Elvis Costello Announces North American Summer Tour
Elvis Costello has announced North American tour dates for this summer.
Billed as the We're All Going on a Summer Holiday tour, the shows will begin on June 7 in Costello's adopted home city of Vancouver. He and the Imposters, featuring special guest Charlie Sexton, a longtime guitarist for Bob Dylan's band, will then appear in cities across the U.S., from Los Angeles to New York. The tour, which includes support from Nick Lowe and Los Straitjackets, will conclude on July 14 in Philadelphia.
You can see a complete list of concert dates below. According to a press release, more dates are expected later in 2023.
Costello and Lowe were on the road together last year, marking the first time the duo had shared a stage for such a run since 1989. Lowe, who produced Costello's first five albums, from 1977's My Aim Is True through 1981's Trust, also penned one of Costello's signature songs, "(What's So Funny 'Bout) Peace, Love and Understanding." "We really looked up to Nick Lowe, but he is a lot taller than me," Costello joked onstage in NYC last year.
Tickets for all shows will be available starting on March 31.
