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

I have one spare ticket for Southampton on 1st March row B stalls (I think end of row), if anyone is interested? I pick up the ticket at box office on the night.

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

*but for the record the same venue and the same seat in 2018 was £55...he better play twice as long! That’s the point I made earlier. The addition of the two ladies has pushed the prices up by over £40 :? It’s obviously a simplistic comment but it does rankle somewhat. Actually no - because the Jun...

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

Well, that was a shambles! The tour announcement email tells you to click on the "shows" page for the presale and that page was blank! Then when I finally found it I saw the front block available and every one I selected took me to an error. Then later selecting other half decent seats and...

Maria and Angela Eagle were at the Palladium shows in 2016. Also spoke to Tom Watson on Twitter (not so much a fan of him anymore, admittedly) and he is also a big fan and loves Punch the Clock.

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

Thanks for the info! I read there’s a presale on the 18th and the 19th before general sale on the 20th. Was that maybe a typo or is there really two presales?

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

Super excited! Early days, but hoping for London, Oxford and maybe one other - possibly Southampton or Birmingham. Does anyone know if there's general admission or seated tickets?

Re: "Plotting our return, early in the Leap Year"

He's dragging this out! I think it's because over the past few years he's created all these new tour themes and he's only really played them in the US. Then the cancelled UK gigs last year I guess many fans were expecting maybe some dates this year. So when he announced yet another new US tour lots ...

Re: "Watch This Space..."

Another US tour/exclusive US tour theme??? No signs of even re-booking or making new UK dates for the cancelled ones last year. Plus this tour idea would be A DREAM COME TRUE for me and many others. I do think this tour idea would market well in Europe and the UK. Really really disappointed. :cry:

A Case for Song (1996)

Hi all, While we wait watching tumbleweed on tour dates or some similarly exciting news of any kind... I found fragments on A Case for Song on YouTube and noticed many songs are not there. E.g. Riot Act. I remember this being a particularly wonderful performance, but it's disappeared. Does anybody k...

As well as Jardine's interpretations of the Under Lime title, I also thought of it as drinking under lime as in drinking as far down as the bottom of the glass where the drink-soaked and heavy lime slice ends up sinking to. Is Jimmie a drinker? If he's a flawed man created by EC then I reckon he pro...

Re: Elvis Costello and The Imposters Southend 27th June 2018

It's seated. Checked a presale this morning. No decent tickets available, so I'm waiting for tomorrow. I can see Southend from where I live, except it takes hours to get there by train... still the closest show by far though so I'm going for it anyway.

My girlfriend lives in Holland at the moment and I was researching this recently but decided it probably wouldn't be a good idea (plus she isn't exactly a fan like me). So I spent the week thoroughly depressed about the UK dates so far just being outdoorsy festival style gigs. Not being able to driv...
