Elvis Costello has added twelve new solo dates, ten in the mid-west and mid-south and two at Carnegie Hall, his first full shows at the classic venue.
Costello's solo shows have been universally acclaimed for the breadth of material that he plays from his own extensive catalog to music that influenced him from the U.S. and U.K. entertainment past.
The publication The DCist said last November 'It'd be tough to name another songwriter who's produced as much original material over the last 35 years, and it's impossible to name another who mines his back catalog as equitably onstage. Most artists have only a handful of songs they'll ever play from any particular album. With Elvis, any tune he's ever released is fair game.'
Costello will also make his Carnegie Hall debut during this leg of his tour. Although he played at the venue in 2001 with Spinal Tap, this is the first time that his name has been on the marquee.
