Costello's solo dates over the last several years are lauded by critics and fans, called "unforgettable" and "The best showcase of [Elvis'] talent to date."
Performing with guitar and piano in front of a giant television set on which are projected family photos, mysteries, mottos and other mischief, Costello sings his best known songs and the hits of tomorrow in a way that is both intimate and vividly emotional.
The show turns in a moment from gravity to humor, the singer pauses only to tell tales about his songs. These dates are Costello's first since the release of his best-selling memoir "Unfaithful Music & Disappearing Ink" (Blue Rider Press/Penguin Random House).
