"There is no begrudging Costello his floor in the tower of song: the man’s knowledge is breathtaking"

The Guardian

Elvis Costello has followed his musical curiosity in a career spanning more than 35 years. He is perhaps best known for his performances with The Attractions, The Imposters and for concert appearances with pianist Steve Nieve. However, he has also entered into acclaimed collaborations with many of the world's best musical talents including Burt Bacharach, The Brodsky Quartet, Paul McCartney, record producer and songwriter T Bone Burnett, and the Roots.

During his career Costello has received several prestigious honors, including two Ivor Novello Awards for songwriting, a BAFTA and a Grammy for “I Still Have That Other Girl” from his 1998 collaboration with Burt Bacharach, ‘Painted From Memory’.

Elvis Costello and The Attractions were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2003. There have also been a number of Grammy nominations for his recent albums ‘When I Was Cruel’ and ‘The Delivery Man’.

The Undertones hail from Derry, Northern Ireland and are best known for their chart topping hit Teenage Kicks. The Undertones are John O'Neill, Michael Bradley, Billy Doherty, Damian O'Neill and Paul McLoone.
