PostSubject: 'Elvis' ready to have king all Sheik up   Sun Jun 15, 2008 8:59 am

EUROPE'S number one Elvis impersonator Rob Kingsley is to give a command performance for a real-life King.

The 39-year-old former soldier and bus driver, who is originally from Prestonpans, Midlothian, will reportedly don his sequined jumpsuit for a special gig for King Sheik Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa, who runs the oil state of Bahrain, and his family and friends at a function in the Gulf state.

"It will be such an honour to perform the King's songs in front of a real King," said Robert.

"Gigs don't come much more prestigious than this. The crowd for the Bahrain gig might be small, but it will be the most exalted company I've ever been in."

Before becoming a full-time tribute act he was in the Army for eight years. After leaving the Army, he became a bus driver, and in 1994, saved a blind man's life when he smashed his bus into an out-of-control car careering towards him.

Robert, who changed his name from Ainslie to Kingsley to be more like his idol is playing to specials shows at the Brunton Theatre, Musselburgh in August.

Rob is recognised as one of the top Elvis tribute artists in Europe, winning first place at this year's Elvis Tribute 2008 European Championships.
