The venue was very nice, great seating with good views. Elvis put on a great show. But the sound was muddy and bottom heavy . Couldn't hear the keyboards at all unless they were the only instrument playing. Everything blended together into a mushy bass-heavy mess. Don't get me wrong, I love the frozen margaritas and skyline chili dogs. But we came for the music, and it wasn't good.

OMG, I'm 66 and I've been a fan of Elvis Costello and Nick Lowe since I was in college in the early 80s. The concert was glorious, the evening was cool and clear. I'd seen them both before, but it was my first time at the Greek Theater. What a lovely venue. My only complaint is that they really need to provide more options for folks with limited mobility. I came in from out of town for the concert, so I didn't have a "disabled" tag for my rental car. We ended up having to park a few miles away and Uber in. Then we reserved an Uber to pick us up. IMHO, the Uber/Lyft/Ride share area is not clearly marked and since wifi is very inconsistent in the area. it's easy to not be able to hook up with your reservation. We ended up taking a cab.

Excellent show with finale of "(What's So Funny 'Bout) Peace, Love, and Understanding" with songwriter Nick Lowe. Surprised Elvis didn’t mention that the original video for that song was filmed in Vancouver back in the ‘70s! Check out the video on YouTube with unmistakable scenes of the Attractions in Stanley Park with the totem poles and north shore mountains in background!

About Elvis Costello

Elvis Costello and The Imposters – Steve Nieve (keyboards), Davey Faragher (bass), Pete Thomas (drums) – have made a sensational new album that ranks alongside the best work this singularly great artist has ever produced.

Recorded in Hollywood, New York City and Vancouver, British Columbia, ‘Look Now’ is beautiful in its simplicity, reflective in its lyrical vision, surrounded by melodies and orchestrations that are nothing short of heavenly. It’s the first album Costello has made with The Imposters since the 2008 release of ‘Momofuku’ and his first new album since the acclaimed 2013 Roots collaboration, ‘Wise Up Ghost’.

Anyone anywhere in the world who has seen Elvis Costello and The Imposters live can testify to their unmitigated swagger. Costello’s suspicion that it was time to return to the studio was confirmed while on the ‘Imperial Bedroom & Other Chambers’ tour of the USA, last summer and he realized the power and sheer musicality of The Imposters had never really been fully captured on one record.

“I knew if we could make an album with the scope of ‘Imperial Bedroom’ and some of the beauty and emotion of ‘Painted From Memory’, we would really have something”, said Costello.

‘Look Now’ is an outstanding 12-strong addition to his song catalogue. Most of the titles were written solely by Elvis Costello although, ‘Don’t Look Now’ and ‘Photographs Can Lie’ were co-written with Burt Bacharach, who makes a guest appearance, leading The Imposters from the piano for those two ballads.

Another song to which Bacharach contributed, ‘He’s Given Me Things’ features some of the best singing Elvis has ever recorded, while ‘Burnt Sugar Is So Bitter’ was written with Carole King and closes with a serpentine horn line winding around Steve Nieve’s atmospheric keyboard parts.

The album was co-produced by Elvis and Sebastian Krys - the Latin Grammy Producer of the Year for 2007 and 2015, whose love and understanding of music spans both hemispheres.

Sebastian had worked extensively with Pete and Davey in the Los Angeles studios, so it’s no surprise that this dynamic rhythm section was incredibly well-prepared for the recording sessions. “When Pete and Davey are in this kind of rare form, it’s wise to get on the back-beat with your Telecaster and stay out of their way”, said Costello.

Speaking of his own role as co-producer, Costello said, “I had all of the orchestrations and vocal parts in my head or on the page before we played a note, so it was essential that I worked closely with Steve Nieve to maintain the light and space in the arrangements and allow him to shine.”

Costello completed the picture by adding both guitar and his own vibraphone or celesta parts to his orchestrations but remarked, “Sebastian was there to make sure only the essential notes got onto the record, whether it was a fuzz-tone guitar or jazz bassoon.”

“In the final mixing, Sebastian did a beautiful job of keeping everything present but always lead by emotion or narrative, although when balancing the band, my voice and the quartet of woodwinds and horns that I’d written for ‘Stripping Paper’, I told him to “Just trust the blur.”
