Elvis Costello and The Attractions are headlining a free concert at London Chalk Farm Roundhouse tomorrow (Friday) evening. They have slotted in the gig at short notice, as a warm-up for their extensive two-month American tour starting next week, and they are supported on the bill by Whirlwind and the Soft Boys.
Tickets are being allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. The first 800 will be given away at the Roundhouse box-office at 1 pm tomorrow, and the remaining thousand are being handed out at 7.30 pm, just before the show starts. In both cases, queues are likely to form well before the specified times — so if you want a free ticket, get there early!
As previously reported, Elvis is being lined up for a nationwide British tour in the early spring, opening soon after he returns from the States.
