Attended the Elvis Costello show with my daughter, at the Royal Theatre last night. Amazing show – the man is such a talent – he played the whole show solo, just him and a range of his favourite guitars. The warm up act, Shelley Harland wowed the audiance also – a great future for this young lady. My only concern was that the Royal Theatre was only half full! What was the cause of this? I can only think to blame the promoters! We bought our tickets about 3 months ago when we saw the ad in the Crimes, but don’t recall seeing any further promotion since. Further to this, I read that his Sydney and Melbourne concerts are sold out and extra shows have been organized. If we want to attract big names to Canberra in future – we really need to fill our venues.
