Elvis a smash at Tiffany's

But ooh, the equipment


Despite persistent problems with equipment, Elvis Costello took the audience at Tiffany's on Wednesday night to an incredible high. Thankfully, everyone was very well behaved after the trouble at the Adverts gig the night before. This was mainly due to the constant pleas of Mike Gower to take it easy, otherwise it could have been the last ever rock concert at Tiffany's.

Elvis himself, was visibly annoyed with the sound problems and took time to explain the trouble they had getting there earlier on, and then apologised for making excuses. However, he stormed through the remainder of the set and then returned for two encores amidst clouds of dry ice which Elvis claimed was used by heavy bands to make the audience applaud harder. Elvis Costello, and his band, The Attractions, certainly deserve to be bigger than any heavy band, with or without dry ice.
