Elvis Costello Takes Another ‘Detour’
Acclaimed Solo Show Returns February & March 2017

Elvis Costello takes his acclaimed Detour solo show for another spin next February & March 2017 with dates in Europe and the UK.


Critics round the globe have waxed lyrical about this incredibly entertaining walk through Elvis Costello’s amazing life and back catalogue:

“….There seemed to be a little extra Scouse tang to his accent than usual as held court with his guitar in front of a giant vintage TV set. The television displayed a test card – something which only people of a certain age will remember. Overlaying the screen were pictures highlighting memories of his childhood, his musical and cultural influences as well as old snaps of his family. The concept worked well as Costello stiched his songs into a narrative of recollections and anecdotes.” Manchester Evening News, Andy Cronshaw 11/6/15

“By the time Sixties footage of his dad looking the very spit of Costello’s screens, as the singers brothers appear for harmonies freighted with fraternal emotion, this gig has become more deep-rooted English feelings than punk. The GI Bride heartbreaker ‘American Without Tears’ blurs into the clubland numbness of ‘Pump It Up’ into ‘Brother Can You Spare A Dime’ then ‘Oliver’s Army’ treads again on live danger-lines of race, joblessness, and false patriotism. Costello used to sneer with righteous rage. Now he is a profound showbiz veteran, from a country which should embrace him again.” The Independent, Nick Hasted
