CLEVELAND, Ohio – Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Elvis Costello added 10 dates to his “Elvis Costello – Solo’’ tour, and one of them is at Playhouse Square’s Palace Theatre.
The witty and prolific singer-songwriter, who has crossed the boundaries from opera to punk to symphonic to even ballet, will visit Cleveland on Monday, June 16.
Tickets to the show, $10 to $75, plus fees, go on sale at 11 a.m. Friday at the PlayhouseSquare box office, online at playhousesquare.org and by phone at 216-241-6000.
Costello and his band, the Attractions, were inducted into the Rock Hall in 2003. He has collaborated with everyone from Sir Paul McCartney to Burt Bacharach to T Bone Burnett and Allen Toussaint.
Of late he’s been involved in a songwriting partnership with wife Diana Krall. He wrote six songs on her album, “The Girl in the Other Room.’’
He’s been nominated for Grammys more than a dozen times, starting with a best new artist nod in 1979, which actually went to A Taste of Honey. He shared a best pop collaboration with vocals with Burt Bacharach in 1999 for “I Still Have That Girl.’’
