from a Chris Isaak messageboard on the new Elvis TV special. It gives a first idea of what to expect.
Chris Isaak hosts this intimate look at Elvis and his remarkable impact on our world, yesterday and today. This tribute to Elvis - who in 2002 had both a #1 album and #1 single - includes performances by No Doubt, U2, Norah Jones and Dave Matthews, plus commentary from athletes, actors, musicians, politicians and others.
The first posting one is a request to Chris Isaak fans to be in the audience for this special, the second one is a description of one fan's experience. Both postings give an idea of the set-upof the special.

"It was a great performance. They made a replica of the stage that Elvis used during the "68 Comeback Special". The crew hand picked about 40 people to sit on the stage on these little steps. I was one of those lucky people. Chris and the band came out and jammed on a few songs "Judy", and "It Wouldn't be the Same Without You". They sounded great.
Then Leann came out and the crew said that they were ready to tape. They did a duet of "(You're the) Devil In Disguise" It sounded amazing. They did about 7 takes, each take was getting better and better. During takes Chris was flirting with Leann and making funny comments (as he always does). and they would jam on other Elvis tunes, such as "One Night". It was a great performance. Hershel sounded great. He has the most amazing tone.
That's it. It lasted about a good hour, they thanked the crowd and left. It'll be on Thanksgiving night at 10pm on NBC. Nobody should miss this performance.
