(CelebrityAccess) — Organizers marked the occasion of what would have been Elvis Presley’s 84th birthday by announcing the lineup for an upcoming “Elvis All-Star Tribute,” which is set to air on February 17th.

According to Variety, the lineup features an extensive roster of both new and established artists that includes Ed Sheeran, Post Malone, Shawn Mendes, Kelsea Ballerini, Keith Urban, John Fogerty and Dierks Bentley among numerous others.

The show is already in the can, having been recorded in front of an invite-only audience over two nights in October at Universal Soundstage, and featured artists performing Elvis hits in a production meant to invoke Presley’s famed 1968 comeback concert.

Ken Ehrlich served as producer for the show, with Don Was providing musical direction.

When it airs next month, the special will also include interviews with Priscilla Presley and Steve Binder, the director of the comeback concert, as well as an appearance from Lisa Marie Presley.

As a tie-in with the show, Sony Music Entertainment’s RCA/Legacy Recordings plans to release the “The Best of the ’68 Comeback Special” two days before the show airs. The new album is a ‘reader’s digest version’ of a previously released 7-CD set released last year that contains all of the recordings taped for the show.
