We are thrilled to welcome back Michael and Lou for what will be one of the first My Darling Clementine concert since lock-down and one of their first shows since the release of their brand new album, Country Darkness – the songs of Elvis Costello.

The album finds them mining the Costello back catalogue, in particular his more ‘country’ and ‘country soul’ flavoured songs, in collaboration with his long-time, right-hand man, the brilliant Steve Nieve.

“Costello’s songs, King and Dalgleish’s voices, Nieve’s keys… it’s a perfect fit” AMERICAN SONGWRITER

This full-band show will feature a number of the Elvis Costello songs as well as many favourites from the duo’s nine year back catalogue.

You can enjoy the concert in person at The Met, or at home by purchasing a streaming ticket (just click on the “Streaming” area, or choose “Streaming” from the popup). All bookers, including those who join us on the night, will be able to watch the concert back online for one week after the show.

This event has been rescheduled from 7 November, 11 December and 6 February.
