“What’s so funny ‘bout peace, love, and understanding?”
Though the jury is still out on the age-old question posed by Elvis Costello back in 1979, one of the coolest guys in rock is still kicking around existential pop wisdom.
Costello, who was dealt a cancer diagnosis earlier this year, forcing the 64-year-old singer to undergo a surgical procedure and postpone some dates, is as durable as his hits. With the worst behind him, he and his Imposters are ready for a career-spanning performance, including their latest (and Costello’s 25th) Look Now, which is equal parts fresh take and throwback.
Elvis Costello & the Imposters will perform at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 13 at the Fillmore; 2115 Woodward Ave., Detroit; 313-961-5451; thefillmoredetroit.com; Tickets are $35.
