Elvis Costello, SECC, Glasgow

The Telegraph: Matthew Magee: 14th May, 2012

"Costello’s performance was dark, brooding and movingly intense. These two songs ("Tramp The Dirt Down and "Shipbuilding) were delivered with a malevolent passion that felt specific to this time, this place, these people. It was powerful, polemical and personal, all the more moving for being sandwiched between slices of shallow showground playfulness."
