News Highlights, Tim Vine Hits The Road With A Twist And Look Ooh’s back!
King of the one liners is hitting the road on a tour of a different kind. He’s going on the road with his tribute to the King of Rock and Roll, as Plastic Elvis
The comedian has announced 20 English and Welsh dates for the show in May and June – topped off with a December date at the Apollo in Hammersmith, West London.
Vine said: ‘This isn’t a stand-up show, but a concert dedicated to my favourite performer.
‘When I was 11 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.”
The comic will be backed by the five-piece High Noon Band and joined by guests including Britain’s Got Talent magician John Archer as Big Buddy Holly, and songwriter David Martin, who penned four tracks for the real Elvis.
Vine performed a one-off version of the show at the Edinburgh Fringe last year and promoters warn: ‘This show may contain moves that even Plastic Elvis himself isn’t expecting.’
