Now I'm wondering if Elvis is going to hang around in California until Hardly Strictly Bluegrass....and do they still have the Richard Delone benefit?

This year's dates for Hardly Strictly Bluegrass are October 5, 6, & 7, 2012

There appear to be no dates yet for a sixth annual Richard de Lone Special Housing Project benefit show, but as there have been five annual shows already, a sixth would seem likely. These are typically around the end of September, beginning of October.

If I get to speak to Elvis after the show tomorrow, I will ask him about his plans for September..

very cool...looking forward to ANY dates as the "dance card" was beginning to look mighty empty when i checked yesterday. and at facebook; Davey had mentioned to me an additional MILWAUKEE Imposters date that i do not see listed as of yet. does anyone have MORE info as you refer to this as the "CALIFORNIA SOLO TOUR" moot? will there be a "NY SOLO TOUR" as well?

I don't have any more information. I called this the California solo tour, as so far it comprises two solo dates in California (Redding and San Luis Obispo). The fact that they are at different ends of the same week makes me think Elvis might play other dates in the area. It would not make sense for him to play any East Coast dates between two West Coast dates. If I can speak to him (or Steve) tomorrow, I will ask them about plans for September.

Is New York due any more EC dates? There were four last year in April and May, which is twice as many as he played in London this year (for example). I know there have been none yet this year, but there are still six months left....

I asked Elvis last night whether he would be adding more dates in California. The gist of his reply was that he had people to manage his bookings, but they didn't always consult him on new dates, so he wasn't sure how many dates he would play, or where or when.

In fairness, if I were him touring Western Europe, I would not want to be thinking about the Autumn in California. We wait to see what turns up or if anyone else can extract further information from him.

What seems sure is that touring is his livelihood and the more dates he can play the more he earns. If he can keep down costs at the same time (by not travelling too far between dates) then all to the good.
Of course it is also the case that touring with a 120 foot tall(allegedly) spinning wheel, a go go cage, society lounge, dancers and "the Hammer of Songs" adds costs which could be avoided. The Revolver Tour has been one of his more popular ventures in recent years, so the costs are offset by additional income.

Enough of the economics of touring already.

I received a post about the Irvine show, but didn't see the SLO announcement. I noticed the Redding show, too. Cool little one-off solo shows in CA. I wonder if he might pop up on the Henry Miller Library concert schedule... that would be cool... Even better and more convenient would be an appearance at HSB. HSB won't be the same without Warren.. It's a rough year for HSB this year.

And Elvis Costello is boring me! 3 hits in two hours doesn't cut it. His voice is great, but these are never-heard songs.


I need to see him only when he plays w his rock band! Srsly dull. I'm ready to leave.
