Thornton Tours with Elvis

Billy Bob Thorton’s country-tinged album tanked last year, but that’s not stopping the Monster’s Ball actor from touring. He’s in the midst of a nine-city, cross-country tour, playing the dark version of rockabilly as heard on his 2000 album, Private Radio. Thornton also joins rocker Elvis Costello for five shows, calling the rocker “one of our generation’s most prolific singer-songwriters.” 5/20/02
