Elvis Costello to headline Thetford Forest festival gig this summer
The Imposters forest gig announced
Elvis Costello and The Imposters have announced an East Anglian concert for the summer. This is the sixth and final headline act confirmed to appear in Thetford Forest as part of Forest Live, organised by the Forestry Commission, where an eclectic mix of acts perform in spectacular woodland locations around the country.
Elvis Costello is considered to be one of the most important singer-songwriters to surface from the punk/New Wave era. With absorbing lyrics and memorable tunes set to his distinctive vocal, he has generated a songbook of classic material including: ‘Alison’, ‘Watching The Detectives’, ‘Pump It Up’, ‘Oliver’s Army’, ‘I Can’t Stand Up (For Falling Down)’, ‘Accidents Will Happen’, ‘Pills And Soap’ and ‘Veronica’ as well as his timeless cover of ‘Good Year For The Roses’. Ever evolving in his musical output, a stream of top five albums like: ‘Armed Forces’, ‘Get Happy!!’, ‘Almost Blue’, ‘Imperial Bedroom’, ‘Punch The Clock’, ‘Spike’ and ‘Brutal Youth’ have ensured a formidable chart presence both sides of the Atlantic in a career spanning over 35 years.
Forest Live is an independent programme organised by the Forestry Commission, bringing music to new audiences without commercial branding or sponsorship. Income generated from ticket sales is spent on improving the local forests for both people and wildlife.
Elvis Costello and The Imposters plus guests will be performing:
Saturday 13 July, Thetford Forest, Nr Brandon, Suffolk
