We were in the second to last row.
Living with (and attended with) an
audiophile bf I’ve come to be quite
sound sensitive and immediately
knew something was up with the
acoustics. Although, not sure who to
blame - Venue or sound crew. Found
ourselves enduring the show and
leaving before encore. So not like us
being huge live music and Elvis

TOO BAD ABOUT THE POOR SOUND
It’s going to be pretty tough to please everyone
when your career spans 40 years, but we were
hoping to hear some of the 70’s and 80’s stuff
played in the original arrangements. Didn’t
really care for the somewhat ‘wanky’
departures during classics like Watching the
Detectives, and those backup singers were
completely unnecessary. Elvis is still a way
awesome cat though, so cool to see him still

ADMIRABLY LONG CONCERT, MOSTLY POOR VOCALS FROM EC
Nice that Elvis sang a long (2 hr 45 min) show despite battling a bad cold. Much of his singing was pitchy and froggy. (I understand the frogginess, but does a cold make you go off pitch?) His vocals improved as the night went on. Weird rendition of Watching the Detectives, good versions of Pump It Up and What so Funny About Peace, Love and Understanding.
Great band (love Pete Thomas's drumming). Thanks god for the back up singers. Elvis did offer some great tortured-sounding guitar leads. I think if he wasn't sick this would be a 4 star (or even five) star show.

His voice was not up to par. The sound could have been better. All the
energy came from the 2 back up singers who were great. Did not stay
for the encore, which is a first.

EC AT NORTHRUP, MPLS
The Imposters are grand musicians, as is EC, and the back-up singers were great.
The few rockers that they played, that did not depend on EC's vocals, were good,
'High Fidelity', etc..., and especially the closing 'Peace, Love & Understanding' were
Unfortunately EC doesn't have the voice any more. His ballads are difficult to sing in
general, in terms of pitch and phrasing, and it's too bad that EC can't really sing his
own ballads any more. And the thing with his songs, is no one could really do his
ballads justice. I love a ton of EC's ballads, but if he can't do them any more and no
one else can, then I will just have to live in the past.

SOUND WAS HORRIBLE
Was quite excited to see Elvis Costello live for the 1st time. Sound quality was so bad we left half way through. It was like trying to understand Dylan, muffled, garbled, and difficult to understand. But his guitar shined through most of it.
Cheryl from Frankfort Kentucky
I LOVE Elvis but the sound was so horrible i walked out hoping he would fire the sound man. Doesnt someone walk around to see if the sound is clear. We litterally had zero clear songs
