Snow looks problematic for tomorrow. i wonder if venue and the band has alternate date free on the 10th or 12th. actually am not attending myself this night. but, i am worried about potential disappointment for friends and strangers alike that might not find it so easy to get there. good luck to all.

That’s my concern as well, coming in from Jersey. Manhattan’s one thing, getting to Brooklyn via mass transit may be a fruitless endeavor.

Brooklyn Steel is booked on 3/10 and 3/12, so I imagine they'd be hard pressed to postpone or cancel the gig. Personally, I'd love a slightly depressed turnout.....

I plan to be there. Hoping there is no cancellation, although it might be dicey getting home after the show.

I'm so glad I live in the neighborhood. Literally, a 16 minute walk away. Just hoping it doesn't get cancelled.

I'LL BET MY PAYCHECK THIS SHOW WILL NOT BE CANCELLED. go all and enjoy the night at a much less crowded venue than it would have been minus the snow.

Wish I was there, instead I'm here. Will be hitting the trails listening to some live EC at GAMH.

Plenty of tix on Stubhub for $30 or less, so the dream of a sparsely attended show is alive!

Sold out, according to EC’s website: https://www.elviscostello.com/#/events?page=1
Since you put me down, it seems i've been very gloomy. You may laugh but pretty girls look right through me.

Elvis tweets:

We’re here. Hope you can make it in the snow and we don’t have to send out the St. Bernard with a barrel of brandy round it’s neck, snowshoes and a toboggan. #BrooklynSteel

Overall a very strong show, best since Carnegie Hall. Nice mix of rarities and the brand new stuff sounds great. Also great to hear first show of tour when voice is strongest.

Said they are making new album but aren't ready to play too many new tunes. Will bring them back to NYC next time (because he loves us best)

A great, but not awesome show. Some terrific surprises (Blue Chair, Miracle Man, Next Time Around, Come the Meantimes, Still Have That Other Girl) but, I dunno, the show didn't seem to have a focus. That's what happens when you're not touring an album or framing it with a gimmick (Spinning Songbook, Imperial Bedroom).

I was really expecting, and looking forward to, a lot more new material (no "Go Tell"? WTF?). I wonder if this was the show they'd been planning to do in Vegas. Actually, EC did say that the new material "wasn't ready," so that's probably the explanation.

Finally: the backup singers seem really, really, really, really unnecessary. Was hoping it was just gonna be EC and the boys.

I'll be interested to see how different tomorrow and Friday are. If not much, I think I may sell my Sunday tic.

All that said: Was a thrill to see him and the Is, as always.

Elvis Costello + Brooklyn = brilliant

Really great show, with EC in fine voice and spirits. Good crowd too, which he seemed to appreciate.

4 new ones for me: (1) This is Hell, (2) Motel Matches (finally after 30+ shows!!), (3) Talking in the Dark, and (4) You Shouldn't Look at Me That Way.

Only negative was how far the venue is from the subway. The walk in blowing snow was a bitch and I was pretty soaked.

Good to meet some fellow fans before the show at a local Vietnamese restaurant!
