Elvis Costello, who's on tour with Nick Lowe right now, announced that he's doing a 10-show residency in NYC next year, happening at Gramercy Theatre and beginning in February. He told Jimmy Fallon: "I’m gonna print a list of 10 songs a night that’s gonna give you the clue of what that night’s gonna be like, and the other 10 songs I’m gonna play are a secret. So you’ll never hear the same song twice, it’s gonna be 200 songs over 10 nights."
