Cabaret performer Hans the German comes to Port Lincoln

Accordion player, singer and entertainer 'Hans the German' is coming to Port Lincoln in December as part of his first Australia-wide tour.

Also known as Adelaide-man Matthew Gilbertson, his act rose to fame when he appeared on America's Got Talent in 2018.

Mr Gilbertson said while he has performed in Adelaide for years, he was keen to get out to some of the regional centres while on tour.

"I've never been to Port Lincoln, it's somewhere I've always wanted to go...so here I come," he said.

When Mr Gilbertson performs he dons the Hans persona, puts on glittery outfits, performs songs with and without his accordion, tap dances and throws in some humour too.

"It's like a variety show but I'm doing all the acts," he said.

"I've been doing this so long, the line, I don't know where it starts and where it ends," he said of his transformation into Hans.

"There are so many costume changes.

"Like Beyoncé all my costumes are made by my mother.

"(The performance) is very over the top, camp and flamboyant - so I need the costumes to match."

Hans: Like a German will be coming to the Nautilus Arts Centre on December 1.
