Live 1969, a brand new Elvis Presley 11CD box set that marks the 50th anniversary of his performances at the International Hotel in Las Vegas, was released on Friday.

The 1969 Vegas engagements, 57 sold-out shows, marked Elvis’ first return to the live stage in eight years.

Want to get your hands on that collection? Shop, shop, shop. It’s not cheap, but there are places you can get a much better price.

OK, here’s a sample.

Las Vegas’s aura of classic showmanship stood in stark contrast to the counterculture of the 1960s. Presley’s show helped rebrand the city as a new kind of entertainment hub.
