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, ĎMy Aim Is Trueí, in 1977, and formed The Attractions as his backing band shortly after, though he currently performs with the Impostors. His second album, ĎThis Year's Modelí, followed in 1978, and his third album, ĎArmed Forcesí, was released in 1979, and featured his most successful single, Oliverís Army.
Heís released over 20 more records including ĎImperial Bedroomí, in 1982, and ĎThe Juliet Lettersí, in 1993. His latest record ĎWise Up Ghostí 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, heís 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 2010ís, and why heís 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.
