Attendees at the Elvis Costello concert in Harpa, the concert and conference center in Reykjavík, yesterday evening said the atmosphere had been great. The musician had asked for requests for songs through his website before the concert.

Costello, whose right name is Declan McManus, has been in Iceland since Friday and will stay a few more days, Morgunblaðið reports.
He has been in Iceland before; in 2003 he came here with Diana Krall, who was his fiancé at the time and is currently his wife.
Originally, Costello’s concert was to be held on November 21, 2011, but he had to postpone it as his father had fallen ill.
Costello isn’t the only veteran English singer-songwriter who has thrown a concert in Iceland recently. At the end of May Bryan Ferry performed at two concerts in Harpa to the delight of the audience and critics.
