Looks like just festivals this year. Unless a London date suddenly appears I think Manchester will be my only date this year.

I would like to say for the record that the algorithms on my Amazon account for Justin Timberlake were purely of my daughter's making *cough* :lol: As it's our 15th wedding anniversary on 14th June, I thought about getting a pair of tickets for me and Mrs VG but then thought I'd like to see future ...

Re: Pump It Up: Ford advert

I am with you Neil, i know there was a big discussion on line about him selling out but i cant think of the last time i heard Elvis on the radio. the single from the movie is great and got no airplay at all.

Unlike the Linda Macca food ad this advert is on everywhere

Re: Elvis when you least expect it

My Facebook friends will already know this but, Mrs Sheep and I were out celebrating our silver wedding anniversary last Wednesday at a restaurant in Valldemossa Majorca. They played 'You hung the moon'. Not a fitting song lyrically but the tune fitted the mood of the place.
