Elvis Costello TicketsWith his first three albums listed on Rolling Stone Magazine's list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time, Elvis Costello was a legend almost from the start. Born Declan Patrick MacManus in London, England, on Aug. 25, 1954, he started on his path to musical superstardom by playing in the early '70s in London's pub scene. Later, he became a part of the British new wave and punk rock movement's first wave. In 1977, he released his first album, My Aim is True, to critical acclaim, shortly thereafter forming his first backup band, The Attractions, with whom he recorded and toured for almost a decade. With The Attractions, Elvis Costello was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Elvis Costello's new backup band that performs with him today, The Imposters, formed in the late '90s.
