Hmmmm what should I talk about today?.....
Hows about ELVIS!
I went to the 2012 Elvis in concert tour at Wembley on Saturday night and it was bloody brilliant. For those who haven't heard of the tour it basically is a video projected Elvis (footage from his shows) singing with the original former band mates playing live on stage. Those musicians are no spring chickens now by my god they can sing/play.
In his lifetime Elvis only ever toured in America and Canada, a world tour was an unrequited dream for him (and us his fans) so this tour is doing for Elvis what he never got to do while he was alive.
It was a fabulous night of great music but even better was the atmosphere, thousands of Elvis fans under one roof!
There is nothing better than people watching at an Elvis gig. There were 70 year olds wearing head to toe '68 special' leather, women adorned with pictures of the King, teddy boys, rockabilly gals and lots and lots of dyed black quiffs!
So to all of those I had a chat to on Saturday night that may have found there way here - a huge hello, thanks for making it a brilliant and beautifully eccentric evening.
Big Love and Long Live the King!
