Is this the first solo "You Belong To Me" since the 1977 Capital Radio performance?

Great show again last night although his voice was slightly croakier than it was in Birmingham.

You Belong To Me was a surprise and When I Was Cruel was a treat.

Matthew Met Mary was new announced as a new song by Bob Dylan that he knows nothing about.

Elvis totally messed up Shipbuilding. He seemed to lose his place and went to the end of the song before going back to the middle again. The piano playing went off too. Still, no complaints about the rest of the gig. Elvis really seemed to be enjoying it and cramming in as much as he could.

It was my 40th time seeing him last night. Not a great achievement considering I first saw him on the Stiff tour in 1977. So it averages just over one gig per year. Still, I thought I commemorate it ...

It's good to see 7 different songs from Brighton. Hopefully Elvis is hitting his stride...

"Just a Memory"- now there is a chestnut I have never heard live in all my years of shows. Quite nice to see that one pop up.

Killer photo. Has anyone ever told you that you look like the other half of Tenacious D - Kyle Gass? Enjoy the rest of the tour.

Agreed. Shame it didn't have the "I count the pages" verse though. Maybe he's saving that for another time...

Interesting to see the TelePrompTer as well.
