Re: Guitar solo in Watching the Detectives.

Yes, in my haste to post I referenced the wrong song, it does appear in Clubland. Thanks for that correction bronxpostle, now are we the only people that have noticed? I don't think it's ever been mentioned before.

Guitar solo in Watching the Detectives.

Stop me if this has been mentioned before, but has anyone else remarked on Elvis playing a few bars of How Insensitive by Antionio Carlos Jobim when he solos during Watching the Detectives. I have noticed this a few times live and he did it again at Liverpool last week. Looking forward to Blackpool ...

Re: Elvis Costello and The Imposters Southend 27th June 2018 - postponed

I spoke to the Cliffs Pavilion box office this afternoon to see if there had been any progress regarding a rescheduled date and they said that it was "hoped" that arrangements would be concluded by the end of this week. Plus, they would prefer that new date to be within weeks rather than m...

I received a phone call from the Cliffs Pavilion this morning and they said they are looking to reschedule the date within the next few weeks. Having checked to see when the Cliffs has dates available in July it could be the 22nd, 29th, 30th or 31st.

Re: Elvis & The Imposters play The Roundhouse, London July 6 2016

When I saw Sharon Jones @ The Dap-Kings at the Roundhouse there was a mix of standing and seating, the pricing would indicate that this may be the case for Elvis.

Re: When was your first Elvis gig?

First time I saw EC was 1977 July 26th at Dingwalls in Camden Town, can't say I remember much about the gig now, it's a long time ago. Then there was a gap of nearly three years until I caught up with him again and that was at the Rainbow on the 29th September 1980, The Stray Cats were the support. ...
