Press Release:

ELVIS COSTELLO & THE IMPOSTERS RETURN TO NEW ZEALAND

New Zealand continues its lengthy love affair when Elvis Costello, the acclaimed singer-songwriter, returns to New Zealand in April 2014 bringing with him The Imposters. For a long time Costello has been a favoured son of New Zealand, having toured here around a dozen times since the late 70’s.

Costello will play just one show in Auckland on Sunday 27th April at the The Civic after his already announced festival appearances at Deni Blues & Roots in Deniliquin and Byron Bay’s Bluesfest in Australia.

ELVIS COSTELLO has followed his musical curiosity in a career spanning almost four decades with a back catalogue of over 40 albums covering nearly every genre of music. He is probably best known for his performances with The Attractions, The Imposters and his solo shows with pianist Steve Nieve.

A swag of nominations and awards litter his historic trail (including Grammy Awards, ASCAP’s prestigious Founders Award, an Oscar Nomination and being inducted into the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame) evidence of the respect and awe this performer commands from his peers. Such diversity and credibility over the decades tells its own story of legend.

Fans will know the wide range of Elvis Costello songs delivered by artists as varied as Johnny Cash, Roy Orbison, Dusty Springfield, George Jones, Robert Wyatt, and the gospel vocal group The Fairfield Four. His has also collaborated with Burt Bacharach, Paul McCartney, The Brodsky Quartet, Swedish mezzo-soprano Sofie Von Otter and record producer/songwriter T Bone Burnett. More recently he gate crashed his own horizons by ‘collaborating’ with The Roots, producing Wise Up Ghost, one of this years finest musical offerings.

Elvis and The Imposters (Steve Nieve, Pete Thomas and Davey Faragher) will present an incredible night of entertainment taking audiences through the Costello musical encyclopedia refresher course with a selection of songs from the past, present and future.
