Elvis again

Record Mirror

Elvis Costello is to follow his "low key" British tour with another tour immediately afterwards — this time at major venues.

Although dates and venues won't be announced for another three weeks Record Mirror understands that a skeleton itinerary has already been set up, including seated venues in all the major towns and cities.

The current tour, set up when Costello was still in dispute with WEA Records, broke new ground by concentrating entirely on halls not normally visited by major acts.

All were standing venues and ticket prices were pegged for all gigs, a new idea which has been taken up by Madness for their next tour (see separate story).
