Two tickets secured for me and VG - we're also aiming to re-enact the D-Day landings and somewhat prematurely endear ourselves to the French by continually referring to the 200th anniversary next year of The Battle Of Waterloo, where VG plays the Iron Duke and I take the role of Napoleon Legsapart :lol: :roll:
Our prime reason for this little European jaunt of course is the assumption that a certain Parisian pianist might just make an appearance !

Good turnout so far.

Can anyone recommend a good hotel or is it down to pot luck through the interweb?

I'll ask the bro - he's been there a few times lately & is fond of his comforts so he'll probably have a good idea.

From Steve Nieve's f/book -

Steve is 'opening' for Elvis in Paris & Brussels in October. Yeah, right...as if he won't be back on stage with Elvis for at least part of his set!

I've just been contacted completely out of the blue by a board member called verena who lives in Paris. She used to be on the board years ago.

She once had the bravery to come to a meet up in London on her own whilst she was visiting a friend in London. After she introduced me to tea at the Savoy, I then proceeded to take her to the Coal Hole pub with about 8 board members for a quiet afternoon drink...

She's obviously never forgotten it and is going to the Paris show. She never got to see Elvis live as the show she was due to see was cancelled. Let's hope Elvis puts on a great show AND that she gets to meet him.

Great set alright, Steve being there was an extra treat. EC marked his dad's birthday with a nice link about him before Ghost Train, and thanked Steve for allowing them to do Birds Will Still Be Singing, apparently Ross' favourite EC song. EC in great voice & form as well, excellent sound, lovely venue, well worth the trip.
