Elvis Costello and the Imposters are hitting the road this summer in support of their latest release, The Boy Named If.
Nick Lowe and Los Straitjackets will serve as the opening act on a handful of shows, making it the first time since 1989 that Lowe and Costello have toured together. Nicole Atkins will also serve as support on select dates.
“Pete Thomas, Steve Nieve, and I have been spinning around like your favorite 45rpm for 45 years, and let’s be clear, Davey Faragher isn’t anyone’s deputy,” Costello said of his bandmates recently. “The Attractions could have no more made The Boy Named If than we have any desire to time travel back to the Seventies. This is happening right now in 2022, we are coming at you, big as life and twice as ugly.”

Who is Elvis Costello?
Elvis Costello launched his career as part of London's pub rock scene in the early 1970s. He would go on to become one of the most prominent figures of the British punk and new wave movement that hit near the end of the decade. Costello's breakthrough arrived in 1977 with the release of his platinum-selling debut album My Aim Is True, which highlighted his distinct style combining elements of punk rock and sophisticated lyrics with tones of new wave music. The album housed two of Costello's greatest hits with "Alison" and "(The Angels Wanna Wear My) Red Shoes." His second album This Year's Model brought continued success in 1978 (the first album he recorded with backing band the Attractions) as well as his third album the following year, Armed Forces, which featured his highest-charting single "Oliver's Army." Costello's career has yielded 24 solo albums, several prestigious awards (including an Academy Award), and influenced countless artists from a wide range of genres. He has been named one of Rolling Stone Magazine's 100 Greatest Artists of All Time and has been a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee since 2003.
