Elvis Costello & the Imposters

Elvis Costello & the Imposters will hit the road again this fall, as sole headliner after their summer excursion with Blondie.
The tour is entitled “Just Trust” in answer to the musical questions: “Will they play my favorite song?” or “Are they going to frighten the horses with a lot of excellent songs that are rarely performed?,” not to mention, “Can I expect the hits of yesteryear and those of tomorrow?”
To which we say: Just Trust Elvis Costello & the Imposters.
This superlative ensemble — Steve Nieve on keyboards, Pete Thomas on drums and bass and vocalist Davey Faragher — are once again augmented by singers Kitten Kuroi and Briana Lee, all of whom were heard on the acclaimed 2018 Concord Records release, “Look Now,” numbers from which will surely find their rightful place among the highlights from one of the most formidable song catalogs in popular music.
Despite his recent anomalous inclusion in the Queen’s Birthday Honour’s List, Elvis Costello O.B.E. will not be putting on the airs, but putting on the style for this unique evening of song and mischief.
Get it while you can.
