Heaton and Abbott are probably the bigger draw in the UK now I am afraid. They look like they are playing to decent crowds on the 'forestry live' circuit and have had two decent selling albums in the last couple of years.

Not wanting to get to ahead of things, but I hope there is a contingency plan should a clash with an important football match arise.

Should Eng-er-land win their group and their next knockout match they could be facing Germany again :shock: at 7pm that night.

Panic over, as neither of those things happened. In an evening of great football but not a lot of drama, England lost to Belgium, but the match was an academic exercise anyway as both teams were already through to the next stage. By losing that match, England get Colombia in the next round, which is arguably a slightly tougher call than Japan (who will be Belgium's opponents) but there's not much in it.

The previous day, in an evening of pretty ropey football but high drama/great entertainment, Germany bowed out of the group-stage (for the first time since there has even been a 'group stage'), largely by having no strategy other than to lob the ball forward and see who could run the fastest to pick it up. South Korea, God love them, appeared to have the same strategy, but having younger players and a bit of luck on their side, they carried the day.

All of which means that if England beat Colombia, they will face Sweden or Switzerland on Saturday 7th July. The only thing that might distract people on Friday 6th (in the evening) is Brazil/Mexico versus Belgium/Japan. If that turns out to be Brazil/Belgium (or even if it turns out to be Mexico/Belgium) it could be an interesting scrap, but mainly of interest to football aficionados rather than England supporters as such. In the bizarre event that it turns out to be Mexico/Japan, only your hardcore West Ham and Leicester fans would be remotely interested.

I'm really sorry to hear this for all of my friends who were going. It'll still be a good gig but not so good for those specifically going to see Elvis. :(

He's tweeted that full explanation will be given after tomorrow's show in Amsterdam.
Hope things are not too serious.

Elvis Costello Pulls Out Of Manchester Sounds Of The City Show Due To Illness


Elvis Costello has been forced to pull out of this year's Sounds of the City series in Manchester due to illness.

Buzzcocks will replace the singer-songwriter, who was due to perform with Paul Heaton and Jacqui Abbott at the Castlefield Bowl on July 6. Heaton confirmed the news with a statement issued to his official Facebook page.

For fans who were hoping to see Costello and are now unable to attend, a full refund will be available from point of purchase.
Since you put me down, it seems i've been very gloomy. You may laugh but pretty girls look right through me.

15 days? They're bastards aren't they? Bet it didn't take them 15 days to take your money when you booked. 15 seconds, more like.

I'm proud to say it was going to be a magnanimous gesture so the cancellation means I actually get a refund - bit of a result really !

I can personally vouch for Sulky's magnificent magnaniminity iro the still-going-ahead at-the time appearance in Mudchester. Sadly subsequently rained off.

I'm with ticketline for these, and they're telling me 3-5 days. Which is still iniquitous, but a lot better than your quote of 15 days.
