Elvis & The Imposters, Newcastle upon Tyne, June 25, 2018

Postby Man out of Time » Fri Mar 16, 2018 12:40 pm

Another date added to the UK Tour with The Imposters.

https://www.theatreroyal.co.uk/whats-on/elvis-costello-and-the-imposters

Not at The Sage in Gateshead this time, but across the Tyne at Newcastle City Hall. Elvis last played there (with The Imposters) in 2002.

Watched Elvis and the Attractions many times at the City hall, my first show was March 22nd 1978, 40 years ago this week and was hooked. May try and go see my mum and get to attend this one for old times sake!

Elvis I think only worries when its Liverpool. We went to the RFH many years ago when England had a match in Turkey and we thought he would watch that. When we got in he had already been on 20 minutes

SPOILER ALERT. !!

After a pretty dynamic gig with lots of variations in the set list , Elvis seemed to have got a slight creak in his voice , apparent on Shipbuilding and also slightly in Alison but not so much in the finale of PLU and PIU but when we met him backstage he was only speaking in a whisper and looks tired and drawn - just hoping a day off will revitalise his voice for Southend and Plymouth - don’t let my hometown gig get cancelled !! The audience was more responsive than Edinburgh and Elvis said he’d always enjoyed playing in Newcastle and that sometimes he said a flip comment but that this time he really meant it. The opening salvo was changed to Wonder Woman, Mystery Dance and a stunning Clubland ( Elvis says he’d stolen this from Stung, no doubt a reference to a local boy and the chord sequence of Message In A Bottle) but Clubland has the most sophisticated of lyrics - a long time personal favourite !
Steve also stood out in Talking On The Dark and Elvis and the girls did a slow, slow grind on I Can’t Stand Up turning it into a chilling power ballad - and please may I keep Briana Lee so she can sing to me whenever I want her too - Kitten is amazing but Briana’ s husky low notes give me goosebumps . So a bit of a worry with Elvis and a bit of an anxious time ahead - just hope and pray he gets the rest he needs - however long that takes and no matter what he may or may not need to cancel ! :|

The other snippet is Ray Charles' "I Believe To My Soul."

My excuse is, it’s easier to upload a quick clip from a phone than to edit one complete wav file fir a concert but the cancellations mean Cardiff, Edinburgh and Newcastle should be up on a certain currency website by the weekend !

Thanks for the EC snippet of RC 'IBTMS'.

Posted my recording of this show on a certain torrent site and received a cryptic comment from Toasttoast - anyone any idea if this is Chris keeping an eye on the 40 year anniversary uploads and any other EC live material that may be in circulation ?

Think that is an imposter! Toasttoast's profile is showing as a USA national - our pal "Toast" gives his 'place' as Liverpool in his Twitter profile. BTW I have no idea what Toasttoast's comment related to - I'd describe as incoherent rather than cryptic!
