TIM VINE IS PLASTIC ELVIS is heading to Doncaster!
A Unique Tribute to a Legend
This is it, people. The moment has arrived.
Following a one-off, sell-out show at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2019, Tim Vine is bringing Plastic Elvis to your town!
Backed by an amazing five-piece, The High Noon Band, Plastic Elvis will shake, smoulder, and try to control his hair. In the end, heâ€™ll break your heart as he belts out some of the Kingâ€™s greatest hits. With special guests John Archer as Big Buddy Holly, and songwriting legend David Martin (who wrote four songs for the real Elvis). Tim says: â€œThis isnâ€™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 1972â€™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. Itâ€™s time to go public.â€
Warning: this show may contain moves that even Plastic Elvis himself isnâ€™t expecting.
“His charisma stunned me” â€“ Plastic Elvis fan
