Wow, could this man be more versatile? Wednesday greets us with a spate of Costello news.
First off, Elvis has a cameo (or possibly larger) role in Tom DeCillo’s new film Delirious which is an acid satire of modern celebrity culture. The film also stars (Costello cohort) Steve Buscemi, Gina Gershon, Michael Pitt and Alison Lohman. Delirious opens today, August 15th, in New York and LA.

Second, Elvis is also scheduled to perform a couple of shows with Bob Dylan (as opener) in the early fall. Those of you in or near Duluth, GA and Columbia, MD, you’ve got a great double bill on your hands. Tickets for the Dylan/Costello shows go on pre-sale on August 15 (today), with the regular tickets going on sale 08/17 and 08/18 respectively.
