Elvis Costello: Solo! "Hits & Headlines / Waifs & Strays: For The Benefit Of The Musician Treatment Foundation"

New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Elvis Costello has announced a solo concert to raise start-up funding for The Musician Treatment Foundation, a new Austin-based nonprofit aiming to create a future in which musicians from Austin and beyond can receive restorative treatment regardless of their ability to pay. The two-hour concert, "Hits & Headlines / Waifs & Strays: For the Benefit of The Musician Treatment Foundation" will take place in Austin, TX at the Paramount Theatre on Sunday, October 22. General admission and VIP tickets will go on-sale August 25th and are available at

Costello says: "It is always a pleasure to play for my friends in Austin and to do so in support of this fine new initiative will only make the occasion more unique. I never like to take my best known songs for granted and prefer to earn the right to sing them again in the company of songs that may be new to your ears but have become extremely vivid to me in my recent performances. As the title of the show suggests, this is an evening of heart and humour. There will be something for everyone."

The Musician Treatment Foundation founder Alton Barron, MD says: "It is a great honor to have Elvis playing such an integral part in this new effort to help musicians and keep the music playing. His grace, humility, and strong belief in our mission is an inspiration to us all. Elvis Costello and Diana Krall are making our hopes for needful musicians an exciting reality!"

The nonprofit Musician Treatment Foundation is devoted to the healthcare needs of professional musicians. This nonprofit is the first of its kind, in design, scope, and breadth, dedicated to the upper limb problems of musicians. The foundation aims to facilitate and fund direct orthopedic specialty care for under- and uninsured musicians, educate the public on how to minimize or prevent musician-specific injuries, conduct and publish research on the unique diagnostic and treatment issues facing all musicians, and build a digital platform and surgeon network to care for musicians regardless of where they are touring in the world. Started by a longtime friend of Costello's, orthopedic surgeon O. Alton Barron MD, it is overseen by a 14-member board of volunteers from the business, music, and healthcare professions including Costello and his wife, musician Diana Krall.
