SEVENTIES new wave star turned 90s crooner Elvis Costello has announced an additional date in the south as part of his autumn UK tour.

The acclaimed singer-songwriter, whose new album North is released this month, plays Bournemouth International Centre on Saturday, November 8.

Costello, real name Declan MacManus, began his recording career in 1977 with his first album, My Aim is True, and the classic single Watching the Detectives, which reached number 15.

Since then he has made more than a dozen albums, both as a solo artist and with his group The Attractions.

Among his most enduring hits are Pump It Up, I Can't Stand Up for Falling Down and A Good Year for the Roses. His biggest chart success was Oliver's Army, which got to number two in 1979.

In recent years, the Liverpudlian artist has explored a variety of musical styles, from classical to classic easy listening.

In 1992 he made an album with the Brodsky Quartet. It was the start of a fruitful partnership between the two.

In 1994 he was guest singer on Tony Bennett's Grammy Award-winning record MTV Unplugged.

He has also contributed to various film soundtracks. He covered the Charles Aznavour song She for Notting Hill and the classic Burt Bacharach track I'll Never Fall in Love Again for Austin Powers 2.

He also made a cameo appearance in the latter film.

The concert starts at 8pm. Tickets cost from £27.50. Box office: 01202 456456.
