Elvis Costello - De La Warr Pavilion

Music's Not Dead are delighted to announce a very special evening to celebrate the release of Elvis Costello's new album 'The Boy Named If'.

On 14 January 2022, Elvis Costello and The Imposters release, ‘The Boy Named If,’ a new album of urgent, immediate songs with bright melodies, guitar solos that sting and a quick step to the rhythm.

To celebrate the release of his new album ‘the Boy Named If’, Elvis Costello will come to DLWP for an Intimate Q & A and Talk through the album – fingers crossed we may get a couple of songs also.

(It would be great if you would consider buying an album bundle rather than a single ticket (approx £4.00 more to get a CD), This really helps us and the Band/Artist and we’ll be able to put on more great events like this]

This event is an ‘outstore’ promoted by Musics’ Not Dead to promote an album.  As indicated by the ticket price, this is therefore not a full concert.

Event times:

7pm – Building opens

8pm – Start

Costello tell us, “The full title of this record is ‘The Boy Named If (And Other Children’s Stories).’ ‘IF,’ is a nickname for your imaginary friend; your secret self, the one who knows everything you deny, the one you blame for the shattered crockery and the hearts you break, even your own.”

Produced by Sebastian Krys & Elvis Costello – the album is a collection of thirteen snapshots, “That take us from the last days of a bewildered boyhood to that mortifying moment when you are told to stop acting like a child – which for most men (and perhaps a few gals too) can be any time in the next fifty years,” as Costello put it.
