Shoreline Amphitheatre | Mountain View, California
Fans of 70s jazz rockers Steely Dan have had a lot to celebrate recently! Not content with headlining this year's Coachella Festival, the band are hitting the road for their Rockabye Gollie Angel Tour! And who better to join them than British pub rock troubadour Elvis Costello? This will surely be an unmissable night of intelligent, singalong hits. See it all at Shoreline Amphitheatre on Saturday 11th July!
Described by Rolling Stone Magazine as "the perfect musical antiheroes for the Seventies", Steely Dan's intricate blend of jazz rock with whimsical, ironically charged lyrics, has built them a cult following over their compelling four decade career. From their critically acclaimed 1972 debut album Can't By a Thrill, to their triumph at the 2000 Grammys when Two Against Nature (their first studio album in 20 years) won four awards, the band have clearly earned their induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Over the years, Steely Dan have sold over 40 million albums worldwide, and are still as phenomenal live as they ever were.
Combining unparalleled mastery of lyricism with the ruthlessness of punk, British new wave troubadour Elvis Costello has had a varied and nonconformist career. From his numerous chart hits to his diverse collaborations with some of the biggest names around, not forgetting his cameo with Burt Bacharach in the comedy Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me, the highly awarded Costello has made his mark in the annals of popular music. In 2004, Rolling Stone Magazine ranked him No. 80 on their list of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time.
