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.

Elvis plays Sheffield 20 March 2017

Presumably part of a wider European tour.

Beyond excited. I usually have to travel miles to see him, so a hometown gig is great news.

Re: Elvis & The Imposters play Liverpool , July 11 2016

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, ...

Was it George in his Northern Ireland kit?


In a leather coat, but the NI kit was the joke.

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

Re: New Gig Thread

I spent a marvelous evening with Miles Hunt and Erica Nockall playing Wonderstuff stuff in the Greystones in Sheffield. They were brilliant. The venue is a gem. It is just a backstreet pub, with a concert room at the rear. I've tickets to see Ben Watt and Glen Tilbrook in the same place fairly soon....

Re: 2014 Wednesday Oct 29th LONDON, ENGLAND, Royal Albert Ha

I've just paid the best part of £200 for four tickets in the Gods. I went to my computer several times, put tickets in the basket and then rejected them on the grounds of price. £130 for front stalls is outrageous. In the end, I opted for the cheap seats, which turned out to be the same price as the...
