Really surprised and delighted he is playing the Cliffs seeing as the last one was only half full and the was with The Imposters.

I reckon it might be all seated this time.

Just my luck Paul Weller and Elvis Costello tickets go on sale on the same day.

It could be another RAH date.

I'm a bit miffed that it's another round of solo shows though. I hope there's a wider range of songs.

Sheeptotheslaughter - there'a a presale for the Weller tickets according to the notification. If I get a link I'll send it to you.

This ties in quite nicely with the First Elvis gig thread for me, as he is playing Harrogate for only the second time. The first time was my first EC gig in November 1984, supported by T Bone Burnett. Nice to go to the same venue 31 years later!

Just waiting patiently and anxiously for a London, possibly RAH, date to be announced.

Though they keep advertising 'Detour' UK leg as being a 21-date tour. Maybe this is it? Surely EC wouldn't cross out the London market. He did say himself at the Bluesfest show he'll be back there in 2015.

Perhaps the concept of "Detour" is that he isn't hitting the big markets but rather playing towns he didn't visit on the 2014 solo tours. He's literally taking a detour around the big cities, perhaps?

Could be. Shame there are no Kent shows. I'm basically unable to attend any of these shows unless I want to spend money and time I don't have buying train tickets and hotel rooms. Bugger.

FrankieJ - can't you get to Southend? If you're in Kent, it shouldn't be too bad or is it a case of train after train after train?

Google maps tells me I can either do: walk - train - bus - ferry - bus - train - train. Or: walk - train - bus - train - train - train.

In other words, I really cannot do that. Hahaha. London has quicker and more straight forward links. When he played Canterbury last year I was reaaaally gutted I missed out. That would have been perfect. *disappointed sigh* :(

Ironically, where I live I can look out to sea and right in the distance is Southend. I live just over the water. Anyone got a rubber dinghy I can borrow?

Thanks to the good people at The Ticket Factory and their pre-sale,managed to bag Row C tickets for Nottingham & Weller at Warwick Arts Centre.Time to be happy today & fret about the credit card bill tomorrow.Somewhat surprised that EC tickets more expensive than Weller's though.Old man Steptoe will be bringing his band with him,not just a hat and a couple of guitars.

These Pre sales are a joke

There is no way that EC has sold all the tickets back to the rear circle blocks J & K at A gaff like Harrogate

They can p__s off with there pre sale tickets

I left them all until tomorrow.

I bagged row G in Manchester direct from the venue, because I'm on their list. £2 booking fee.

Ticket Factory were adding £8 per ticket as a fee, so I will book directly with Harrogate and Nottingham tomorrow. I might be a row or two further back, but those thieving so and so's won't have my money.

No Sheffield show though :(

All the pre sales had gone for Weller in Southend I am going to try first thing today. Failing that I will just have to console myself with a couple of tickets for Elvis..........Not a bad sub
