I dunno....these cancellations/postponements seem to have gotten more frequent in recent years. Does anyone know what his surgery was for?

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.

Thoughts on the New York Shows...

Anyone here who went to all four? Any thought on which was the best?

I only went to two, but I'd be surprised if 3/9 didn't emerge as the highest-rated....

Re: Elvis and The Imposters , Port Chester , March 9 2018

FAVEHOUR:

I had the exact same experience tonight. Was a bit let down after the Bklyn show, mostly because I was expecting something different. But, like you, tonight I just decided to sit (also: sitting was nice) and enjoy, and boy, did I.

Very hot show. And, holy shit: Poor Napoleon!!!!

Re: Elvis & The Imposters, Brooklyn, March 7 2018

A great, but not awesome show. Some terrific surprises (Blue Chair, Miracle Man, Next Time Around, Come the Meantimes, Still Have That Other Girl) but, I dunno, the show didn't seem to have a focus. That's what happens when you're not touring an album or framing it with a gimmick (Spinning Songbook,...

Brooklyn Steel is booked on 3/10 and 3/12, so I imagine they'd be hard pressed to postpone or cancel the gig. Personally, I'd love a slightly depressed turnout.....

Re: "Someone Else's Heart" - EC single for Record Store Day?

On one of the EC-devoted Facebook pages there's a photo of Davey and his brother with EC, taken this week, at a recording studio in LA. Davey's brother says he's there to assist on the recording of EC's "new album."

Anyone know anything about this? Would be terrific news!

Re: Imposters March 7, 8, & 9 New York!!! NOW NOW NOW

I'll admit this is rather picayune point, but.....

The Gigography has this show listed as being in "New York." It should really say "Brooklyn." Fer Chrissakes, by population it's the fourth-largest "town" in the country!

Re: Elvis playing Vegas, Feb/March 2018 -'only shows of 2018' !?!

Okay...so we've had Spinning Songbook, then Imperial Bedroom, now another gimmicky repackaging of the repertoire...with a tossed-off come-on about "new songs" to give it a sense of freshness and get the true believers on board. Far be it from me to sniff at EC/Imposters remaining an active...
