Who doesn’t love classic Elvis Costello. Almost as good as he was when he played in 1980. A true showman!

Awesome show... chops are incredible... hasn't lost a thing.Band was on fire!!!
Probably didn't need to be as loud as they were. Symphony hall acoustics are amazing. Still 2 1/2 hours of the hits, plus the entire Imperial Bedroom album. Musicianship rules. I wonder if Elvis gets royalty every time he mentions Steve Naive....

Around '93 I saw a program on Swedish television about the release of an album called 'The Juliette Letters'. It was a collaboration between a string quartet and this nerdy looking guy in glasses. I had never heard of either. Then again, I wasn't very old. It blew me away! Especially the quality of the lyrics. This was my first meeting with the lyrical genius of Elvis Costello. I came to love his music, and even more so his lyrics, and I even convinced my girlfriend to name our daughter after one of his songs — Alison. And last night I got to see him perform his one-man show 'Detour' at the Concert Hall here in Gothenburg. He liked the acoustics so much that not only did he go all-out unplugged and play two songs walking around in the audience, he even sat down amongst us. One of those two songs was 'Alison'. He also gave a beautiful rendition of 'Shipbuilding' and went completely ballistic with the delay pedal on 'Watching the Detectives', another two favorite songs of mine. He closed the show with Nick Lowe's '(What's So Funny 'Bout) Peace, Love, & Understanding', a question as relevant today as ever. One of the best evenings I ever had!

This was of Elvis's many fine shows, but one of my favorites. Like all the greatest entertainers, he buys more than a show on. His show is a love affair with music made possible with an improbable band. His songs have not only stood the test of time, he is one of the few punk rollers to cross over, to every genre of music. He is the king.
