Elvis Costello has announced thirteen new "Solo" North American tour dates, dubbed "Detour" which will travel through the Mid-West and Southern U.S., after commencing on March 1st in Boulder, Colorado and concludes in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida on March 18th.
These have been some of the most adventurous and lauded performances of his career.
The Louisville Courier-Journal remarked that these solo tours "have given him opportunity to dig deep into one of modern music's deepest and most intensely satisfying catalogs.”
The New York Times said of his first ever appearance at Carnegie Hall in June 2014, “Costello offered something else: a continuing, challenging, intimate engagement with his songs, old and new.”
A short time later The Argus said of his Bexhill-On-Sea show, “Costello drew upon his astonishing catalogue of classics. The results were electrifying.”
His recent five-week solo tour of Europe, took Costello from the legendary l’Olympia in Paris to his Hungarian debut at the Bela Bartok National Concert Hall in Budapest.
He was said to have “enchanted” his Viennese audience, unsurprisingly as one of his German reviews referred to him as “a necromancer and a right geezer”.
The Gaffa newspaper in Denmark noted, “Costello can easily entertain a room for two and a half hours with no instruments other than voice, guitar, piano, lights and a handful of anecdotes”
A review from Dublin claimed, “Vocally, he is as good as he has been in years”, an opinion shared by the Sydsvenskan which wrote of his Malmo appearance, “He sang superbly through the evening: from whispers to soul-tinted falsetto.”
The Globe and Mail described his last show at Massey Hall, Toronto as "Simply brilliant", his Atlanta date was declared, "Pure entertainment with a side of brilliance" by AXS
This is a show not to be missed.
