KUALA LUMPUR, 21 August 2019 – Hard Rock Cafe Chairman, Tan Sri Syed Yusof Syed Nasir recently performed Elvis Presley songs to a packed Hard Rock Cafe Kuala Lumpur, paying tribute to the legendary King of Rock and Roll on the anniversary of his death.
“Elvis Presley is the single most significant figure in rock and roll history where he completely revolutionised music and his influence changed the entertainment industry forever and people quickly fell in love with his amazing voice and pelvic thrusting hips,” said Tan Sri Syed Yusof, better known as Jojo by his friends.
Elvis set in motion a style of music that dominated the world for the rest of the century. It was the beginning of youth culture, the breakdown of inhibition and ended up creating a generation that was able to have the freedom of expression forever changing music and left a lasting legacy, which positively influenced the world.
Tan Sri Syed Yusof rocked the stage in a stylish black suit complete with a golden eagle print, high collar and dark glasses, supported by Dato’ Suraj Singh, a well known Elvis impersonator, replete with a high-collared coat, bell bottoms an almost identical voice to the King.
