Elvis Costello canta amanhã em Vilamoura

As mágoas das vítimas do furacão Katrina, que arrasou Nova Orleães, vão ser cantadas por Elvis Costello, num espectáculo marcado para amanhã à noite no Jardim do Lake Resort, em Vilamoura. O músico britânico apresenta-se em palco com a Allen Toussaint Band & Horns with Steve Nieve, para apresentar o trabalho colectivo ‘The River in Reverse'.

Costello e Toussaint, que já tinham trabalhado juntos em dois álbuns, reencontraram-se em Nova Iorque, para darem juntos uma série de concertos de beneficência. Foi dessa união que surgiu ‘The River in Reverse’, um projecto muito aclamado pela crítica.

O cantor e compositor, cujo nome está indelevelmente associado ao punk rock e new wave dos anos 80, afirmou-se como uma voz única e original. ‘Imperial Bedroom’, de 1982 é um dos seus trabalhos mais aclamados, a que se seguiu ‘Punch the Clock’, de onde saiu o sucesso internacional ‘Everyday I write the book’ (cujo videoclip apresentava, de forma profética, sósias dos príncipes Carlos e Diana em plena crise doméstica, numa casa suburbana).

Irreverente, às vezes mesmo truculento mas sempre diversificado, Elvis Costello destacou-se mais uma vez com ‘Blood and Chocolate’, onde usou pela primeira vez o seu alter-ego ‘Napoleon Dynamite’, a que se seguiu uma longa parceria com Paul McCartney.

Além da música, Costello, actualmente casado com Diana Krall, fez ainda carreira no cinema, compôs músicas para bailado e colaborou com a cantora de ópera Anne Sophie van Otter. Em 2004, lançou o seu primeiro trabalho orquestral em grande escala, ‘Il Sogno’ e o álbum ‘Delivery Man’.

O espectáculo no Lake Resort, integrado no programa ‘Allgarve Edition’, começa às 22h00. A entrada custa 30 euros."

Elvis Costello sings tomorrow in Vilamoura

The grievances of the victims of Hurricane Katrina, which devastated New Orleans, will be sung by Elvis Costello, in a show scheduled for tomorrow night at the Garden Lake Resort in Vilamoura. The British musician is presented on stage with the Allen Toussaint Band & Horns with Steve Nieve, to present the collective work 'The River in Reverse'.

Costello and Toussaint, who had worked together on two albums, reunited in New York to give together a series of benefit concerts. It was from this union that 'The River in Reverse' emerged, a project that received much critical acclaim.

singer and songwriter, whose name is indelibly associated with the punk rock and new wave '80s, has established himself as a unique and original voice. 'Imperial Bedroom', 1982 is one of his most acclaimed works, followed by 'Punch the Clock', which included the international hit 'Everyday I write the book' (whose video clips presented, in a prophetic way, lookalikes of princes Charles and Diana in full domestic crisis, in a suburban house).

Irreverent, sometimes even truculent but always diverse, Elvis Costello stood out once again with 'Blood and Chocolate', where he first used his alter-ego 'Napoleon Dynamite', which was followed by a long partnership with Paul McCartney.

Besides music, Costello, currently married to Diana Krall, made ​​even film career, he composed music for ballets and collaborated with opera singer Anne Sofie von Otter. In 2004, he released his first full-scale orchestral work, 'Il Sogno' and the album 'The Delivery Man.'

The show at The Lake Resort, part of the 'Allgarve Edition' program starts at 22h00. Entry costs 30 euros."
