Elvis Costello & The Imposters have rolled out a 15-city North American summer run with Nick Lowe & Los Straitjackets serving as the opening act for most of the gigs. Nicole Atkins will do the honors on two early stops on the tour, which kicks off on August 6th in Huber Heights, Ohio at Rose Music Center at The Height and runs through September 3rd when the trek winds down in Las Vegas at the Theater at Virgin Hotels.
Variety reported longtime Bob Dylan guitarist Charlie Sexton will once again be playing as part of the Imposters. Sexton was first enlisted by Costello when keyboardist Stevie Nieve was unable to make some shows last time out after contracting Covid. Tickets go on sale this Friday (February 18th) at 10 a.m. local time, with more ticketing information available at elviscostello.com.
Elvis Costello and Nick Lowe go back nearly 50 years, with Lowe producing such Costello classics as My Aim Is True (1977), This Year's Model (1978), Armed Forces (1979), Get Happy!! (1980), Trust (1981), Blood & Chocolate (1986), and Brutal Youth (1994).
