Elvis Costello @ Capitol Theater - 11/12/13
Elvis Costello

"I'd like to introduce my special guest for this evening," Elvis Costello said to the audience at the Merriam Theater Sunday night. "It's me."

Indeed, there was not another soul to be found on the Merriam stage, although Costello was kept company by a semicircle of guitars, a keyboard and a few light-up signs: At stage right, one reading "On Air" that played into a bit of stage banter about the show being broadcast in the Faroe Islands, a "Request" sign repurposed from the Spinning Songbook tour, and a one-way sign reading "Detour" that was meant to signal a departure from the evening's announced theme: "Love, and the flip side of that record: deceit and shame."" [Philly.com]

Elvis Costello, who was one of the many artists who played Neil Young's Bridge School Benefit in October not long after he appeared at a benefit we covered in NY which was not long after we saw him at a different benefit in Long Island which wasn't too long after he played Brooklyn Bowl with the Roots, went out on a solo tour that ended last night (11/19) in Maine that continues this week with shows in NJ, CT, PA and more. The above review snippet is from the 11/10 Philly show and we have pictures from the second of two Port Chester, NY shows in this post. More of them along with both Capitol Theater setlists, and all tour dates, below...

Tour didn't end end. He's playing two shows in Morristown, NJ next week.

did he call anyone a "blind, ignorant n-**er" in between songs?

^ Where can I hear your songs? Because you sound like a real peach.

Elvis Costello should start wearing leggings.

I don't write songs. I didn't say I was a better songwriter than him, I said his songs were boring.

I like his hats. Really, I'm bald, so I wear a lot of hats, and I appreciate his taste in hats.

11:20: I thought 11:02 was pretty funny. Certainly a hell of a lot funnier/better than all those rehashed hummus jokes you're probably fond of.
