Elvis Costello & The Imposters celebrate the release of their widely acclaimed new album, The Boy Named If, with a summer tour titled “The Boy Named If & Other Favourites.” The first announced date is in Huber Heights, OH on August 6th and the tour closes in Las Vegas, NV on September 3rd. Costello will also return to Massey Hall, Toronto, visiting New York City, Wolf Trap, Denver, Anaheim and many other cities near you with more dates to be announced. Select cities will also include an opening set by Nick Lowe & Los Straitjackets, the first time since 1989 that the pair have toured together.

Costello and his band, The Imposters – Steve Nieve, Pete Thomas and Davey Faragher – will once again be joined on stage by Texas guitarist, Charlie Sexton, who also played the twenty-two date, “Hello Again” tour in October 2021, when six of the then unreleased songs, now heard on ‘The Boy Named If’, were performed for the very first time to incredible audience reactions. In the OC Register, Peter Larsen wrote that “over the course of 26 songs and nearly two-and-a-half hours, Elvis Costello and the Imposters delivered a terrific night that time-traveled across Costello’s songbook, past, present, and future.”

The Imposters have been Costello’s bandmates for the last twenty years or as Costello put it recently, “Pete Thomas, Steve Nieve and I have been spinning around like your favorite 45rpm for forty-five years and let’s be clear, Davey Faragher isn’t anyone’s deputy. The Attractions could have no more made ‘The Boy Named If’ than we have any desire to time travel back to the 1970s. This is happening right now in 2022, we are coming at you, big as life and twice as ugly.”

Select cities will include an opening set by Nick Lowe & Los Straitjackets.

Tickets go on sale Friday, February 18th at 10am local time. Go to elviscostello.com
