Buffalo show reveals The Police still have what it takes


Jeff Miers

(extract)

All of this would’ve been enough even without a torrid opening set from Elvis Costello and the Imposters. That band might’ve stolen the show, had not a trio as hot as the Police followed.

Happily, Costello and his cohorts — drummer Pete Thomas, keyboardist Steve Nieve and bassist/harmony vocalist Davey Faragher — offered a serious dose of Momofuku, the album released (on vinyl only) last week. The new material simply kicked butt, and Costello fearlessly opened with a tune from it, the bluesy “Stella Hurt.”

There were the hits, of course, in the form of “Watching the Detectives,” “Allison,” “Every Day I Write the Book” and the slightly more obscure “I Don’t Want To Go To Chelsea,” to satisfy the crowd, which accorded Costello and company a warm reception.

This was a truly wonderful show.
