Elvis Presley may never have made it to the Holy Land, but his more-than-worthy name successor Elvis Costello is going to give his first performance here on June 30 at the Caesarea Amphitheater, only 33 years after the release of his breakout debut album My Aim is True.

The legendary Costello, arguably the most gifted songwriter to emerge in the post-Beatles rock era and undoubtedly the most versatile, has gracefully evolved from the prototypical geeky angry young man of British new wave to an eclectic musical elder statesman of rootsy rock, r&b and country.

Costello will be touring with The Sugarcanes, his all-acoustic band with which he recorded last year’s twangy Secret, Profane & Sugarcane album, the 25th of his career. Produced by all-star collaborator T-Bone Burnett, the album recalls Costello’s 1980s foray into American roots music, King of America.

But rest assured, even without Marshall amps, Costello and the Sugarcanes are capable of instilling fire and style into his oeuvre of early punky classics, middle period pop masterpieces, and even a rollicking cover or two that the band has been known to perform,  like The Rolling Stones’ “Happy.”
