Re: Master tapes with Elvis Costello - 10th September 2018

...Roll on a Look Now UK tour! Was there any mention, hint, or even a wink from EC about the possibility of this? Colin Top Balcony with fingers firmly crossed Not that I recall. Trust me, if he had said that I would be on here jumping up and down with excitement! It's just a wish. Or maybe.... A H...

Sorry to VG for not getting back to you - I was trying to remember my password so I could log onto the site on my phone and I couldn't get through - especially with the magic phrase that you had to wait to find out!

Re: Look Now: new album announced!

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...

Wow, there's quite the collection of merch for this album. He's really cashing in on this! :lol: I wish there was a "despatcher" based in the UK/Europe somewhere. Not paying the crazy shipping prices. I hope there might be the chance to purchase some on a Look Now-esque tour that will come...

Re: Look Now: new album announced!

I hope, what with the cancellation of UK and Europe dates this summer and this new album coming... we will see some UK dates announced at some point. Obviously things are on hold for now and that's completely understandable, but please come and play us your new tunes when you can, EC!

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

Awwww bollocks! I made a lot of plans - hotels, train tickets, etc and spent a lot of money to go and see this and because it's last minute I'll lose all my money. Plus going to the Holland show - train tickets, Airbnb, etc. Big loss. Possibly another year of no EC shows for me. Depressing. Obviousl...

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.

Re: Elvis and The Imposters, Royal Park Live (Holland), July 5, 2018

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...

Not another festival act! Come on, EC! Don't you think you're good enough to have your own shows anymore? I won't be attending any festivals. Mud, rain, crowds, rude people, standing endlessly, waiting through acts you didn't come to see, being in the middle of nowhere, and the set probably won't be...

Chris Toast categorically says "First" bit of touring announced (although we all knew that would be the case). No doubt the UK will miss out on this one like we did with the Imperial Bedroom shows... https://www.instagram.com/p/BaUFVtNhIN8dFBy5lF50WjEFFpODX0b3IDErZU0/ I'm really surprised...

That's good then. At least standing means the 'members' didn't have the chance to grab all the good seats. Anyone thinking of arriving early to get a good spot at the front?

Any indication if it's GA or seated? Never been to this venue before.

Another one of those annoying things where the 'members' get first dibs and by general sale there's nothing decent left.

Nonetheless, VERY HAPPY this is happening. :D
