Re: ELVIS COSTELLO & THE IMPOSTERS ANNOUNCE UPCOMING FALL TOUR

I happen to know BA, and he's FUCKING BRILLIANT! And I love his CAP letters, they are his trademark and show his ENTHUSIASM for all things EC. He's a helluva guy. Maybe its being a NY'er, but it's virtually impossible to be first on line for anything here, so I never have any expectation of getting ...

Just got my ticket for Hershey! Now just have to get my tix for the Port Chester shows. Pretty expensive on Stub Hub right now.

Re: 5 Favorite Elvis Albums

Get Happy!
Imperial Bedroom
King of America
Painted From Memory
All This Useless Beauty

Look Now, National Ransom, and This Year's Model could all easily have made this list also. And Delivery Man and Brutal Youth and Juliet Letters. Very tough to choose.

Re: Essential bootlegs/ Getting started with boots/ General advice

Would definitely love to hear a proper live recording of Couldn't Call It Unexpected No.4 (Easily one of his most beautifully melodic songs, up there with Isabelle In Tears) from that On The Road Bootleg. It would be a tremendous Christmas present to show up from some festive person in my inbox :P ...

Re: Essential bootlegs/ Getting started with boots/ General advice

This one is my favorite, and a great representation of the Costello/Nieve tours. I think it was a Canadian radio broadcast so the sound is fantastic. http://www.elviscostello.info/wiki/index.php/Bootleg:_On_The_Road_Again The set list looks great. Is that bootleg available somewhere for download? I...

"Can you admit your love"

Re: Elvis & The Imposters, Wallingford, CT, Oakdale Theatre , Nov. 9th 2018 - CANCELLED

So I should have learned my lesson, 3 out of the last 6 concerts I've had tickets to have been canceled. But anyway, I decide to leave my house nice and early knowing it will be about a 4-hour drive to Wallingford due to the weather and it being a Friday. I figure I'll get there around 5-5:30, get a...

Nice to have a drink with Doc and BA before the show! A stellar 29-song performance (30 if you count the verse of "Jimmy" preceding Under Lime). Great crowd and EC was appreciative. Best show of the tour so far (although I was not in DC).

Re: EC/Imposters Hard Rock Atlantic City November 3, 2018

I count eight songs from the new album and, i think, more last night. question for those in know: is this a lot of new material live from a new album? or to be expected more or less? Not that unusual for EC. The last time I saw him on a proper "album tour" was for SP&S, and he played ...

Nope. That and I Let the Sun Go Down were the only songs from the album not played. And none of the bonus tracks.

Re: Elvis and The Imposters , the Bethlehem Events Center , November 2nd 2018

He struggled remembering the lyrics to the new songs, which was surprising, you would that that would have been nailed down. Maybe because they cut the album back in March. He's Given Me Things was a mess.
