Hi All

Anyone going? I just got a Block a Row a Seat 58. I take it that might be near the front as I do not know this venue. Flights and hotel to be booked.

Been to Cork many times but not in recent years. So will have to do some research re location of venue in relation to town.

Thats Sheffield,Liverpool,Southend (standing don't like seating even in my advancing years) and Cork. I an sure I will do more.

I was going to go to Derry the next day but it seems to be a bit of a trail to get there from Cork by Train ir Bus.

Paul McLoone's radio show are giving away tickets for the Cork show all this week. He's ask a question about 10.30 each evening, you text the answer and a winner is announced pretty soon after.

Good Luck!

It'll be interesting to see if Elvis starts popping up on various media outlets here to promote the shows in Ireland. None are sold out so a emphasis on a ' walk up ' audience seems the only option. I will be going to the Westport show. I had all kinds of notions of also going to either Derry or Cork. That isn't happening. After the excellence of the Southend show I feel it would be best to focus on seeing and appreciating one festival show - otherwise it really would be just too much of a good thing!

By the way, Martin (the bro) was , at one stage,thinking of going to Cork. He isn't , having decided to catch the show next month in Barcelona.

Sorry I will not see you in Cork or get the chance to meet Martin.

I am all checked in and ready for a sparrowfart start to tomorrow. Looking forward to a full Irish (plenty of B & W pudding) in the morning and a mug of Barry’s tea. Another front row seat so cannot wait.

Went down to the venue to have look before tonight and its 25 mins walk from the
Bus station in Parnell Square and what a walk , even a bright sunny Cork day
Its a bit sad as its at the back of the port area and you walk down through a industrial estate (fertilizer plant , power station , re cycling centre the site looks like a sunday car boot concrete hard standing, surely there must be somewhere greener in the very pretty city of Cork. Anyone remember the summer pops in liverpool same kind of tent but very much poorer location. Just a solitary security guard and me at 11 this morning so took a few pics through the gate.

So that's the pre amble , am sure the man as always will shine.

Two hours of absolute rock perfection from Elvis Costello in the marquee tonight. "Tramp that Dirt Down" particularly powerful. Great stuff.
