Opening act



  • Elizabeth Napoli: A night with Elvis Costello is a night to remember. Having seen him live many times, I have to say seeing him play solo would be the highlight. With no band to drown out his amazing voice, he and his music are the stars of the show.
    And what a show it was! With one of the most recognisable voices in modern music, it’s such a privilege to be in the same room as him as he showcased a career-worth of classics. For me personally, the highlights were God’s Comic, Radio Sweetheart/ Jackie Wilson Said and Good Year for the Roses. It was interesting to hear him say he hates Everyday I Write the Book, a song he wrote in 10 minutes but went on to be a massive him for him worldwide. It’s a personal fave and the first time I’ve heard it played live so that was a thrill. Another special moment was hearing him do She from the Notting Hill – an achingly beautiful love song, again a track I’ve never heard him do live before. His anecdotes in-between the songs were both entertaining and funny. His 2-hour plus set was greeted with a well-deserved standing ovation. Looking around at the crowd of smiling faces, it was clear we’d all witnessed something very special. Let's hope he continues to visit our shores for many years to come.
