Re: Elvis and The Imposters, Bristol , July 17 2016

It was a great show. I've sent John some photos which he will upload. SPOILER ALERT! The opening was interesting. The band came on and played the intro to Pump it up and then Elvis came on. I was already standing and he got everybody up . This was a good start as it kept the tempo up for quite a fe...

Re: Elvis (solo) plays Brescia, May 31, 2016

No, I'm not sure if it is typical of Italian security. There didn't seem to be any other interest in meeting Elvis apart from an older Italian guy asking security if they could get Elvis to sign his book. He was told no and sent away. I approached the stage at the end which seemed frowned upon but t...

Re: Elvis (solo) plays Brescia, May 31, 2016

Strange concert tonight. It was advertised to start at 9pm, like most Italian shows, but Larkin Poe came on stage to an almost empty venue at 8.15. I had just arrived and heard them starting so rushed in. Most of the rest of the audience arrived just before 9 so missed the support. The venue was hal...

Re: Elvis (solo) plays Bologna May 28th 2016

Fabulous gig last night. I just came on line to post the set list from memory having just jotted it down over breakfast only to find I'd been beaten to it. Elvis' voice is back and he sounded great. Only one stumble where he appeared to cough during She. The stories were slightly abridged but basica...

I'll be there.

My wife is flying home from Verona after we go to the Bologna gig and I'm travelling over to Brescia alone.

I would like to have done more than two shows but I'm being a good husband at the same time :wink:

Re: Elvis (solo) plays Bologna May 28th 2016

Anyone have any idea what time the sound check would be?

The show doesn't start until 9pm so I'd rather bump in to Elvis before the gig than after.

Im assuming a late sound check?

I'm going now Derby's season is over. I bought tickets ages ago but didn't make any travel arrangements until I knew the team's fate. My wife is going with me although she certainly isn't a fan. Last time I took her to see Elvis was in 1984 on the Goodbye Cruel World Tour when we were dating. I'm ho...

Re: Elvis & The Imposters play The Roundhouse, London July 6 2016

Been to the Roundhouse many times and I've never seen seating on the floor level. There is permanent balcony seating which is only a few rows deep and a lot seats don't offer a great view due to many pillars/roof supports I believe there is a VIP section of seating which gives access to the VIP bar ...

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...

Thanks Verbal.

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