I've seen Elvis all over Britain and in Sligo - that counts as two different worlds, believe me ! :shock:

Sligo ! That crazy bed & breakfast that we ended up in. And the miserable landlord that tried to guilt trip us in to paying more for the rooms because he could have rented them out for more to couples. Except he hadn't because it was a dump.

The photos made me laugh out loud ! Other memories include walking with John along the river bank on the morning after the gig talking about all the music we loved and the couple on the train from Dublin to Sligo who tried to cover up their newspapers to stop us having a sneaky read . Sligo was really lovely but the hotel was a bit pre war ( Napoleonic I mean :shock: )

Elvis is shedding the hat and the jacket. Will Friday's gig see him in shorts, a t-shirt and a pair of flip flops? :lol:
international laughing stock...

I enjoyed this show. It was fun to see it in the context of Tokyo and EC clearly enjoyed the reactions, especially to the new material, which were highlights!! 2nd song listed as ??? Below was they are not laughing at me now

I sure hear bridge over troubled water in a face in the crowd, maybe it's just me

His voice was a little off and for instance Shipbuilding was a bit ragged for it

To the comment about no posting during the show they seemed to have a block on internet in the hall while the show was on

Really happy to have had the chance to see this show so far away from home!!!
