Elvis Costello "Purple Rain" (Prince cover) (live video)
Published Jun 24, 2011Elvis Costello fans have been more than happy to see the return of his "Spectacular Singing Songbook." For his current tour with the Imposters, the icon is joined on stage by a giant game-show wheel, every spin of which tells him which song to play next so that every date gets its own unique setlist of Costello hits, rarities and even covers.
One cover that he's been treating audiences to is one of Prince's classic "Purple Rain." Below, you can watch a video of Costello performing that track in New York City's Beacon Theatre on May 24.
The tour is stopping in Ottawa today (June 24) and in Buffalo, NY tomorrow (June 25).
