Elvis & The Imposters play Symphony Hall, Birmingham, March 18, 2020

Postby Man out of Time » Sun Sep 22, 2019 11:43 am

The JustTrust UK 2020 tour concludes at the wonderful Symphony Hall in Birmingham on Wednesday March 18, 2020. This will be Elvis's eleventh appearance at Symphony Hall and the fourth Imposters' show there. Given the venue only opened in 1991 this is a testament I think to the acoustic qualities of the venue and its great sight-lines.

Currently the area around Symphony Hall is a building site, but hopefully things will have improved by March.

In the lead up to announcing details of the UK Tour, Elvis tweeted a series of images on Twitter as clues to the venues. This clue is a Belgian cinema poster (in French and Dutch) for the 1968 Clive Donner directed comedy "Here We Go Round The Mulberry Bush". The film is based on a novel by Hunter Davies, better known for his authorised biography of The Beatles. It was meant to point to Birmingham, although you may be unsurprised to learn that no one on the Fan Forum guessed that.

According to Elvis, this image was a clue to Birmingham band - The Spencer Davis Group, who provided the soundtrack.

The website Whatsonlive has this to say about the show...

"Elvis Costello & The Imposters bring their new UK tour to Birmingham

Elvis Costello & The Imposters bring their Just Trust 2020 tour to Birmingham.

Declan Patrick MacManus, better known by his stage name Elvis Costello is an English pop/rock musician, singer, songwriter, composer, record producer, author, television presenter, and occasional actor.

He has won multiple awards in his career, including a Grammy Award and has twice been nominated for the Brit Award for Best British Male Artist. In 2003, Costello and the Attractions were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. In 2004, Rolling Stone ranked Costello number 80 on its list of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time.

Elvis Costello & The Imposters play Symphony Hall on 18 March 2020.

Tickets go on sale on 20 September. "

I will be there for the tour closing show, who else will be going?

Hi

Unfortunately I can’t make this gig so I have a Row BB (2nd row stalls) seat for sale.

The upside/downside is that you’ll be sat with Goon Squad.

The ticket price with fees was £100 but I’ll take a reasonable offer. I can sell it back to the venue but I’d rather it went to a forum member.

PM me if you are interested.

Only got mine through Viagogo and that was last week.
I did book one through the pre-sale which is going spare (if it ever arrives !)

Contact AXS. They’ve been a nightmare. Not sure it’s the same for Birmingham, but I got a ticket for Southampton in the AXS presale and they decided a few weeks ago suddenly that the tickets will be left at box office to collect. No reason why. Just that “the promoter wanted that” and you can’t do anything about it. Contacted the BO and they said they didn’t even have the tickets yet, so you can’t even ask them directly to post.

I've not received mine either - booked through the AXS presale. Not a ticket agency I can now recommend...

I received an email to say the tickets should be here within a week of the gig. It's still early days.

I'm not panicking but I'm not going to the gig so I need to get the tickets to goon squad and the lady I sold the ticket to.

I've always found AXS to be very good.

I'm not sure if it was pre sale or not but I booked with AXS for Manchester and the tickets came a few weeks ago.

AXS confirmation email said:
If you have not received your tickets 3 days prior to the event please contact us on 0203 481 55 06.

Since you put me down, it seems i've been very gloomy. You may laugh but pretty girls look right through me.
