EC STILL ROCKING

Oh come on! Is anyone really going to hate an Elvis Costello concert. He was in fine voice with plenty of energy. He played a nice mix of new stuff and old classics. Steve Nieve was still great on the keys. He played for almost 3 hours, including a couple encores. He finished up with Peace, Love and Understanding. It's pretty hard to beat that. He had a couple gals singing backup which kept things lively. It was the usual great EC show.

MUSIC GREAT, ACOUSTICS TERRIBLE

I love Elvis, but unfortunately his songs sounded really muddled tonight. I kept moving to find better sound and finally a good spot downstairs about 3/4 of the way through. Enjoyed it so much more after that.

ELVIS COSTELLO WILTERN

Well the man is a legend and I personally think one of the greatest songwriters of our generation. He has an amazing voice especially after all these years. There were points where he did get a little pitchy as one of the other reviewers mentioned. I think this might be more about him changing the vocal arrangements to keep it fresh for him. I am a huge fan and love his voice and songs. I wish that he would have played 1 or 2 of the classics in the original arrangements but I know he must be tired of playing the old hits. Over all great show

EC VOICE WAS AMAZING

Elvis still has it! 3 hours of energy and great music. The downside was that the sound system wasn't set properly with an over abundance of bass which made it rather rough to listen to the first 60 percent of the concert. Luckily the bass was set so high that feedback was occurring and the sound techs finally figured out to make an adjustment which made the latter part of the concert much more pleasant. But the musicians and backup singers were awesome, Elvis was amazing losing very little of his voice from his prime. All in all, it was great to see him, and he is still amazing.

ELVIS

Born in the UK with my teenage years in the 70's, Elvis was a hero of mine, yet I never attended any concerts of his in the UK, all these years later and now resident in KY, I ventured last minute to watch him, I was in the gods so the sound and sync were certainly not assisting in anyway and when singing along found myself a couple of words ahead, nevertheless he's earned his stripes and can sing at whatever pace he likes, he's still the man. The one slight grievance, he said trust him, he will play everything, no Chelsea or Olivers Army:(
