Tim will be touring his production entitled Plastic Elvis to Buxton Opera House on November 5. The show was originally scheduled to visit the venue on May 21 but has been rearranged amid lockdown.

Backed by 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. Plastic Elvis will be joined by special guests John Archer as Big Buddy Holly and songwriting legend David Martin (who wrote four songs for the real Elvis).

Tim said: “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.”
