Idris Elba set out to prove that he’s more than just the Sexiest Man Alive and an award-winning actor.
On Saturday night, the 46-year-old British heartthrob kicked off the first weekend of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in Indio, California, with a DJ set that impressed even his most skeptical fans. Elba had the support of his daughter, 17-year-old Isan, who shared photos with her dad and a friend at Coachella on Instagram prior to his performance.
Elba himself commented on the photo, writing, “Turn up Dad.”
Elba also shared a shirtless selfie on Instagram prior to his performance, clearly excited.
“You ready @coachella ?????? I am!!!!!” he wrote. “Game face 👊🏾👊🏾🤪🤪 let’s get it.”
There was a long line to get into Elba’s set, but he delivered, confidently spinning tunes while wearing a patterned shirt. Elba’s fiancee, Sabrina Dhowre, was also at his performance to support him, proudly sharing video from the show on her Instagram Stories.
