Re: Memories and images of Elvis in Ireland, March 1978 - new photos of Belfast show

Amazing to see these. I was at this gig, 16 years old and venturing into Belfast city centre was quite the adventure in those days. Very few bands had visited Belfast in the early and mid 70s due to the troubles, and then suddenly a spurt from about 76 onward - Dr Feelgood, Eddie and the hot rods, T...

Re: Has anyone ever come across this demo collection?

It was a very useful boot when it first appeared but much of the content was subsequently officially released on the Rhino reissue bonus discs.

Re: Elvis and The Imposters play Belfast , July 19th 2016

It's 11,000 capacity is for full hall, going by the photos they reconfigured it to around half or a third of that size. Still, I said when it was announced it was a strange venue choice, way too big for an artist with whom Belfast has an uneasy relationship. By which I mean, there were long periods ...

Re: Elvis and The Imposters play Belfast , July 19th 2016

I will miss this one as I'll be in the US on that date. I've been at every Costello gig in Belfast since 1978, so not happy!

SSE Arena is a strange choice, it's a cavernous ice hockey arena, 6,000+ capacity, really only suitable for big arena shows.
