One of the summer's hottest tours rolls into the Greek Theatre with a line-up of good time rock and pop -- and this is your chance to get pre-sale tickets before they sell out. Any one of these acts would be a treat to see on their own, but put the three together and you've got a concert to remember. Multi-platinum-selling pop rockers Goo Goo Dolls are known for such huge '90s hits as "Iris," "Name," "Black Balloon" and "Slide." Chris Daughtry was one of the most successful American Idol finalists to compete on the show. His baldheaded boldness and modern rock style have earned him a legion of fans, and his star continues to rise. Also on the bill, performing an acoustic set, are Plain White T's ("Hey There Delilah," "Rhythm of Love"). Learn More
Reviews & Ratings
Elvis Costello and the Sugarcanes perform at the Greek Theatre with special guest Lucinda Williams.
Elvis Costello has followed his musical curiosity in a career spanning more than 30 years. He is perhaps best known for his performances with The Attractions, The Imposters and for concert appearances with pianist Steve Nieve. However, he has also entered into acclaimed collaborations with Burt Bacharach, The Brodsky Quartet, Paul McCartney, Swedish mezzo-soprano Anne Sofie von Otter, guitarist Bill Frisell, composer Roy Nathanson, The Charles Mingus Orchestra, record producer and songwriter T Bone Burnett and Allen Toussaint. For his Greek Theatre performance, Costello will be accompanied by the Sugarcanes. The Sugarcanes are Costello’s new acoustic band comprised of Jim Lauderdale, Jerry Douglas, Mike Compton, Stuart Duncan, Dennis Crouch and Jeff Taylor.
Costello’s songs have been recorded by a great number of artists. The list of performers reflects his interest in a wide range of musical styles: George Jones, Chet Baker, Johnny Cash, Roy Orbison, Dusty Springfield, Robert Wyatt, Charles Brown, No Doubt, Solomon Burke, June Tabor, Howard Tate, the gospel vocal group The Fairfield Four and the viol consort Fretwork with the countertenor Michael Chance. In 2003, he began a songwriting partnership with his wife, the jazz pianist and singer Diana Krall, resulting in six songs included in her highly successful album The Girl In The Other Room.
Elvis Costello’s new album Secret, Profane & Sugarcane was released by Hear Music on June 2. Secret, Profane & Sugarcane was produced by T Bone Burnett and recorded by Mike Piersante during a three-day session at Nashville’s Sound Emporium Studio. Joining Costello were Jerry Douglas (dobro), Stuart Duncan (fiddle), Mike Compton (mandolin), Jeff Taylor (accordion) and Dennis Crouch (double bass), some of the most highly regarded recording artists and musicians in traditional American country music, Bluegrass and beyond.
