“Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Elvis Costello is coming to ACL Live at the Moody Theater in December to fundraise for the Musician Treatment Foundation, the Austin and NYC based nonprofit that provides surgery and medical care for musicians experiencing issues with their hands, shoulders, and elbows.
The King of America & Other Realms show is produced by midas-touch musician T Bone Burnett and counts Austin’s Charlie Sexton, who has been playing guitar in Costello’s band for the last year, as its musical director. The benefit concert, happening December 2, also features performances from Rosanne Cash and John Leventhal plus longtime Austin-resident Allan Mayes, who co-helmed the folk rock band Rusty with a teenage Costello (then known as D.P. MacManus) in the early Seventies. Rusty reunited this summer for an astonishingly overdue debut album The Resurrection of Rust. There are more performers to be announced, including one that has headlined the downtown venue by themselves.”
