Elvis Costello & The Imposters
We're thrilled to welcome Elvis Costello & The Imposters to Wales Millennium Centre for a fabulous finale to close Festival of Voice 2018.
Elvis Costello began writing songs at the age of thirteen. 2017 marked the 40th anniversary of the release of his first record album, My Aim Is True.
Best known for the songs, Alison, Pump It Up, Everyday I Write The Book, and his rendition of the Nick Lowe song, (What’s So Funny ‘Bout) Peace Love and Understanding, his record catalogue of more than thirty albums includes contrasting pop and rock & roll albums.
He has performed worldwide with his bands, The Attractions, His Confederates - which featured two members of Elvis Presley’s “T.C.B” band - and his current group, The Imposters – Steve Nieve, Pete Thomas and Davey Faragher.
During his career, Costello has received numerous prestigious honours, including two Ivor Novello Awards for songwriting, and a BAFTA for the music written with Richard Harvey for Alan Bleasdale’s television drama series G.B.H. and a Grammy for I Still Have That Other Girl from his 1998 collaboration with Burt Bacharach, Painted From Memory.
