New deal


Billboard

Elvis Costello is poised to sign with Warner Bros., but parties are still working kinks out of the contract.

Meanwhile, Costello is playing snippets of Kinks, Beatles, Prince, Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, and Chuck Berry during his brief solo tour of U.S. campuses. Nick Lowe opens the shows, also solo, and joins Costello most nights for a duet of "(What's So Funny 'Bout) Peace, Love, And Understanding."

Billboard managing editor Ken Schlager reports that Costello's 2½-hour set April 23 at a sold-out Rutgers Univ. show in Piscataway, N.J., was a knock-out and included an encore of his Spinning Songbook.
