Elvis Costello and Allen Toussaint begin a worldwide tour of their recent 'River In Reverse' album tonight in London but last night was the warm up event at the new Picket in Liverpool. It was a charity event to raise money for the Liverpool venue that last year moved to Jordan Street and the night was amazing. There's 300 people in a small venue watching Elvis Costello singing Watching The Detectives and Alison and then joining in with Allen to sing Get Out My Life Woman, Fortune Teller and Certain Girl. What can I say? Incredible and I'm still in shock! Well done and thanks to Phil Hayes and all at The Picket.
