Elvis Costello is hitting the road this spring and summer for a North American tour that will reprise his lineup last summer, performing with his band The Imposters — augmented by guitarist Charlie Sexton — and sharing the stage with old friend Nick Lowe & Los Straitjackets.
The 23-date tour opens June 7 in Vancouver, B.C., and runs through a July 14 date in Philadelphia, with shows in between in Bend, Oregon; Los Angeles; Oklahoma City; Omaha, Nebraska; Milwaukee, Wisconsin; Lenox, Massachusetts; Boston,; Syracuse, New York; and more.
A pre-sale for all shows begins 10 a.m. local time Wednesday, March 29, and the general on-sale follows at 10 a.m. Friday, March 31; see elviscostello.com for full details.
Costello will be backed by The Imposters — featuring former Attractions Steve Nieve and Pete Thomas, and ex-Cracker bassist Davey Faragher — with additional guitarist Charlie Sexton, who toured with the band last year as well. Opening the dates will be Costello’s old friend, producer and “(What’s So Funny ‘Bout) Peace, Love and Understanding” songwriter Lowe, who himself will be backed by Los Straitjackets.
