Elvis Presley is the OG hunk of burning love, and last night’s Melbourne performance of Elvis – The Wonder of You was the closest thing anyone would ever get to seeing the man himself live.

I find myself sitting in QPAC, eyes half closed. I’m moving through springtime, by a babbling brook. I’m gazing from a snowy summit, blistering winds gazing my face faster than coarse sands. But all the while, just in my peripheral, I can see these damn yellow sneakers. They follow me through the foothills. They sit by the babbling brook, shoestrings snaking into the edge of the ripples. A thousand reflections of yellow hang in dew drops on autumn trees. Bloody Nigel Kennedy and his unfathomable style follow you through every note.... Read More | Share it now!
