Re: Relatively Insignificant EC Stuff. . .

My wife got me this framed print for my birthday today. I've pictured it next to my original signed single and it really is a great piece of work. The original painting is wonder. I've not seen this original but have seen other examples of his work. Apparently when the print arrived the glass was br...

Elvis solo plays Bologna (ITA) - 28th May 2016

Just decided to treat myself. Front row of the balcony at more reasonable prices than the UK In fact all the Italian dates look very close together. It would be a fun thing to do next Spring :D https://secure.ticketone.it/elvis-costello-bologna-tickets.html?affiliate=ITT&doc=artistPages%2Fticket...

Re: Book promo, Royal Festival Hall, London , October 29th 2015

Impressive turnout which Elvis said he was very touched by. He said he had been there to see classical performances and the place was only half full. I felt a bit sorry for Nick Hornby. He came across as a real fan and clearly had the questions he wanted to ask whereas I think Elvis wanted to lead t...

Re: London book promo - 29th October

Thanks Verbal.

It looks a bit more relaxed than the WH Smith restrictions that were posted.

Hopefully it won't be too busy and we'll all get what we want. If not I'll try again at the Festival Hall :D

Re: The Elvis Costello/Simpsons action figure

This has been a bit of a prolonged saga. I got confirmation yesterday that the figure had been finally dispatched having placed the order back in January. The strange thing was Forbidden Planet emailed me last week to make sure I still wanted it due to the date of the original order? The next questi...

Re: Elvis 'memoir' now due Oct. 2015 - promo tour details

I'm in the 2nd row too.

Hoping for a book signing or, failing that, a bit of stalking at the stage door.

Any idea how long the event is planned to last?

Re: Clickimin Centre, Lerwick - 16th July 1991

That's the one. I'm the Instrument Technician who caught the gig on the way down from the oilfields. I think I said something like I try and catch at least one show on every tour and this was the 20th time I had seen him. Which became seeing every one of his 20 tours. Journalists? This was then slig...

Clickimin Centre, Lerwick - 16th July 1991

I was wondering if anyone has a copy or scan of the article published in one of the broadsheets (the Independent or Guardian?) about this gig. I was interviewed, among others, by the reporter after the show and there was a decent spread in the paper published a day or two after the date. I had a cop...

Re: I'm Your Toy promo video on Vevo/YouTube

We had tickets in the second row and it was a fantastic seat. I had received a 'proper' camera for Christmas and this show came along too quickly for me to have tried it out. Without any real knowledge of the camera's workings I sat and happily snapped a whole film thoughout the gig. When the photos...

Re: Elvis, solo, Leicester, June 22 '15

Lighthouse was a named song on the setlist. None of the lyrics quoted ring a bell but it was early in the set. I've been trying to track down Lighthouse to see if hearing it would spark something but so far no luck. It was noticeable that quite a few were recording bits on phones and cameras so I'm...

Re: Elvis, solo, Leicester, June 22 '15

It was a fabulous show last night. I love the De Montfort Hall as it was our 'local' venue for gigs during my formative years and a regular on the punk/new wave scene. I loved going to see Elvis there as well as the Clash and the Jam back in the 70s. I first saw Elvis there in 1978 and last night wa...

It was in Nottingham.

The call of Psycho could have been a tribute to one of their long list of recently failed managers. Or perhaps a form of tourettes and a warning to those around :wink:

Damn, he played Tiny Steps!

I requested he play it at Leicester when I spoke to him after the Oxford gig.

He said "Tiny Steps? I'll see what I can do".

I suppose he could play it again :D

Great show again last night although his voice was slightly croakier than it was in Birmingham. You Belong To Me was a surprise and When I Was Cruel was a treat. Matthew Met Mary was new announced as a new song by Bob Dylan that he knows nothing about. Elvis totally messed up Shipbuilding. He seemed...
