Walking in the footsteps of Harry Houdini and beyond the long shadow of Charlie Chaplin, Frank Carson and the great Leonard Sachs, Elvis Costello brings his new presentation “15 SONGS FROM 50 YEARS” to the City Varieties Music Hall in Leeds on Monday, 2nd September and Tuesday, 3rd September, staging four unique performances over two days, each of approximately a 75-minute duration. 


The 7.00PM soiree will feature an entirely different repertoire to that of the 9.30PM performance, with songs selected from each of the five decades of Costello’s astonishing songwriting endeavors. 


Tickets go on-sale Friday 22nd March at 10am from ElvisCostello.com.   


City Varieties Music Hall

Monday, 2nd September – 2 SHOWS | 7.00PM and 9.30PM

Tuesday, 3rd September – 2 SHOWS | 7.00PM and 9.30PM


A fifteen-song programme will be printed in advance with few, if any repeats anticipated (but with the possibility of impromptu choices along the way). Costello and Nieve very occasionally take requests but should never be mistaken for a jukebox.


The third and fourth performances on the following day will propose a deuce of delights; two entirely different 15-song set-lists selected from half a century of popular songwriting craft.


The four shows are guaranteed to feature 60 different songs but we suspect this is just the start.


Those who want to attend all four contrasting shows in this exclusive engagement can obtain a special season ticket to include premium seats for each show in the front rows or boxes with exclusive use of the bar in between shows.


Do not dilly-dally or delay to avoid disappointment.
