Re: Elvis plays Sheffield 20 March 2017

For those who are interested, Bill Kirchen plays Sheffield Greystones on 21st March. Sadly, he's in Cardiff on the 20th, or we might have seen a guest appearance.

Busy week for me though. Manchester on Sunday, Sheffield on Monday and Bill Kirchen on Tuesday.

I wonder whether Elvis deliberately played a fairly flat Oliver's Army after that awesome Bedlam. On a side note, ...

Thoroughly enjoyed the show. It washed away the memory of the Albert Hall last October.
