Re: 2014 Wednesday Oct 29th LONDON, ENGLAND, Royal Albert Ha

I've finally succumbed and got a front row stalls on the side about 10 seats from the stage! With no gig since the summer I can't wait to see the great man again! Even just watching those old snippets on "Anarchy in Manchester" have really got the juices flowing ! Who else is going ? I'm ...

Re: 2014 Wednesday Oct 29th LONDON, ENGLAND, Royal Albert Ha

I'M GOING! Got my ticket yesterday morning when I should have been working - I'm sorry but EC gigs are far more important! :P I got front row stalls in the exact same seat I had last year for the spinning songbook, funnily enough. Good view! The official RAH website seem to offer cheaper booking fee...

Re: 2014 Wednesday Oct 29th LONDON, ENGLAND, Royal Albert Ha

Agreed. The ticket prices for this are eye-poppingly high. I wouldn't pay £130 to see a show that probably won't be as long as his other solo shows on tour. I'd just be going to see Elvis. Not interested in anyone else. I'm hoping to get a stalls seat because they're cheaper (still expensive, though...

Re: Elvis ( solo) plays Bexhill, July 17 2014

Amazing some of you guys met him. I wish he'd done more UK gigs this year and maybe a theatre in Kent so I could get the chance. I could only manage Kew and hopefully Bluesfest in October and those are in venues/events where you don't get that chance. EC - PLEASE do a show in Kent so I can see a ful...

Re: Elvis plays Kew The Music, London, July 2014

So glad I managed to make my way through the hoard of middle class picnicers discussing their banal lives and get to the 'mosh pit' right up front. Only two people in front of me and both were short, so I had a very enjoyable time! Highlights for me were: She, Good Year For The Roses, Pads Paws and ...

Re: Elvis plays Kew The Music, London, July 2014

Actually it probably doesn't matter about queuing outside for so long because if I nab a space near the stage I am, at some point, going to need the loo. The loos are apparently situated right at the back. *shrug* *head explodes* I don't know.

Re: Elvis plays Kew The Music, London, July 2014

I'm new here, but I'm going!

Open to ticket holders from 6pm. What would be a good time to arrive for a decent distance to the stage? 4pm?

Do you reckon there'll be a merch stand?

EXCITED!! :D

Re: Elvis plays Kew The Music, London, July 2014

What time is everybody arriving? I don't want to wait around all day and get sore feet or a numb bum, but I don't want to arrive too late and be right at the back. I'm a first timer to general admission concerts. Has anyone here been to Kew The Music before? Do people normally rush to the front stra...

Re: Elvis plays Kew The Music, London, July 2014

I caved in and bought a ticket for Kew. Never been keen on general admission gigs, but seeing as there will be no other EC gigs in London this summer I thought bugger it! I've read his solo shows go on for 2.5 hours, but Kew's schedule says he'll be done by 10:15pm. Is that the definite curfew set b...

Re: UK Tour 2014

Starting to think there won't be any more UK show announcements for summer or autumn. Having said that, I don't know how EC's people arrange and announce his touring plans, so I could be wrong. I just wish I could find a decent seat for his RAH gig in October. £50 for up in the gods is a bit too pri...

Re: UK Tour 2014

So you think he may announce more? Hopefully soon. I don't want to wait out, there being no more dates added, go to buy a Kew ticket and them be sold out. The reserved areas (which I would have preferred to get) are already sold out. Come on, Elvis! More UK dates!

Re: UK Tour 2014

Hello. New to the forum. I'm wondering if anyone reckons if any more UK dates will be announced for July, or even November? I was going to go to Kew, but I'd prefer a non-festival date at a seated venue. Will probably buy a ticket for Bluesfest regardless because I love seeing EC at RAH, but waiting...
