New Zealand continues its lengthy love affair when Elvis Costello, the acclaimed singer-songwriter returns to New Zealand in April 2014 bringing with him The Imposters. Costello for a long time has been a favoured son of New Zealand having toured here around a dozen times since the late 70’s.

Costello will play just one show in Auckland after his already announced festival appearances at Deni Blues & Roots in Deniliquin and Byron Bay’s Bluesfest.

Elvis Costello has followed his musical curiosity in a career spanning almost four decades with a back catalogue of over 40 albums covering nearly every genre of music. He is probably best known for his performances with The Attractions, The Imposters and his solo shows with pianist Steve Nieve.

A swag of nominations and awards litter his historic trail (including Grammy Awards, ASCAP’s prestigious Founders Award, an Oscar Nomination and being inducted into the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame) evidence of the respect and awe this performer commands from his peers. Such diversity and credibility over the decades tells its own story of legend.

Fans will know the wide range of Elvis Costello songs delivered by artists as varied as Johnny Cash, Roy Orbison, Dusty Springfield, George Jones, Robert Wyatt, and the gospel vocal group The Fairfield Four. His has also collaborated with Burt Bacharach, Paul McCartney, The Brodsky Quartet, Swedish mezzo-soprano Sofie Von Otter and record producer/songwriter T Bone Burnett. More recently he gate crashed his own horizons by ‘collaborating’ with The Roots, producing Wise Up Ghost, one of this years finest musical offerings.

Elvis and The Imposters (Steve Nieve, Pete Thomas and Davey Faragher) will present an incredible night of entertainment taking audiences through the Costello musical encyclopedia refresher course with a selection of songs from the past, present and future.

Supported by Tom Lark

Tickets go on sale Thursday 28th November, 9am.
