Nearly a year after Britney Spears adopted Elvis Presley’s wardrobe and lip curl for her HBO live concert special last fall, she’s paying homage to the King once again.
Along with Bono, No Doubt, Tom Petty, Sheryl Crow and Dave Matthews, Spears is one of the artists slated to appear on the upcoming NBC special “Elvis Lives.”
The hour-long show, set to air in late November or December, will celebrate Presley’s legacy with performances of classic songs culled from his current chart-topping compilation, Elvis 30 #1 Hits. Footage of contemporary acts updating and reflecting upon his classic works will be interspersed with Presley himself, with clips of his performances and interviews, as well as international coverage commemorating the 25th anniversary of his death.
Also scheduled to appear are Chuck D, Denis Leary, Steven Tyler, Dennis Hopper and Dale Earnhardt Jr. More acts and an air date and time remain to be announced.
