Elvis Costello at SummerStage 2017

Elvis Costello & The Imposters

June 15 @ 6:30 pm10:00 pm

Elvis Costello is nothing short of legendary. With one of the most prolific careers in music today, he has his sublimely talented fingers in more musical pots and genres than one can count. His breakout on to the British pub scene of the ‘70s quickly saw him become a pioneer of the punk and new-wave movements. With his critically acclaimed 1977 debut album My Aim Is True in the bag, Costello assembled The Attractions as his backers. Over the years, Costello has collaborated with Burt Bacharach, Paul McCartney, and jazz-pianist Diana Krall (his wife), and penned songs for Roy Orbison, Johnny Cash, No Doubt and James Brown – all showcasing his stunning diversity in varying styles. With a Grammy win, Oscar nom, induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and inclusion on tons of Rolling Stone ‘best’ lists, Costello is a premier name in the business. He now tours with The Imposters, as he continues to reimagine and reinvent musical forms.

Go-Go’s Farewell Performance at Central Park’s SummerStage

The Go-Go’s last appearance in NYC took place August 13th at Central Park’s SummerStage – the site of their historic 2001 comeback performance.

“After a 38 year run, we are gearing up for one last blast of a summer tour,” says the band about the farewell trek. “We feel so lucky and so grateful to have had the incredible support of our fans for so long. We can’t wait to get out on the road and give the people what they want: some loud fast music and a great party!”  And the Go-Go’s did just that with a performance that rocked a sell-out crowd.  Fans enjoyed a strong set of favorites highlighted by a rendition of the classic “Cool Jerk” that featured a colorful array of lucky fans that bounced around onstage.  The band looked and sounded great, heating up an already sweltering Central Park night!

The legendary rock group made history as the first, and to date only, all-female band that both wrote their own songs and played their own instruments to ever top the Billboard charts. The Go-Go’s rose to fame during the early 1980s after the release of their debut album, Beauty and the Beat, which was #1 on the Billboard charts for six consecutive weeks, selling three million copies, and making it one of the most successful debut albums of all time. In 1982, The Go-Go’s were nominated for a Grammy Award for “Best New Artist” and the group also released their sophomore album, Vacation, that same year, which was certified Gold in the US and spawned another top 10 US hit with the title track. In 2011, the trailblazing band was honored with a Star on the world-famous Hollywood Walk of Fame.
