I'm not sure when (or if) it was ever announced, but Dawes was a no-show. There was no opening act, despite the fact ticket buyers were told when the tickets initially went on sale that Dawes would be part of the bill.

Maybe "Dawes Open" should have read "Doors Open"...

I thank you!

It looks like Dawes quietly removed the Chicago show from their itinerary in March. Saturday's show with EC in Canandaigua is still listed on their website.

Some fans speculated Dawes had a conflict of interest since they are playing Taste of Chicago on Sunday or maybe TOC is just a better paying gig.

Last night's show in Chicago was so much fun! The elements threw us a curveball. Started out with a hot and oppressively muggy 88/89 degrees F, ended up a nice 68 degrees F with crazy wind. The band and the audience's energy blasted up 10 fold! It got wild. My hair was everywhere and ended up headbanging to flow with what the wind was doing to me. Briana and I had to hold our mic stands in place as we sang and danced. Water bottles fell over while, set lists, towels and other random things were swirling in the air. Our Assistant Tour Manager, Toast had to come on stage and hold the spotlights steady. The audience rushed to the front of the stage and all heaven broke loose. If you left too soon, you missed out! It was FANTASTIC! Now, after a 7 hour tour bus ride, we rest up for our Pittsburgh show tonight!

Elvis Costello Returns to Chicago After Seven Year Hiatus
Jun 13, 2017
By Peter Serocki

It’s been 7 years since the release of his last studio album “National Ransom” that doesn’t mean Elvis Costello hasn’t been busy. He’s been working with other bands and artists and touring.

Monday is not necessarily the best day for a concert but Chicago weather cooperated beautifully. A warm summer evening with the light breeze and outdoor concert in Huntington Bank Pavilion on Northerly Island, but maybe this is the way to start the workweek.

The excitement was in the air it seemed like most of the people there were ready to sing all the songs together with the artist. Beer, wine, and vodka with lemonade probably helped to relax the public a little since there was no opening act and Elvis Costello & The Imposters went on stage a little after 8 pm.

You could find some empty seats, but for those that love his music and found time to get away from hassle and bustle of the week, this was the perfect evening spent in the city listening to some classics.

Elvis Costello Imperial Bedroom Review – A Full Experience
June 13, 2017
Keith Gerbosi


There is newish trend of artists from the 1970’s and 1980’s going on tour to play classic albums in concert (see U2’s Joshua Tree tour). It’s not a huge surprise that Elvis Costello has joined that club, but what is somewhat surprising is the album he picked: 1982’s Imperial Bedroom. It’s not an obvious choice to base a tour on as it doesn’t have any of Costello’s biggest hits. It didn’t place a single on the Billboard Hot 100, it’s not the 40th anniversary (although 35 is a nice neat year).

So why did he pick it?Costello never comes out and truly explains the choice. And didn’t even open with a song from the album on Monday night at Huntington Bank Pavilion, preferring to open with “On Your Way Down” before getting into the source material. Costello is too unique to go up there and play the songs from Imperial Bedroom in order, preferring to sprinkle in other songs from the era.

One unsaid reason for picking the album might be that the theme of the album, which Costello described as “romantic melancholy,” remind Costello of the times we are living in. Without getting overly political, Costello did crack “Every song we thought of singing tonight sounded like a satirical routine: ‘Waiting for the End of the World,’ ‘American Gangster Time,’ ‘Brilliant Mistake’ — and this one,” then playing “Accidents Will Happen.” A not so subtle statement about the election last year.

Elvis was accompanied by keyboardist Steve Nieve, drummer Pete Thomas and bassist Davey Faragher and a pair of female background singers: Kitten Kuroi and Brianna Lee. The backup singers added a new level of depth and emotion the songs. The player that really stood out was Steve Nieve, and not just because he was playing a bright red grand piano. His piano playing carried many of the songs, but none better than on “Shabby Doll.”

Elvis Costello is the type of artist that you can listen to all night and the 35-year-old album sounded as fresh as when it was first released. It was a joy that Costello played over two and half hours. The first encore, in which Costello traded his red fedora for a blue one, was stripped down: just voice and guitar or voice and piano only. For “Alison” Costello played the guitar with the backup singers gathered around him to form a mini choir. It was a beautiful take on one of Costello’s biggest hits.

The second encore was the total opposite of stripped down. It was a raucous, high-energy three song climax to the night. Costello and the band ripped through “Everyday I Write the Book”, “Pump It Up” and “What’s So Funny ’bout Peace, Love and Understanding”.


After the show, it became obvious why Costello picked Imperial Bedroom. Fans have been coming to see him for close to 40 years, some have seen him over 20 times and name their kids after him. They want to see and experience every part of Costello’s genius, not just the hits. And the fact is that Imperial Bedroom is one of Costello’s best and most beloved records.
