(Doug Weich)

Rhumbelow Theatre at Tina’s Hotel in Kloof welcomes audiences to Las Vegas, where Elvis has definitely not left the building and still reigns supreme as the King of rock n’ roll in the entertainment capital.

Elvis – Burning Love runs at Tina’s from December 4 to 8 and features Doug Weich as Elvis Presley.

Based in Ballito, KZN, Doug Weich realized his calling to be an ETA (Elvis Tribute Artist) from a very young age. Climbing through the ranks, he has certainly cemented his place as one of the top ETAs in South Africa. With his voice, moves, rhinestone-studded jumpsuits and charisma, his shows are a must see.

The show gives a glimpse of what it was like to watch the King of Rock n’ Roll in Las Vegas when he made his return to live performances, starting from his debut in 1969 up until the late 1970’s.

Burning Love is a show with all the glitz and glamour and is packed with timeless classic hits of yesteryear that will keep the audience thoroughly entertained for the full 90-minute performance.
