The legend that is Elvis Costello is set to bring his acclaimed live show back to the UK this March for a three-date tour – with stop offs in Edinburgh, Manchester and Sheffield.
The 62-year-old Londoner, whose hits include Oliver’s Army, I Can’t Stand Up For Falling Down and Good Year For The Roses, will visit the Festival Theatre on Saturday, 18 March.
Costello will then play Manchester’s Bridgewater Hall on (Sun 19) and Sheffield’s City Hall (Mon 20).
The trio of dates will be a continuation of his Detour tour, which sees him in playful form in a stripped-back show paying tribute to Sixties light entertainment.
His last major outing prior to this was 2013’s Spectacular Spinning Songbook tour, at which audience members span a gigantic wheel of fortune to decide which songs he’d play.
In 2004, Rolling Stone Magazine ranked him No. 80 on their list of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time.
In 2012, Costello was among the British cultural icons selected by artist Sir Peter Blake to appear in a new version of his most famous artwork – the Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band album cover – to celebrate the British cultural figures of his life that he most admires to mark his 80th birthday.
Elvis Costello plays the following UK dates:
Sat 18 – Edinburgh, Festival Theatre
Sun 19 – Manchester, Bridgewater Hall
Mon 20 – Sheffield, City Hall
