Re: Elvis & the Imposters play City Hall, Sheffield, 7th March 2020.

40 years of watching Elvis and I’ve never shouted out for a request. Always deemed it disrespectful... but I’m tempted to holler for “ Blue Chair “ tonight... He did it 4 months ago, so he might play it for you. I'd wait after about 8 or 10 songs into the show. I too, have NEVER yelled for a reques...

Re: Elvis Costello General Discussion

Apologies to all. My first attempt at starting a new thread..and I fail miserably!! This Coronavirus panic is distracting me. Yes, I’ll be going. Really enjoyed the Nottingham gig on Monday but hoping for at least one choice cut from Blood & Chocolate on Saturday.

I'll be there ( and Sheffield ) with her indoors, 21 year old lad ( who is obsessed with Blood & Chocolate ) and two friends who attended their first ever EC gig with us last time he played this venue.Very pleased but surprised they were interested in view of the atrocious sound last time. Delig...

Re: ‘I Want You’ in movie ‘Only You’

Saw the film in Sheffield today with wife & two ( grown up ) kids. Thoroughly recommend it. “ I want you “ is deployed twice to very good effect and on the second occasion you get a decent view of the “ Blood & Chocolate “ LP. I almost let out a “whoop”.

Sadly, they won't be showing the programme in its original form. This is just a 30 minute show comprising of Melvyn Bragg's recollections and snippets from the original documentary.

Logan Hall 09/03/1985 - Miners Benefit

I have been somewhat dilatory in finding time to plough through " Unfaithful Music " ( the book ) but have just read EC's account of the South Wales miners benefit at Logan Hall in London on 09/03/1985 ( page 165 hardback ) It was, without doubt , the most moving concert I have attended. T...

Re: Elvis plays Warwick , May 9 2016

I also thoroughly enjoyed my fourth Detour show but why oh why does the great man inflict " She " on us. It's passable on record and works well in the film " Notting a Hill " but such a dirge as an acoustic piece. But what do I know? It received the biggest cheer on the night aft...

Re: Elvis, solo, Leicester, June 22 '15

Yes,I'll be there. My 3rd and final show of the tour. Always enjoy going to this venue as it brings back great memories of watching EC and The Jam there in the early 80's.My first ever EC gig was at De Montfort Hall in March 1981.I was 17 years old.Somewhat fitting that my 17 year old lad will joini...

Well,what can I say? Magnificent gig.Highlight for me was "Home Truth".Pretty sure it's the first time EC has played it on this tour.Good audience response despite the reluctance of many to get off their backsides for Peace,Love and Understanding.Can't wait for Leicester week tomorrow.

Re: Elvis, solo, Nottingham , June 14 2015

I don't think it was a Jazz crowd.Stuffy classical music types perhaps.I recall EC walking onto the stage at some point during the concert and no one applauded.Classical music etiquette methinks.He did a cracking version of "Shipbuiding" though.

Re: Elvis, solo, Nottingham , June 14 2015

Sadly, I reckon there will be lots of empty seats on Sunday night.I've been to every EC gig at the Concert Hall since he played there with John Harle in 1996 and it's never a sell out,even when he's got a record to plug.Tier 3 is always completely empty.

Re: New album for 2013: "Wise Up Ghost" (with The Roots!)

"Wise Up Ghost" vinyl edition now available as a pre-order item on Amazon UK.Surprisingly,the price is quite reasonable at £16.63.Sadly,it doesn't come with a free CD.Managed to pre-order the deluxe CD at £9.99 though so not too bad.
