Elvis Costello & The Imposters

31 March & 1–2 April 2024

In the Concert Hall | Contemporary Music

Multi-award winning singer-songwriter and rock ’n’ roll hall of famer Elvis Costello returns to the Sydney Opera House Concert Hall – with his legendary band The Imposters – for the first time in 17 years.

Electric atmosphere in barnstorming show.

Pump it up with the return of a rock 'n' roll legend

His career is legendary, spanning more than four decades and thirty-plus albums, and his songs – “Alison”, “Pump It Up”, “This Year’s Model”, “(What’s So Funny ‘Bout) Peace Love and Understanding” – are classics, explosive punk energy channeled through the timelessness of classic rock ’n’ roll songwriting. Now, after 17 long years, multi-award winning singer-songwriter Elvis Costello is returning to the Sydney Opera House Concert Hall for two dynamite, career-spanning performances, and he’s bringing his indefatigable band The Imposters along for the ride.

Fresh off their most recent album, this year’s The Boy Named If, Elvis Costello and The Imposters – essentially the Attractions plus bassist Davey Faragher – have been touring an electrifying two-hour set with the combustible energy of men a third their age, drawing heavily on a beloved back catalogue that runs from early, stone-cold classics like records My Aim is TrueThis Year’s Model and Armed Forces to their latest work.

Whether you’re a diehard fan or a Costello newcomer, this is one show you won’t want to miss.
