Elio Pace - Wednesday 30th October - The Capitol, Horsham

Two Liner: Another Elio show where he plays 2 complete Billy Joel Albums - this time "Storm Front" and "The Stranger". Excellent as always apart from the over the top constant fawning towards the special guest guitarist - David Brown (ex-member of Billy's band) which verged on the embarrassing (including for David by the look of it).
