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...

Re: Imperial Bedroom & Other Chambers -Milwaukee, WI, Riverside Theatre , July 16 2017

Thanks, FaveHour! That was great. I've long wondered: I assume (maybe incorrectly) that the live videos on this forum are, at least mostly, uploaded by members. But maybe not....cuz it always seems it's the same old greatest hits (Alison, Detectives, PIU, PLU, etc.) that get featured. I'd think that...

Agreed. Also, it seems his voice has lost a little something. I think perhaps age is catching up with him.

Re: Elvis 'Detour', Oslo (Norway), February 27, 2017

Only 21-song setlist at Bergen?

Am I the only one getting the sense that these Scandinavia shows--maybe owing to some listless audiences--have been deeply underwhelming?

Had he done "Detour" there already? Cuz the shtick seems a bit tired.

Gothenburg is Sweden's "second city," a pretty big, culturally aware place.

So....why no setlist?

Re: Elvis & Imposters play Beacon, NYC 11/6

One of the best shows I've seen him do with the Imposters...and I've seen A LOT of them. And very different than any other show, which was cool. For the first half hour or 45 minutes he was rocking out, playing almost metal-like guitar. Then it turned into a kind of "Young Americans"-esque...

Re: Elvis & Imposters end tour Beacon 11/7/2016 NYC

Anyone have any idea when he'll actually be taking the stage tomorrow?

Tics say 7:30.

Also: A friend told me she got an email from the Beacon saying that due to tightened security ticketholders should allow 30 minutes for entry.

Question: I'm trying to figure out when the NYC shows at the Beacon will start--i.e., when the band will take the stage. I've noticed for a few of the shows that were documented on thuis site the start time was noted as 8:10...but what was the time on the ticket for those, 7:30 or 8:00? The Beacon s...

Re: Elvis DETOUR at last in NYC October 1, 2016 TOWN HALL - promo interview in NYT

Twelve new songs in that show and the only videos up are EIWTB and PLU? I noticed that he didn't do any songs from inside the TV....which makes all the clutter on stage even less necessary. Does anyone else find the slideshow and videos really distracting? As a previous poster put it....why the gimm...

Re: Elvis DETOUR at last in NYC October 1, 2016 TOWN HALL

There's no such thing as a bad Elvis show in my book, and it was great to hear a bunch of new songs.

But that was WAY too much Larkin Poe for my taste.

Bring on the Imposters @ the Beacon!

Re: Elvis DETOUR at last in NYC October 1, 2016 TOWN HALL - promo interview in NYT

Anyone know--or have a well-educated guess about--what time EC will hit the stage at Town Hall tomorrow? I don't need to see Larkin Poe but don't want to miss any of the main event.

I'm guessing he's on about 8:20. Does that sound right?
