Did anyone notice him doing a bit of "Busy Bodies"(!) a few days ago...?

Okay, you Brit punters. This show ended, like, four hours ago. Where's the setlist?! Videos?

Bummed to see he's still using those video projections. They're lame, and distracting as fuck.

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...

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...

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....
