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

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...

Re: ELVIS COSTELLO & THE IMPOSTERS ANNOUNCE UPCOMING FALL TOUR

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.

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.

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: 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.

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!
