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

For the record, I think the seemingly constant need from many quarters to politicise the current crisis is unnecessary. Agreed. When Wayne Rooney has to make an anti- government point about it, it’s clearly gone too far. I’m no Tory but I thought the response in the press conference on Thursday was...

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

Picked up a Glasgow stalls ticket for £36.

Bit worried if they are discounting this much this early whether some of the shows will actually go ahead. The prices will have put many off, as we said before.

No you're not - I thought that Lou sounded like ONJ the first time I saw them live a few years ago. On record the similarity is even stronger.

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

The standing tickets for £52 at Hammersmith were sold out at the presale. I’d pay any price to see him, but doubling the ticket price over night is a bit much for some. As far as I could see it was all seated at Hammersmith?? I got confused too at one presale confusing Eventim Olympia (Liverpool) a...

So Hammersmith is sitting - very disappointing. Most gigs I've been to there recently having been standing in the stalls. Crikey these are pricy!!!! Only committed myself to standing in Liverpool so far. Think I'll rein in my expectations of number to go to. Are there any others with standing? I won...

Cocktail Murderess informed me that The Waterboys and Nick Lowe are supporting Elvis in Sheffield. . I saw that on one website - I think it's just a lazy cut and paste from a journalist, using the bio for the Blenheim Palace gig a couple of years ago. There's no way that is going out on the road as...

Re: Elvis's most 'Marmite' project

The album I just don't seem to get on with is Secret, Profane and Sugarcane. EC doing bluegrass sounds a great idea in theory but it just doesn't work for me. Clumsy title too - unusual for Elvis. I guess to be Marmite then someone needs to love it - not so sure about that! PS I love Marmite and gre...

Re: Happy 65th birthday!!

I was at Anfield yesterday and they announced Elvis was Guest of Honour at half time and played PLU.

Shame they didn't get the squad to sign his shirt.

Also a shame we couldn't have put up a better performance (from a gooner).

These are going for close to £40 on ebay. Record Store Day just makes money for nefarious profiteers online - does nothing for the true music fan - and I suspect little for the record stores themselves. For goodness sake just release a single as a normal single!

My only copy of Look Now is the 12 track vinyl which I then recorded onto an audio only CD-R and it sounds great on both formats - I have always come back to vinyl as my primary source (except for a certain number of live recordings - gulp) and the reissues on mobile fidelity have been mind-bogglin...
