Elvis Costello has fixed his London concerts — he'll be playing the Royal Albert Hall on December 24 and 27.
The concerts follow up his sell-out shows at the venue in January, when he was supported by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.
But this year's bash will feature Elvis and the Attractions playing a "normal" set.
With the extravagant venue, the singer — who has just released his Imperial Bedroom album — will no doubt do something special in the shows. It is not known whether he will do a two-part set like last year, or if he'll be drafting in a support band.

Because there are only a small number of seats at each price there is no guarantee of getting the appropriate tickets. Applications will be dealt with by rotation and tickets at lower prices will be sent with a refund. Six weeks should be allowed for delivery.
