Re: Elvis Costello cancels tour after surgery to remove 'aggressive' tumour

I've always promised myself a U.S. tour when I retire, just hope I do before Elvis. Problem is, my first plan for the Texas Sugarcanes fell though and now I don't know whether to do an East Coast or West coast - I know I'll HAVE to do NY just to meet the revered Apostles ! this is sort of my dream ...
