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

I’m sure that Getting Mighty Crowded should be in there.

And something else too.

Not “Something Else”, although I’d like to hear that. I mean another song :D

Re: "Plotting our return, early in the Leap Year" (2020 UK tour)

Sulky - you are an absolute hero in going to EVERY show. I is well jealous innit. As you are the man for the setlists, could you add the other songs included eg Pump it up in Southampton included Ain't that a lotta love. It's interesting because reading another review, he added something else. Thes...

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

That would be great. Any decent pubs nearby that you recommend ? There are plenty of decent pubs in Sheffield, but not so many near the City Hall. The nearest places are all cathedrals for the closing time choirs. I’d recommend seeking out either the Red Deer on Pitt Street, or The Bath Hotel on Vi...

Re: Elvis & The Imposters play Royal Concert Hall, Nottingham, March 2, 2020

Elvis’ voice was much better last night than it was in Liverpool. Just about glad and American without tears were most welcome. Two of my all time favourite songs. There was a nice snippet of Subterranean Homesick Blues in the middle of an electrifying Pump it up. On a side note, I’m collecting Labo...

I will too.

If anyone else needs any encouragement, The Royal Concert Hall don’t charge any rip off fees, if you book directly with them.

Re: Elvis's most 'Marmite' project

I think North would qualify as a 'Marmite' project. I know from conversations on Facebook it seems to divide the fans. Personally speaking I absolutely love both The Juliet Letters and North. For what its worth I love Marmite too TJL really benefits from repeated listening. It sat for years in my c...

As above really.

Maybe he should have been given a knighthood, but I guess that an OBE is a start.

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.

That was a great evening. I thought that the band took a while to hit top gear, but when they did, wow. It was a very political set of songs, very in keeping with these uncertain times. I wonder whether Elvis deliberately played a fairly flat Oliver's Army after that awesome Bedlam. On a side note, ...
