This announcement is reminding me of August 21, 1982. Heck, ELVIS AND IMPOSTERS + BLONDIE would be a nice summer USA amphitheatre double bill any old day.

Hmm...if true, this puts the fall tour a little earlier than I was expecting. Will be too bad if he is playing outdoors in Chicago instead of the Chicago Theatre!!

Oh. nice. Here's hoping they make it to CA, specifically SF because I can just roll over and check out the live show. Fat Fingers crossed.

I wouldn't fret such timing scenarios with this type of appearance. These thingies often times tend to be one offs, rather than mid tour. In fact, IMPOSTERS are not listed. Maybe he only comes out for a solo half hour appearance. In fact Dave, i was thinking the exact opposite. This date kind of does bode well for my three night (IF NOT MORE!) October Port Chester mini residency prediction.

I bet Bruce is working up his vocal talents as we
discuss this - of course he won’t need to rehearse much for the bass :wink:

If it's The Attractions, I can feel a serious debilitating illness requiring U.S. medical help for me for September :wink: !!

This festival has not historically done any official live streaming.

Anyone able to prove me wrong and find some info about this year?

No one from here , it seems.

Social media reports indicate it was typical festival set , the well known songs trotted out for a big crowd. A tweet spoke of leaving early due to bad sound. Others referred to relief at Elvis's good health.

Uh oh....tweeter left early or Elvis left early? It can get ugly when he is pissed about the sound. Can anyone say JONES BEACH 1994?
