Elba performed for nearly 500 people at the Maidstone club with his 12-hour long street party in 2019.

The club's events manager Ellis Foreshaw said the first event was an absolute sell-out and hopes tonight's will be just the same.

He said: "Having Idris Elba performing here again will be great for us.

"He’s an amazing character and an icon, so we’re super excited to have him back.

"We’re trying to make Kent a bit more of a destination spot rather than just for locals."

The DJ is not only behind the decks, but is also behind the scenes once again.

Yesterday, he announced on social media his return to filming BBC's Luther.

The prime-time TV drama star has also had huge success with Netflix film The Harder They Fall, which premiered last month on the streaming platform.

Having long been tipped to play 007 after Daniel Craig steps back, today it is being reported that the star is in talks to take on the role of a James Bond baddie in the next movie instead.

Idris Elba's performance at The Source Bar, in Rose Yard, will take place tonight (Saturday) from 8pm.
