Re: Elvis (solo ) , The Palladium, London , Tues May 10th 2016

I got that VIP email as well, despite not buying one. And then just now I got another one, which I thought would say something like "Sorry, we made a mistake!", but it was same email again! Ironic because I've been trying to upgrade my ticket unsuccessfully. Going to try for front row agai...

Re: Elvis solo, London (UK), May 2016

I am SO excited now!

Just letting everyone know, if you're going to the gigs by train, 10th 11th 12th and 13th May there is supposedly a rail strike on Southern Rail networks. I'm coming on SouthEastern and they tell me their routes will be strike-free, so I am hoping everything will be alright.

Re: Elvis solo, London (UK), May 2016

On the theme of Eurovision. Maybe Elvis should throw in a tribute to the song contest of all song contests on the 14th. I suggest 'Waterloo' sung to the tune and in the manner of 'I Want You'. It might just work. :wink: How about something even more absurd... 'Making Your Mind Up' but without the d...

Re: Elvis solo, London (UK), May 2016

^^^ Thanks for that! Can't seem to find any pictures anywhere for the merch. Maybe someone attending Coventry will post a photo. Would love a CD or DVD of that Liverpool Detour gig, too. Going to the first two shows. Thinking about the Friday night, too, but will probably make a last minute decision...

I'm going to go against the grain here and say I really like his ending of Room With No Number. Pretty simplistic, but it gets me.

Re: Elvis solo, London (UK), May 2016

Any one already had the pleasure on Detour know whether there are any decent merch stands on this tour? Would like a rough idea of whether I will get the opportunity to pay through the nose for a t-shirt. Any pics would be fab, too! :wink:

Re: Elvis (solo) plays Denver, CO, April 11th 2016 (2ND ROW TICKETS Available)

I think Elvis not wearing a hat will be the biggest surprise for me when his show hits London. I shouldn't be checking out his US setlists though... I'm becoming too familiar with it. Don't want to be able to predict the entire thing once I get to see him. Hopefully it will change a little bit by th...

Re: Elvis solo, London (UK), May 2016

VIP seats are being sold as far as row D - pssshhhhh! NO. I got normal price ticket in row E centre - just as good but much cheaper! Kind of annoying now we have to fork out VIP prices to sit near the front. I hope this won't become a more common thing from now on! I did get up front row centre VIP ...

Thanks Neil. I will see how I feel and I might just quickly say "This might be cheeky to ask, but I'm coming to your book event tonight and I'm going to write a review for it. Would you consider putting it on your website? Always wanted to write for it!" And yes, I am fully expecting a no,...

I had to miss out on his UK Detour this year because the venues were too far away and I spent all my money on Paul McCartney tickets... So I hope this news is true!! Time to save! Probably can't afford all four dates, but will be determined to go to at least two.* *This will probably change to all f...

I have this idea, but I'm sure it is probably a really dumb one. Long story short, I'm a freelance writer who likes to take... long shots. I've tried contacting various people who run EC's website because I've always wanted to do some writing for it. Then I thought... what if I just ask him in perso...

Re: Book promo, London , October 29th 2015

From the Southbank website.... Elvis is signing copies of Unfaithful Music & Disappearing Ink after the event I was told a few weeks ago he wouldn't be. Maybe they didn't know at the time. So what if you have a ticket for the HMV signing? Not sure I'd want to carry two copies of that massive bo...

Southbank confirm there will be no book included in the ticket price and no signing at the event. Luckily I got a ticket to meet him at HMV that afternoon!

Royal festival Hall 29 Oct. Booked. Me too! Disappointed the 'members' presale cleared all the close up centre stalls, but still managed to bag a second row side seat, so I'm happy with that.
