A rehearsel before the EC/ Blondie tour?
Since you put me down, it seems i've been very gloomy. You may laugh but pretty girls look right through me.

I’d have thought so. They haven’t played together for a little while.

Whether there’ll be any surprises (eg Blondie covers :wink: ) is another story...
It’s such a shame you had to break the heart you could have counted on

This is a very cool addition. Hope some of my cohorts get there. A touch too far for me at 4 hours away. Enjoy all.

This day in history: The Battle of Gettysburg was fought July 1–3, 1863, in and around the town of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, by Union and Confederate forces during the American Civil War. The battle involved the largest number of casualties of the entire war and is often described as the war's turning point.

Lots of US history in this town. Personally, it would be cool to check out this show for many reasons, some being part of my ancestral history.

Happy 4th to the U.S. folk on the board. Peace out, y'all.

Funny enough, Kitten Kuroi instagram has her there a couple two or three days before this show. Maybe tour dress rehearsals at the theater?

That reminds me: Anyone know if we're going to be stuck with the background singers forever? Will we ever see EC & Is as a four-piece again?

It seems that ship has indeed sailed...but, you never know. He does truly value their contribution it appears.

No rare tracks from Trust then but Episode Of Blonde - a magnificent showcase for Steve's talents and probably extra special with backing singers - hope there's a recording somewhere :wink:

I thought it was a really inspired idea to have them on the Imperial Bedroom tour, and they were great. I just wasn't looking for them to be a permanent fixture.

I am guessing while they are still playing the Look Now album the BV's are a regular thing. I have not seen them in the UK as the dates I was due to see last year were cancelled due to his health scare.

I have seen Elvis open with Pump it up. One tour he used to play a noisy solo version to start the show where he would walk through the crowd from the back of the auditorium

There was no encore break before Peace, Love & Understanding. He went from one song right into the other.

LOL....you see, my brother's enjoyment is when he has his Canon. My enjoyment is my beloved brother attending at least one show a tour with me. Fear not, Doc is the man.
