Elvis Costello, real name Declan McManus, is an English singer, songwriter and musician from London, who's known as one of the stand-out acts that dominated the British punk and new wave scene throughout the 1970s and 1980s.
He released his debut album, ‘My Aim Is True’, in 1977, and formed The Attractions as his backing band shortly after, though he currently performs with the Impostors. His second album, ‘This Year's Model’, followed in 1978, and his third album, ‘Armed Forces’, was released in 1979, and featured his most successful single, Oliver’s Army.
He’s released over 20 more records including ‘Imperial Bedroom’, in 1982, and ‘The Juliet Letters’, in 1993. His latest record ‘Wise Up Ghost’ came out in 2013, and was a collaboration with The Roots. In 2003 he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Despite boasting a career that spans over 40 years, he’s showing no signs of stopping and manages to maintain a fresh and relevant image whatever the date. This is one of the qualities that has allowed him to remain a highly-respected live performer well into the 2010’s, and why he’s still getting booked for massive gigs and festival slots too.
Unfortunately, Costello had to cancel his 2018 European tour due to health reasons, but is gearing up for a North America tour in autumn. Catch him live by checking out the tour dates and ticket information on Stereoboard below.

‘Look Now’, Elvis Costello’s first solo album in eight years, is an excellent outing for the veteran songwriter. As a collection it’s rich, classy and able to demonstrate his distinctive talent for writing complex narratives full of emotional jeopardy and black humour.
