For the first time in 17 years, legendary singer-songwriter and rock icon Elvis Costello returns to the Sydney Opera House Concert Hall for two electrifying, career-spanning performances.
Marking 45 years since the release of Elvis Costello's debut album My Aim Is True, he's returning to Australia in 2023 following appearances at the 34th Annual Bluesfest in Byron Bay over the Easter Long Weekend.
Among his 600 published titles, Costello is perhaps best known for the songs, “Alison”, “Pump It Up”, “Everyday I Write The Book”, while a popular concert favourite is Nick Lowe's ever-timely “(What's So Funny ‘Bout) Peace Love and Understanding”. He has appeared worldwide with The Attractions, first visiting Australia in 1978, then in solo performance in 1984 and with Steve Nieve in 1999. For the last twenty years he has toured and recorded with The Imposters - Steve Nieve, Pete Thomas, Davey Faragher - and they will be joined on these dates by guest guitarist, Charlie Sexton.
Since the 2017 release of the GRAMMY-winning, Look Now, Costello and co-producer, Sebastian Krys have worked on seven record releases together, including The Boy Named If and The Resurrection Of Rust in 2022.
