McCartney & MacManus

Expect the Liverpool Echo to breathlessly claim this as an exclusive sometime next month: Tony Parrish reveals on his excellent blog that Elvis Costello will join Macca at the Liverpool Sound Anfield gig in the summer (http://liverpoolsubculture.blogspot.com/2008/04/maccas-anfield-gig-is-mess.html ).
However, the amount of coverage the BBC gives to the event remains unresolved because the Beeb hasn't been told by those comedians at the Culture Company who else is on the bill.
The cost of the Anfield concert has also begun to spiral, another triumph for the clowns in Phil Redmond's circus, according to Tony.

Curiously, Costello's appearance, as well as an evening with the RLPO at the Philharmonic Hall in June, contradicts his remarks late last year about not playing in the UK again.
