I didn't realize it until we got to the venue but Elvis Costello opened the show. I love me some Elvis (Costello and Presley). Elvis did a great set, especially Sting coming out to duet with him on Allison.
As it often happens, one thing is a microcosm for another. Watching the show I couldn't help but note the impact of fitness on the artists.
Elvis Costello is 53. He looks like this - kind of, well, lumpy.
|Sting is 56 and a long-time proponent of fitness, yoga and healthy diet. He looks like this.|
Both Sting and Elvis are looking a bit scruffy with the beard, but check that bicep on Sting. I would not describe him as lumpy unless by lumpy I meant delicious.
