No way! I think I'm still signed up for his e-mail list so hopefully can get in on a presale again. Elvis in a small place is so amazing.

I saw him at the House Of Blues a few years ago. This is the "Visa Signature Presents" series. It was great I am on the House Of Blues emailing list, and I got that email today. Hubby, who's an Elvis fan, didn't even know about it. And he occasionally checks the Elvis site(s) for news of shows and stuff. So I was shocked. I will PM you the link I have bookmarked.

snack blog: elvis costello performed "where the streets have no name" at the food bank for nyc gala honoring edge on monday
" ...The gala raised funds for the Food Bank's mission to feed 250,000 hungry New Yorkers daily. That's one in five, for anyone doing the math. The evening's take was more than 1.2 million dollars. It's corny and a cliche, but The President, The Edge, Michael Stipe and Stanley Tucci were all correct when they said, "One person can make a difference."

Denis Leary announced the final surprise of the evening: a performance by Elvis Costello. He took the stage with acoustic guitar in hand and sang "Where the Streets Have No Name", with a bit of "Blowin' in the Wind" mashed-up in the middle. Standing ovation ..."

If anyone finds this, please let me know. I get to see him live next week

Just thought I'd do a thread on Elvis.

I originally got into him when I was browsing my mum's CD collection and stumbled upon The Very Best Of Elvis Costello and The Attractions.

I think Mr. Costello has slipped into my third favourite artist spot behind U2 and David Bowie.
wow this thread is a year old. your mum has good taste. so where does arcade fire rank?
i got into elvis and joe jackson at about the same time... back in the day.

Elvis Costello rocks. I was aware of him but after he appeared in "De-Lovely" singing "Let's Misbehave" I began to check out his music. Then when he became a supporter of Katrina musicians I really became a fan.
He's witty, intelligent, wistful, a rocker, and an all-around cool guy.

I've played The River in Reverse until it's almost worn out. I downloaded the Marian McPartland interview on iTunes and listen to that frequently. Of course one of my fave cuts on the Tony Bennett Duets CD is with Elvis -- "Are You Having Any Fun?" I love the line, "The squirrels save and save and what do they get? Nuts!"

The one thing I don't get: Diana Krall. She, to me, is uniformly bland and soulless and being married to him hasn't helped. Totally do not understand the attraction, and yet there must be one. Because he's a Brit and she's Canadian?

I like his contribution to the Tony Bennett CD as well. My mom asked me to buy it for her since they don't have a Target in their area, and I agreed to on the condition that she'd let me open it and rip the Bono duet into iTunes. I ripped that song and the duet with John Legend, too.

Elvis Costello is on a very short list of performers I love who I haven't gotten to see yet. There are plenty of acts I wouldn't mind seeing, but he's a must. Also on that list is Lou Reed, plus Emmylou Harris and Lucinda Williams doing full sets, since I saw one on a package tour and one do a very short opening set.

I really respect his range, and he's an amazing songwriter. I need to get around to seeing De-lovely. I'm more interested in the musician cameos than I am much else, but I do like Kevin Kline most of the time, so I might enjoy it.

also:

From listserv -

Shorefire Media's calendar says Elvis will be on Letterman Friday the 18th. I presume this means Friday night/Sat morning at 1230, as opposed to Thursday night/Friday morning.

This is probably going to be taped earlier that week, since Elvis is in DC on the 18th.


I think Letterman tapes 2 shows on Thursday, and airs the 2nd on Friday. Either way, something to look forward to

found this over on the EC forum:

Here's an APPROXIMATE setlist, entirely from memory. I've undoubtedly jumbled the order a bit, but all the songs should be there:

Welcome To The Working Week
Shabby Doll
The Beat
Lovers Walk (!)
Party Girl
Strict Time (!)
Big Tears
Clubland
Beyond Belief
Shallow Grave
Kinder Murder
Alibi
Watching The Detectives
American Gangster Time (new song! I'm guessing the title)
Lipstick Vogue - with a line from American Girl for some reason
Watch Your Step - with a couple lines from Secondary Modern
Riot Act - last song of the main set

Encores (three sets of them -- yes, EC is back to that old trick):

Dissolve
Uncomplicated
The Imposter (!)
All I've Got To Do (the Beatles song! a highlight)
High Fidelity
Man Out Of Time
(I Don't Want To Go To) Chelsea - new arrangement
Radio, Radio
Pump It Up
Alison - EC solo
Little Triggers
Motel Matches
(What's So Funny 'Bout) Peace, Love And Understanding?

I don't remember the new song in enough detail to describe it, but I very much want to hear it again. EC introduced it as being "about a mercenary bastard."

EC turned over his guitar at the end of "Motel Matches" to show off the "Forget Iraq, Rebuild New Orleans" sticker he got from John O.

Shame he won't be swinging by the Montreal International Jazz Festival this year. I saw him at Place des Arts last year with Allen Toussaint and they played for nearly three hours!

There were two encores, I think, and enough people left the venue after the first ended that the devotees (myself included) made it right down to the stage.
