The show was the second of two nights at the venue which saw the two artists also cover a few of Costello’s classics in what was described as an updated style to suit the Roots and covers of songs by The Specials and John Lennon.

Joining the artists on stage were Diane Birch for Tripwire from Ghost and La Marisoul (Marisol Hernandez) from La Santa Cecilia, on three songs.
