Why see Elvis Costello?

back on the road

An icon of new wave, Brit Elvis Costello is out on the road again this year, bringing that distinctive voice, lyrical wit and catchy hooks to a venue near you. First coming to prominence in 1977 with debut album 'My Aim Is True', Costello (real name Declan McManus) has been steadily making music ever since, with classic hits including 'Alison', 'Oliver's Army', 'She', 'Pump it Up' and more.

In addition to his enviable career in music (Costello has worked with everyone from Burt Bacharach to the Foo Fighters,) he's also forged ahead creating movie soundtracks, nabbing acting roles and doing charity work. Don't miss this punk-hearted musical chameleon at one of his fantastically fun live dates.

The Genius of Elvis

If you were looking to see and hear the Elvis Costello songbook in classic form, you might’ve been disappointed. If you were looking for more of the incredible talent and range that we have been accustomed to, you were blown away. The unique orchestrations weaving a newly featured 4 piece horn section into and throughout the entire show. The songbook was on full display from Posession from Get Happy to Mr and Mrs Hush on Look Now, Elvis’s voice was in fine form singing w/ Steve Nieve’s beautiful keyboard on Accidents will happen and Shipbuilding. At almost 70 years old, Elvis continues to rewrite the classics and in my opinion, we are fortunate to bear witness. ... Read more

Epic night 8- Grammercy

Being 2 years older than Deklan, I am in awe of his stamina as he rocked 2.75 hrs. Straight with only brief water breaks!?the theme might have been love, but just a guess in my part. Always the poet and musician first, the performance was perfect in every way. Though I’ve read “voice” issue notes, his was powerful after two songs , and never wavered. The show was reminiscent of American Utopia by David Byrne in its coordination, style, meaning, and level of energy. This was a memory maker fir me, and I’m picky about praise. Elvis and Steve the world renowned pianist brought a level of intensity not seen in live performances often. The young wind instrumentalists were at a level that was surprising. The holding of sax notes was truly impressive. Praise lads for a the experience 🙏👍😎 ... Read more

Decades after his prime, Elvis still is the finest musician of his generation

Fantastic set, at the amazing Fox Theatre. Spare stage, emphasis on music. Great to see Steve and Pete still in fine form. Opened the show with a Rockpile tune, and played a real eclectic set. Loved the new version of Brilliant Mistake. Awesome to see him again after all these years. ... Read more
