Elvis was in great shape, the huge...

De laatste show band

This is the name of the house band from the Belgian daily TV show 'De laatste show' (The late show). I found 2 Costello covers on the site (well, 1,5...)

Listen and enjoy!

Rock Werchter

Elvis is playing at rock werchter tonight, one of Europe’s biggest festivals. There’s an interesting site http://www.rockwerchter.be (also in English) with interviews and live fragments etc. Elvis is playing at 10.00 PM (european time). So there’s a possibility we can see him perform live.
