Elvis, solo, plays Llandudno, Cymru, 7 June 2015

Postby Man out of Time » Mon Jun 01, 2015 10:45 am

Elvis makes his first visit to Llandudno on 7 June as part of his "Detour 2015". Aptly named in this case.

Whoever decided that what was needed in between shows in Harrogate and Gateshead (which are 80 miles apart), was a show in Llandudno (141 miles South west of Harrogate) obviously wasn't looking at a map at the time.

So this should sort the casual fans from the die-hards: Who's going?

I don't live in Llandudno now, but having spent the first twenty-five years of my life there, and about half of those dreaming that one day Elvis Costello would play in Llandudno, yes, I will be there. How could I not? :)

Just been to check out the venue. Elvis was soundchecking but was so faint I couldn't make it out. Could've been "One Bell Ringing". It's a quaint town and a balmy summer evening. I wonder how Elvis will relate his Blackpool anecdote that is "Ghost Train" to the people of this seaside town ?

More to follow..

Just in from the show. With no support tonight it was pure Elvis. A shade over 2 hours. Managed to get a stage set hinting at songs still to feature on the tour. No real surprises, a debut for Temptation on this tour with a few bars tagged on from Booker T & The MGs. Also got a guitar pick and had a few words with Elvis with a handful of other fans outside. More to follow, but I suppose you want to know the set.

Waiting to go on stage to tune his piano, once The Legend that is Elvis Costello finishes his sound check!

Great to meet and tune for Elvis Costello this evening.

Thankyou! Had a great time. Enjoyed it a lot more than Harrogate mainly due to the more enthusiastic audience. Either Side of the Same Town also made an appearance which is always going to score a few extra points in my book!

Elvis told me last night that he loved the venue.
I might be gone for a while if you need me
