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

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...

Re: EC in for a good cause - The Adoration Trilogy

Elvis, why are you dressed in mega bling and that hat? Are you going into the rap scene now? :lol: :lol: It says on Facebook: "Searching for Apollo: a collaboration between The Who's Roger Daltrey and photographer Alistair Morrison." So is this just a photography project to raise money for...

I'm pretty sure it'll tie in with his mum's birthday.


This has made me a very happy bunny. Fingers crossed this will happen! Hearing You Little Fool live will make my year. :mrgreen:

Re: Elvis & The Imposters play The Roundhouse, London July 6 2016

Oh, I only just saw Verbal's private message to say about ten of you were at the front opposite EC's mic. I'm gutted because I was at the front barrier opposite his mic too, so we must have been centimetres away from each other! I was just a little to the right of the mic standing in between a tall ...

Re: Elvis solo, London (UK), May 2016

Hey guys, Just wanted to ask those who bought VIP tickets whether the organisers actually posted the VIP item they said they didn't have on the night? They took everyone's address for it. I haven't heard or received anything. I have a feeling they are not actually going to send anything, so we basic...

Re: Elvis & The Imposters play The Roundhouse, London July 6 2016

I got my standing ticket! Yippee! I wonder how many people will slum it like me and show up early for a good spot? Considering at every EC gig I've been to I'm always stopped by an older lady who exclaims: "You're the youngest person here!" :lol: Any one know the procedure for waiting to g...

Re: Elvis & The Imposters play The Roundhouse, London July 6 2016

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? I will be bringing a flask, a bag of sweets and playing my entire EC and Dusty Springfield Spotify collection - in other words...

Re: Elvis & The Imposters play The Roundhouse, London July 6 2106

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

Well, my first front row Elvis experience... bloody wonderful. Shame Elvis had a bit of a cold, but excellent nonetheless. I sat next to a lone guy and we got talking about Paul McCartney. I always seem to sit next to people like me who attend alone. Luckily, EC is the one topic I can talk a lot abo...

Verbal - No, it wasn't me. But I was THRILLED he did The Comedians. What were the chances? I'm very intrigued to know why the forum seems to know that Elvis's people come here for requests. Enlighten me, if you will? :)

Re: Elvis solo, London (UK), May 2016

I am SO excited now!

Just letting everyone know, if you're going to the gigs by train, 10th 11th 12th and 13th May there is supposedly a rail strike on Southern Rail networks. I'm coming on SouthEastern and they tell me their routes will be strike-free, so I am hoping everything will be alright.

Re: Elvis solo, London (UK), May 2016

On the theme of Eurovision. Maybe Elvis should throw in a tribute to the song contest of all song contests on the 14th. I suggest 'Waterloo' sung to the tune and in the manner of 'I Want You'. It might just work. :wink: How about something even more absurd... 'Making Your Mind Up' but without the d...

I think Elvis not wearing a hat will be the biggest surprise for me when his show hits London. I shouldn't be checking out his US setlists though... I'm becoming too familiar with it. Don't want to be able to predict the entire thing once I get to see him. Hopefully it will change a little bit by th...
