Re: Elvis and The Imposters, Port Chester, NY, October 29 & 30 2019

I've been so accustomed to his preternaturally high energy level over the years that I took it for granted. But it really, finally hit me on Wednesday night: He's a 65-year-old man...and a cancer survivor at that.

Re: Elvis and The Imposters, Port Chester, NY, October 29 & 30 2019

I corresponded with a friend after the show. His take (which I think is pretty spot-on): The show made me sad in a way. He’s gotten older. He was sick and you can tell. It’s the first time I sensed a weakness in him. He’s always been so mighty. He had breathing issues for sure. Range issues. The mix...

Re: Elvis and The Imposters, Port Chester, NY, October 29 & 30 2019

Charm School was a delight...maybe the highlight of the show. That said....All things taken together, I was disappointed. The only thing that was truly great was the setlist. His voice did not sound good for the first half hour; in fact, there was a lack of...something (electricity? excitement) in t...

Re: Elvis and The Imposters, Port Chester, NY, October 29 & 30 2019

Hi, all...

I can't say for sure, but it's possible that I'll have an extra tic for 10/30 in Port Chester. Row F, right orch. At price. I'll update on this page as the date approaches.

All these complaints about "pricey" tickets are hilarious. Try buying a good seat for an Elvis show in NYC!

Re: ELVIS COSTELLO & THE IMPOSTERS ANNOUNCE UPCOMING FALL TOUR

MOJO's right, at least in the broad strokes. Good tics for many shows--including EC shows, such as the upcoming Port Chester gigs--are not even available when tics go on sale...but will show up en masse sometimes just hours later at outrageous prices via "secondary markets" (read: legalize...

Has there been any info from the EC camp as to whether naming the tour "Just Trust" actually means it'll be focused on that album? I've heard none. Maybe it's just a name....

That reminds me: Anyone know if we're going to be stuck with the background singers forever? Will we ever see EC & Is as a four-piece again? It seems that ship has indeed sailed...but, you never know. He does truly value their contribution it appears. Stuck with, harsh dude. A nice new layer of...

Re: ELVIS COSTELLO & THE IMPOSTERS ANNOUNCE UPCOMING FALL TOUR

Agreed: I was at it for a good 40 minutes for the Capitol and wasn't offered one seat in the center orchestra. WTF?I Is this Ticketfly holding them back for the "secondary market"? It's a disgrace.

BA is right. I don't even bother with pre-sales anymore....only a relative handful of seats are put on sale that way. It's just a gimmick for the marks.

No NYC shows...again. Looks like I'm headed to Port Chester.

Re: EC/Imposters and Blondie co-headline 13-date US tour, July-August 2019

A little surprised at all the excitement over this mini-tour. Given the co-headline setup, EC's set is sure to be short and greatest-hits-y, and I'd imagine he and the Imps will be the opening band on half the dates. I particularly expect that to be the case in NYC, Blondie's (and my) hometown, and ...

Nick Lowe NYC Bowery Ballroom 4/13

An "Elvis-adjacent" post, if you will: I just learned that I'll be having surgery on 4/11 and will thus be unable to make Nick's (sold-out) show on 4/13.

So, I'm selling my tic (at cost, of course). Anyone interested?
