Elvis is entering the building

Elvis Costello is going to give his first performance here on June 30 at the Caesarea Amphitheater.

Elvis Presley may never have made it to the Holy Land, but hismore-than-worthy namesake Elvis Costello is going to give his firstperformance here on June 30 at the Caesarea Amphitheater, only 33 yearsafter the release of his breakout debut album My Aim is True.
The legendary Costello, arguably the most gifted songwriter to emergein the post-Beatles rock era and undoubtedly the most versatile, hasgracefully evolved from the prototypical geeky angry young man ofBritish 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 bandwith which he recorded last year's twangy Secret, Profane &Sugarcane album, the 25th of his career. Produced by all-starcollaborator T-Bone Burnett, the album recalls Costello's 1980s forayinto American roots music, King of America.
But rest assured, even without Marshall amps, Costello and theSugarcanes are capable of instilling fire and style into his oeuvre ofearly punky classics, middle period pop masterpieces, and even arollicking cover or two that the band has been known to perform, likeThe Rolling Stones' "Happy."
Tickets for the show, produced by Alive Productions, will cost betweenNIS 300 and 650 and will be available via the Hadran ticket agency.
Of all the illustrious talents arriving here this year, Costello might very well be the one to put your money on.
