Re: Look Now: new album announced!

Not everyone had a bad Amazon experience. My copy turned up right on time Friday as promised. First impressions? More Painted From Memory than Imperial Bedroom, but thankfully not exactly like either (they are two of my favourites, but we never want same again from our man, do we?). At times, it fe...

Re: Elvis Costello cancels tour after surgery to remove 'aggressive' tumour

The S*N tweeted an article to which Elvis replied "Typical “S*N” laziness. People who can’t write for people who can’t think. Don’t need your sympathy. Tell that to the 96 @elviscostello" I presume Elvis's issue is that said rag has headlined the story in a way that suggests Elvis is 'bat...

Not wanting to get to ahead of things, but I hope there is a contingency plan should a clash with an important football match arise. Are England due to play anyone that night f they get that far?

Re: Elvis plays Manchester Castlefields 2018

I've seen a few things at the Castlefield Bowl and I think it's not a bad outdoor venue and doesn't feel like it has an 8,000 capacity. Sound has been good, easy to see the stage, plenty of good food and drink places nearby.

No comfy seats though!

Re: Elvis & The Imposters play Liverpool , July 11 2016

Well that was rather wonderful. I was slightly worried that it might end up as a 'Detour with band' night, but no, definitely no. [Don't get me wrong I loved the Detour shows] Sound was a bit echoey from where I was to start but hit the spot from 'Flutter and Wow' onward - in fact a lot of the eveni...

Absolutely wonderful, brings a smile to my face hearing these tracks and not understanding a word of them.

What are Elvis's favourite venues?

My Elvis watching over the years has usually been when he plays Liverpool or Manchester. I was at the recent (Manchester) Bridgewater Hall gig, somewhere he has played some excellent gigs before (though I must admit the John Harle in 1996 one was er, difficult!). I think one of the factors in him pl...

Wonderful, marvellous, "The Ken Dodd of Manchester" someone said behind me (which was in the direction of Bradwellboy - good call on 3 Sons by the way) as he started yet another song. It felt like it could go on forever with great surprises (Dr Luther's Assistant I KNOW!!). That big yellow...

Very enjoyable. A 90 minutes that has seen fit to be watched again several times for me. Of course there were things missed out, you can't please all the people... But it was so good to see something that didn't just lazily concentrate on 77-82. Someone up thread remarked about it helped 'get Elvis'...

Was a little strange, it didn't quite get going for me until 'Tokyo Storm Warning' and then we were off! Plenty of highlights, loved 'Sleep of the Just' and 'She'.
