Re: Elvis & Imposters play Beacon, NYC 11/6

This was my 2nd show of this short tour, having seen them in Atlantic City to start it. As I mentioned in my review of that show, I was interested to see where this set would go. While 1/3 of the set list changed (12 songs different between AC and here) it was the performances of these songs that ha...

Re: Elvis & The Imposters play Atlantic City, NJ , October 22 2016

A few days late, but some thoughts on what was a great show. I was looking forward to this tour, as Imperial Bedroom is one of my top 5 albums. Went back and listened to some of the shows from 1982 and it brought back great memories. Some of the songs from the album are played different since Davey ...

Re: Elvis DETOUR at last in NYC October 1, 2016 TOWN HALL - promo interview in NYT

I’ll preface the review, there isn’t a bad Elvis concert, seeing him twice more (Atlantic City and Beacon night 1), but last night left me wanting more. I guess I’ve set my (or his) standards too high. 2nd time I’ve seen the Detour (Denver this past April), and both times, I didn’t enjoy Larkin Poe....

If the ticket says 8, I am certain LP will hit the stage promptly. What will they play...25 minutes as they play again with E. Look for him to hit the stage 8:40/50 i'd bet as I'm certain he wants to give us more than two hours by 11:00 curfew. Enjoy NEWSFLASH!!!! TH website has 7:30 start time. So...

Re: Elvis/Imposters, Huntington, NY , Sept. 30 '11

Back home from show, ended with Elvis walking off stage after 'A Slowdrag with Josephine'. This surprised his crew (I was sitting behind the soundboard) and Steve, who was still at stage right during Josephine. Show only 1:35 long. Elvis was not happy. While his voice wasn't great, i have heard wors...

Just back from AC. Arrived late thursday, only to wake up to the dissapointing news. The Borgata had no information on a rescheduling of this show. They had hoped to have more information in about a week. Worked out to be an expensive weekend, two nights at the Borgata and we didn't do to well at th...

Re: APRIL 1 - NEW YORK SHOW - GRAMERCY THEATRE

I approached Elvis’s performance at Gramercy Theatre with more unknown than any show I have seen in quite some time. While this was the first performance with The Imposters in nearly a year, it wasn’t like this was going to be a one off show. I didn’t expect a greatest hits show, nor a speed through...

Elvis & Emmy @ Central Park - Roll Call

Anyone going?

I am going with my son, and hopefully will be there about 5:30 (gates open @ 6:00). When we went in 2003, we got there when the gates opened and ended up about 10 feet from the stage.
