Anybody who has witnessed these or indeed any of Elvis Costello's live shows will appreciate the special magic that occurs when Steve Nieve is let loose to solo on the piano.

Get to experience a full evening of this magic as Steve and his incredibly talented friend, vocalist and drummer Kessada, bring you 'Stories Of Love' and transport the Immobile Tour to your hometown. After one hundred plus online shows since the pandemic began, on Facebook and Instagram, you already know to expect the unexpected from this musical pair of lunatics.
