A man is attempting to set a world record for the number of live Elvis Presley tribute performances achieved by one person in a single day.

Andy Woodward, an Elvis tribute artist, will perform at some of London’s most famous landmarks on the 30th anniversary of the King’s death.

The 35-year-old, from Swansea, south Wales, is attempting to achieve 30 live Elvis tribute performances at sites such as the famous Abbey Road crossing, the London Eye and the High Court on Thursday.

Woodward, who works for the driving registration body the DVLA, was crowned Best Welsh Elvis at this year’s Porthcawl Elvis Festival in Wales.

Festival spokesman Peter Phillips said: "It’s going to be a marathon, 30 performances to mark 30 years since Elvis’s death, but it’s all in a good cause because he’s representing the biggest European Elvis festival."
