One Night of Elvis Starring Lee Memphis King (03/05/13) - Absolutely fabulous
Just back from seeing Lee Memphis King at the Churchill Theatre Bromley 3rd May 2013. I wasnt expecting much but being an Elvis fan thought why not go. He is quite extraordinary: there cannot be better. The voice is uncanny and the stage persona when singing is so like Elvis that from our seats it WAS HIM. I could only get two tickets as the event was sold out so I took my 15 year old daughter who loved every minute. Next time we shall all go. His patter, in his native Scots, between songs is very amusing and down to earth but when he sings he is magical. Obviously also hes a very nice guy. We shall see him again beyond a shadow of a doubt. 5 stars can never do him justice. Many thanks indeed for a fabulous nights entertainment.
