Elvis Costello and The Imposters will be heading to Thetford Forest this summer.
This is the sixth and final headline act confirmed to appear in Thetford Forest as part of Forest Live, the Forestry Commission’s annual concert series.
Elvis Costello, whose career has spanned more than 35 years, 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’, ‘Pump It Up’, ‘Oliver’s Army’ and ‘Veronica’ as well as his timeless cover of ‘Good Year For The Roses’.
He will be performing at High Lodge on Saturday, July 13.
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.
Other acts playing at Thetford Forest include Blondie, Paloma Faith, James and The Script.
Tickets £39 go on sale at 9am on Friday, March 22, from the Forestry Commission box office on 03000 680400 or www.forestry.gov.uk/music.
