Roy and Elvis meet again

On Tuesday, September 24th, Dave Collison will be performing a small set of Roy Orbison songs courtesy of, and alongside, Lou ‘Elvis to the Stars’ Jordan at his regular spot at the Pomodoro restaurant in Knightsbridge.

Lou is an amazing, passionate Elvis tribute artist who has been performing for many years and many world famous celebrities. So, if you love Elvis or you love Roy or, like me, both of them, come along on Tuesday and enjoy two of the best tributes to two of the finest Rock ‘n’ Roll artists who ever lived.
