well, as i am ABSENT tonight from the BEACON THEATER (unbelievably as i head home uptown from 52nd and 8th at approximately 6:15 p.m. {I KNOW DON'T RUB IT IN!!!!}), please DO NOT point it out to attendance teacher Mr. Costello! i figured i could update this now, and tell you the two lovely milestone numbers i reached last night. i went in at 699 different songs, so with the addition of the two, i am now at 701 songs i have seen him perform LIVE! staggering i know, HIM, NOT ME!!! also, i was at a total of 2993 songs i have seen him perform over the 122 appearances i have been fortunate enough to have witnessed. so, yes, ELVIS is now in the 3000 club with 3029 performed for me. i sure hope that these numbers continue to grow, with God's grace!!! best wishes to all, benny

P.S. i am noticing some bad story telling grammar...the 2993 number was BEFORE the 11/6 show, so the addition of 36 more at this appearance 122 for me, got me above 3000 total.

I'm really hoping that there's something released from this tour. I haven't had a chance to see it but sounds excellent.

OCD ba updates his list adding three more from the LITTLE KIDS ROCK show here in NYC this week. Surely someone will point out that the 'SHE LOVES YOU' refrain was a part of the original ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE song and should NOT be added. But, it IS my list AND upon reflection, Elvis did NOT include it in the 1985 version. So.... :lol: :lol:

Hi ef!!! I will begin with the one MOST a stretch. EIWTB for me is the single song MOST revamped by Elvis. On the Steely Dan tour a few years back, the song had QUITE the different lilt to it once again. AND, as he wandered his way throughout the audience during, i gave it THIS silly little subtitle. The other two are much more accurate in title and easier to agree with if you hear my or any recording of the specific night. VERY oddly, soon after the release of MLAR, E and Rude 5 were performing at MADISON SQUARE GARDEN in NYC. Before I ever saw THE OTHER SIDE OF SUMMER played as recorded, this June 1991 evening, he CLEARLY played it as a waltz. And lastly at the 92nd Street Y interview with Bill Flanagan September 2005 evening, PLU was played very sadly, almost funereal. Way far away from the usual uplifting takes. Those are my sentiments...please feel free to ask anytime. Thanks, ba
