Elvis Costello, Dr. John added to ACL Hall of Fame show
Elvis Costello and Dr. John have been added to Wednesday’s lineup for the fourth annual Austin City Limits Hall of Fame induction ceremony, the long-running television show announced.
Costello was in town over the weekend to play a benefit concert for the new Musician Treatment Foundation at the Parmount Theatre. He’ll give the induction speech for Rosanne Cash and will be among the musical performers paying tribute to her, along with Neko Case and Ry Cooder.
Dr. John will take part in the tribute to inductees the Neville Brothers, which will include band members Ivan and Art Neville as well as fellow New Orleans musician Trombone Shorty.
This year’s posthumous inductee is Roy Orbison, with show emcee Chris Isaak doing the induction honors as well as performing along with Raul Malo and Brandi Carlile.
Limited tickets, $50-$300, are still available via acl-live.com. Like last year, the show will be taped for PBS broadcast on New Year’s Eve.
