Elvis Costello will be swinging by Athens during his "Solo" world tour, playing live for a one night at the Athens Concert Hall on October 26.

Costello fans be given a second opportunity to see him live after his scheduled appearance at the open-air Terravibe venue in Malakasa earlier this year was cancelled due to poor sales.

His last visit to Athens was in 2007 at the Herod Atticus Odeon, during the much-acclaimed "The River in Reverse" tour with singer-pianist Allen Toussaint. This time, it will be just Costello on his own, on the stage, with his suit and his hat and an acoustic guitar.
