Due to a momentary weakness by Mrs. Sulky, I may be able to "have permission" to go to this - any spare tickets anyone ?? :D

I'll be back in Dublin so won't make this show. There is , however, a show that night in Dublin that a friend of a friend in NY has urged me to go too. It's by Lafayette, Indiana native David Corley , at Workmans. For his tour of Ireland his band is including on bass one Ms Cait O'Riordan. The weird sequence of seeing Elvis & Cait on succeeding evenings is kind of tantalising in a too-crazy-you-couldn't-make-it-up way. I'll think about.....

I shall be there, somewhere. I have had an odd string of emails this afternoon from See Tickets (through whom I booked) saying:

"Thank you for buying a VIP ticket for Elvis Costello.

You will be able to collect your programme and laminate from the VIP desk by the Box Office from 6.30pm onwards."

Odd, in that I don't remember booking a VIP ticket. I suspect they have sent the email to all who booked not just those who paid the silly prices for the programme and laminate. We shall see.

Where does anyone fancy meeting up beforehand? Any recommended pubs around Oxford Circus?

I got that VIP email as well, despite not buying one.

And then just now I got another one, which I thought would say something like "Sorry, we made a mistake!", but it was same email again!

Ironic because I've been trying to upgrade my ticket unsuccessfully. Going to try for front row again tomorrow, if not I'm in row E.

Lovely weather all week and the one day I do a trip and it's going to piss it down. Typical.

HAVE FUN, ALL! :D

Me too. perhaps there was no takers for the VIP tickets and they are giving them away.

Let me know how you all get on with the VIP treatment

Hi all - am gonna be there, too. Looking forward to seeing you all! The Argyll Arms is diagonally opposite The Palladium - admittedly it's likely to be packed, but it's all I can think of. Or O'Neill's, top of Carnaby Street (Palladium end!)

The Argyll Arms is a good shout but as you say, it'll be packed.

I won't get to the Palladium until 7.30 so I'll probably have a beer in there.

Look forward to seeing you.

This morning brings a string of emails from See Tickets saying:

"You may have recently received an email advising you to collect a VIP package for Elvis Costello at The London Palladium.

Unfortunately due to rare technical error the previous email was issued to all customers booked to attend rather than just VIP customers who have purchased tickets at £95.00 per person.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused, we hope you enjoy the show.
Kind Regards"

So expect a queue of irate punters around the box office.... If you need to collect your tickets, do get there early.

Fortunately I have purchased the £95 ticket so I didn't get this one (unless there is another rare technical error email waiting in the wings).
