Re: Elvis & The Imposters, Brooklyn, March 7 2018

I plan to be there. Hoping there is no cancellation, although it might be dicey getting home after the show.

Me too. Fuck my life. The Wynn comped me one ticket and I was going to buy two more shows on StubHub. At least I didn't pay for any tickets.

I am beyond disappointed, was looking forward to it so much. Why Elvis, WHY??????

It was for a good cause, but that was painful. Although Forbidden Nights probably made it worthwhile.

Also, don't forget "Somewhere" (There's a Place For Us) at the end of the Alison medley!

Good to to see my friends from the board!

Alison is about 3 minutes in.


That is quite cool!

I was at the MetLife show last month and it was wonderful. Tremendous experience, both musically and visually.

Re: Imperial Bedroom & Other Chambers -Vienna, VA, Filene Center At Wolf Trap , June 22 2017

The lack of variety in the set lists this tour was a little disappointing, although granted they did have to play most of the IB songs. Eases the pain of missing this leg of the tour a little.

We will never see Painted From Memory, A Face in the Crowd, or any of the other alleged EC musicals. Here's hoping he releases an album or two with all the songs that were slated for the musicals.
