Venue – Liverpool Philharmonic Hall
Gig Buddies – Stephen and Ellie
Gig Booty – none, though I was tempted by guitar picks.
The ticket said no support, but there was indeed a support band in the form of Larkin Poe. I didn’t see their support slot as I was waiting with Ellie’s ticket to get in. However, they did come back on stage later to join Elvis for a few songs.
I love seeing Costello. I’ve never been disappointed by a gig. A quick count up reckons that I’ve seen him around eight times now, possibly nine.
Armed with a series of guitars, a piano, a fantastically dressed stage set, and an occasionally used loop pedal we were treated to a career-spanning set list. I’m sure I’ve expounded on the subject before so here’s some photos and the set lists (both the one from the tech desk showing the song choices available and one from setlist.fm showing which ones were performed.)
