Elvis Costello saw a need to revisit his music.
And with his latest tour, he’s revisiting his 1982 album “Imperial Bedroom.”
The idea for the tour came from his working on the stage musical “A Face in the Crowd.”
“I previewed many of the songs from the score,” he says. “As we played them, it got to the point of this interlocking room. It invites us into the future, while putting a new spin on the older songs.”
Costello is ready to head out on the road for the next leg of his tour.
And he’s bringing along his children.
“I’ll be pulling double duty,” he says with a laugh. “I get to be teacher and a rock musician. And I get to travel with them. This is where they will learn the most.”
Costello will perform at Popejoy Hall on Wednesday, June 7.
Attention, music lovers and cinephiles. The Albuquerque Film and Music Experience opens on Tuesday, June 6, in Albuquerque. The festival, in its sixth year, will feature dozens of films and events. I got a chance to catch up with Oscar winner Jeff Bridges, who will be honoring his friend – and legendary music producer – T Bone Burnett on June 10. Bridges spoke about his love for New Mexico and his a decadeslong friendship with Burnett.
The festival will screen the Sundance Film Festival darling “Rumble: The Indians Who Rocked the World” on Tuesday, June 6. The documentary tells the story of how Native Americans helped shape music and popular culture.
And fashionistas take note. Santa Fe Fashion Week is upon us. I talked with founder Stephen Cuomo about what’s new at the event.
Today is also the release date for the highly anticipated film “Wonder Woman.”
