Elvis Costello and The Imposters new show "NOW/NOT NOW" will see the live debut of new songs but also a return to what Costello has called the "Hits & Headlines/Waifs & Strays", in other words the very finest and the most familiar songs from his remarkable repertoire.
There will be timeless pop melodies, dramatic piano ballads and solo narrative interludes, all framed by The Imposters renowned rock and soul rave-ups.
For those who want to take a longer vacation, it is thought that a proportion of the set will change from night to night with the first appearance of different new songs, as well as featuring selections from albums such as "My Aim Is True" or "Blood & Chocolate" and many more recent titles.

The performances will be on:
Wed., Feb 28th
Fri., March 2nd
Sat., March 3rd

This year saw Elvis Costello conclude his highly acclaimed solo show, "Detour" with a final European run before being joined by The Imposters for "Imperial Bedroom & Other Chambers", a tour which played across North America during the summer of 2017.
Reviews ranged from a "masterpiece of a show" (OC Register) to "Inspired and energized" (Portland Press Herald) to "Live, he [treats his] songs as organic, dynamic vehicles, and shown himself unafraid to rearrange, reorchestrate and reimagine even his most popular hits." (The Baltimore Sun)
