Elvis Costello: Detour Live at Liverpool Philharmonic Hall
(Elvis Costello: Detour Live at Liverpool Philharmonic Hall ) Director: Joss Crowley, GB, 2015, English version, 112 min
This compelling film was captured when Elvis Costello brought his solo show "Detour" to the Liverpool Philharmonic Hall. His 2015 tour earned Costello the acclaim of "The most prodigious writer of fine songs in British history" from UK newspaper The Independent. Combining classic songs performed with guitar or at the piano with reminiscences of his family, life and career, the show is by turns touching, humorous, thoughtful and uplifting. The set also features recent songs such as "Church Underground," and "Jimmie Standing In The Rain" alongside much loved tracks from across his career and cover versions all given a new twist in their solo renditions. Joining Costello on several tracks are Rebecca and Megan Lovell of Larkin Poe on several of the tracks.
