Elvis Costello’s Revolver Tour hit Cape Cod last Wednesday night at the Cape Cod Melody Tent and he went down a storm with locals and vacationers alike as he rocked the place for over 2 hours.
The set list covered the complete sweep of Costello’s career from 1977 to the present day. The crowd were on their feet to join in the Attractions’ hits of “Watching The Detectives”, “Radio, Radio”, “I Don’t Want to Go to Chelsea” and “Pump It Up” through to “Bedlam”, “Peace, Love & Understanding” and “Brilliant Mistake”. Interspersed among these hits were a couple of interesting cover songs including a barn-storming version of The Byrds’ “So You want to Be a Rock and Roll Star”. A great performance and another great night at a wonderful Cape Cod attraction. After the concert we headed back to our Cape Cod Bed and Breakfast, The Platinum Pebble, with Elvis blaring on the radio as we continued our concert into the late night.
