Share This:

Elvis Costello via websiteElvis Costello fans should get their calendars out. The singer-songwriter has announced West Coast U.S. solo “Detour” dates for spring 2016. Confirmed dates are below with more to be announced.

These dates are Costello’s first since the release of his best-selling memoir, Unfaithful Music & Disappearing Ink (Blue Rider Press/Penguin Random House).

EC’s fans will also soon be able to enjoy DVD and Blu-ray editions of Detour Live at Liverpool Philharmonic Hall, a concert film captured during the English musician’s acclaimed 2015 solo tour. The release arrives February 12th via Eagle Rock Entertainment.

Set in a 1960s style living room, a giant television screen broadcasts family photographs and portraits of Costello’s heroes for a solo show like no other – not only a journey through his vast repertoire of songs, set to both guitar and piano, but an intimate portrait of his songwriting process, family life and career. The set mixes solo renditions of classics like “Shipbuilding,” “Accidents Will Happen,” “Alison,” and “(What’s So Funny ‘Bout) Peace, Love and Understanding” with more recent numbers like “Church Underground” and “Jimmie Standing in the Rain.” Twentysomethings Rebecca and Megan Lovell of Atlanta roots rock band Larkin Poe join Costello for several tunes.
