Nick Lowe, Elvis Costello To Cover Each Other
Elvis Costello and Nick Lowe are set to share a stage to benefit the Richard de Lone Special Housing Fund. On October 1, the longtime collaborators will perform two sets at San Francisco’s Great American Music Hall. The show will feature Costello and Lowe playing songs from each others’ catalogues, backed by a band featuring Bill Kirchen, Austin de Lone, and Bob Andrews.
The Richard de Lone Special Housing Project is a group home for patients with Prader-Willi Syndrome.
In addition to producing Costello’s first five albums, Lowe wrote the legendary track “(What’s So Funny ‘Bout) Peace, Love, and Understanding.”
Lowe will be touring the US throughout October, supported by New Wave veteran Graham Parker. Lowe’s first three albums, The Impossible Bird, Dig My Mood, and The Convincer, will be re-released on vinyl via Yep Roc on September 21.
Costello’s latest album, the Nashville-flavored National Ransom, drops November 12 on Hear Music. Check out an interview of Costello discussing the album here.
