The King Is Not Dead

In addition to an appearance at The Falls, El Vez has lined up a couple of intimate dates to spread his Elvis magic. Real name Robert Lopez, El Vez takes ‘The King’ and gives him a Latin-American music makeover.
From the presser: “If you thought the King was dead, you were wrong. He was just in Mexico, polishing his act, swapping peanut butter and banana pizzas for quesadillas and working on his cheap Mexican gags … When you see El Vez re-animating Elvis on stage like it’s some kind of reverse Day of the Dead, you’ll only have one thing to say: The King may be morte, but Viva El Rey. Viva El Vez.” The Karova, Ballarat – January 2. Best enjoyed with a shot of tequila.
