Lee Memphis King - Europe's most successful Elvis Presley - is appearing at Dunstable's Grove Theatre on May 5

It was retrieved a couple of weeks later after turning up on eBay. Locals will be glad to hear he doesn’t hold any grudges. Quite the opposite in fact – Lee thought Dunstable audiences were awesome.

The Welsh-born singer will be back at the Grove on May 5 with a brand new show – the Vegas Years, which has been hailed as ‘pure entertainment and pure Presley.’

Lee, 45, has been an Elvis fan ever since seeing the movie Roustabout as a young lad. He’s visited Graceland – the star’s home in Memphis Tennessee – several times and says it’s a surreal experience: “It almost feels as if he’s still there, that he’s just gone out for the day.”

He loves the whole cataolgue of Presley songs but his all-time favourite is Hurt.
