As part of his “Solo” tour, Elvis Costello will be making a stop in the Palace Theatre at PlayhouseSquare. For the past years, Costello has been playing a month or so of solo dates covering the country region by region bringing his astonishing collection of material. Ten new dates have been announced in the mid-west and mid-south U.S.A. for the tour. Tickets are now on sale.
In Los Angeles in 2012, the OC Register called Costello's solo show "spellbinding" and said that Costello's set list "touched on cornerstone numbers and obscurities of his own, but...also dipped back to pre-Elvis, pre-Beatles, pre-the-other-Elvis and prewar tunes that illustrated his familial roots in the riches of both the Great American Songbook and England’s dance hall and music theater traditions."
In November, 2013, the DCist pointed out that "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." The Washington Post wrote that “Costello showed that real rockers don’t need amplification or sound processors to rock out."
The ten new added dates are as follows
Monday 9th St. Paul, MN - O’Shaughnessy
Tuesday 10th Milwaukee, WI – Riverside Theatre
Wednesday 11th Chicago, IL – Copernicus Center (on-sale April 5th)
