As we were at the press Conference for the Hellfest we were very late and the fact that we had trouble getting tickets we've missed a good 30 min of the first part.
It's a medium size Zénith and all seated event, Elvis fans are getting older and older... not I'm jocking there are quite a few young people in the audience.
Cool to see that Elvis is still as popular in France specially when he is only on a screen with his band, The TCB playing live.
Lots of musicians on stage there's a classical orchestra led by Joe Guercio, The Imperials (Male Backing vocalists), The Sweet Inspirations (Female backing vocalists) plus the original live band : The TCB minus bass player Jerry Scheff, who's missing for the second time (last show two years ago was Nathan East on bass), this time his substitute is Elvis' session man Norbert Putman.
Of Course Glen D Harding is on piano, Ronnie Tutt on drums & James Burton on guitar.
Norbert Putnam on bass
Complete setlist here.
Most of the footage are coming from "Aloha from Hawaii" & "That's the way it is" with a couple of songs from the "Comeback special '68".
Glen D Harding / Ronnie Tutt/ James Burton
There's a 20 min intermission and a voice is inviting you to get stuff at the merchandising, Remember It's business first.
For the second half in the second set the audience is finally standing up and getting closer to the stage trying to get something signed or to get the best picture of one of the musicians.
The TCB might be getting older and older , they are aging well and can deliver like young kids will do.
great 2 hour show !!!
