News on Elvis Costello, CMA Awards, Bob Marley
While Rhino mines and reissues his back catalog, Elvis Costello is not resting on his laurels. The artist has scheduled a performance Nov. 7 at New York's Beacon Theatre with the Charles Mingus Orchestra. Together they will perform Mingus compositions, some with brand new lyrics, as well as arrangements of songs from Costello's extensive songbook.
The acts performed two shows together late last month on the University of California - Los Angeles (UCLA) campus, where Costello is the first Artist in Residence for the school's performing arts program, UCLA Live. In his role, Costello is curating a season of events and programs, with three more events in development that are due to take place in the coming months.
Tickets for the New York performance -- ranging from $35 to $100 -- go on sale Saturday (Oct. 13) at 10 a.m. via Ticketmaster. There is an eight ticket limit per person.
