I`m going out on a limb here and guessing that not a single new song will be performed.
Ron, are you shelling out for this? You can let us know.

....Blair!

The Belly Up is just a mile north of me and close to Burt's home here in Del Mar. ... Although I'd like to attend - the local horse racing crowd is in a far better financial position to support this effort and I suspect it will sellout fast. ... Those who labor behind the racing scene are a very dedicated group of people who became local heroes over the past few weeks. .... Hopefully attendees will hear some of the "Painted From Memory" gems and you can be fairly certain that it will include an audience participation sing along of "That's What Friends Are For"

Hope all is well with YOU, Mark and our fellow forum participants as we celebrate the holidays once again! ... Wishing you all the best in 2018!

Ron

Blair, after searching the highways and byways of the internet I've yet to find a review of the show.

Meanwhile I remember arriving home from work on an evening in December '98, switching on the TV and being confronted with Elvis Costello and Burt Bacharach performing live on Channel 4's TFI Friday, just the two of them and just one song.

They should have called the band "The Wild Stallions" for that one night

Well it was benefitting horse breeding, and Bill and Ted had the original band.
Yes I do know things that you dont and I'm staying out of trouble by keeping them to myself.

Regards, David

The amyloid plaque must be building: I can`t even think who "Bill and Ted" are.
And I should never drink and post.

Okay, Blue just enlightened me.
Apologies all around for being too old to get the reference.
I`m going to bed now.

Well ok but David is being a bit too much of a tease for me, as I know he has access to the inner sanctum. So if further secrets aren't promptly revealed, I may be unable to resist posting a picture I found on Instagram which I believe is of David himself......
