Elvis Costello & The Roots are hitting the road together this March in a continuation of their collaboration for the recent Wise Up Ghost.
In 2013 Costello and The Roots teamed up to collaborate, this spawned the album “Wise Up Ghost”. After listening briefly it was apparent to me that this sounds a lot like Beck meets Smash Mouth with a trippy hip hop beat. They pull it off perfectly, complimenting each other along the way while using their differences to create something that truly stands out from the humdrum of the status quo.
If you didn’t know or were not aware, you should be enlightened, allow me. The band performed their song “Walk Us Uptown” on the Jimmy Fallon show in the latter part of 2013. When it comes to Mr. Costello one can never predict what he might do, he has in the recent past; worked with fall Out Boy, written a chamber opera, and performed a duet with Mr. Sarcasm himself, Stephen Colbert as a Musical guest on the “Colbert Report”.
It must have gone well and it must have been fun because they are now announcing a series of dates for 2014. You will find these dates below.
