Re: Elvis & The Imposters play Gettysburg, PA , July 17th 2019

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?

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.

Re: ELVIS COSTELLO & THE IMPOSTERS ANNOUNCE UPCOMING FALL TOUR

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.

Re: ELVIS COSTELLO & THE IMPOSTERS ANNOUNCE UPCOMING FALL TOUR

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

I can't for the life of me understand why he hasn't played the Kings Theatre in Brooklyn yet.

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?

Thanks

Re: US TOUR DATES

Some strange town/venue choices.

NJ: No Newark or Montclair or Englewood, but TWO shore towns, Atlantic City and Asbury Park
NY: No Manhattan or Brooklyn, but Verona (!)
PA: No Philly or Pittsburgh, but Bethlehem (!)

Re: Elvis & The Imposters, Paramount Theatre , Asbury Park , NJ , November 6th 2018

If anyone has an extra tic, I'd love to make this show....especially as 1) STILL no NYC dates on this tour and 2) it's on Election Day and I'm going to need all the distraction I can get.

Thanks

Re: US TOUR DATES

I'd been hoping that by now NYC shows would have been announced. Now, I'm wondering if I should try to score a tic for Asbury Park. (Anyone got a spare?)

Also: Asbury is on Election Day, and I'm gonna need all the distraction I can get....but damn, I hate having to schlep to Jersey!

Re: US TOUR DATES

I have to believe they'll be NY shows following the album release.

And, just for the record: It IS possible to go on tour and use ticket sellers other than Ticketmaster and LN. Difficult, maybe, but possible.
