This is it, people. The moment has arrived… Following a one-off, sell-out show at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe last summer, Tim Vine is bringing Plastic Elvis to a town near you.
Backed by the amazing ‘The High Noon Band’, Plastic Elvis will shake, smoulder, and try to control his hair. In the end, he’ll break your heart as he belts out some of the King’s greatest hits; and with special guests John Archer as Big Buddy Holly, and songwriting legend David Martin (who wrote four songs for the real Elvis). Tim says: “This isn’t a stand up show, but a concert dedicated to my favourite performer. When I was eleven years old, I would stand in front of my bedroom mirror and mime to the whole of 1972’s Elvis: As Recorded at Madison Square Garden album. This is a tribute act that is forty years in the making. Well, the waiting is over. It’s time to go public.”
Warning: this show may contain moves that even Plastic Elvis himself isn’t expecting.
Performance: Saturday 23 May, The Hawth, Crawley. Tickets: Available from The Hawth Box Office: 01293 553636 and online: www.hawth.co.uk
