Elvis Costello and Blondie Announce Co-Headlining Tour
Elvis Costello & the Imposters and Blondie have announced a co-headlining U.S. tour that will run from July 20 to Aug. 10.
You can see the full list of 13 dates below.
Tickets go on sale via the band’s fan clubs at noon local time today, with general sales starting April 6 at 10AM local time via Live Nation.
Costello & the Imposters – Steve Nieve, Davey Faragher and Pete Thomas – released their latest album, Look Now, last year. Some of the material had been part of their live set for years without ever having been recorded.
“I knew if we could make an album with the scope of Imperial Bedroom and some of the beauty and emotion of Painted From Memory, we would really have something,” Costello said.

Blondie’s most recent release, 2017’s Pollinator, featured collaborations with outside writers. Guitarist Chris Stein explained their reasoning, telling Billboard that "we need to be releasing more music. Guys like Drake, releasing single songs in quantity, are the ones that are tuned in to what's going on. It's like somebody shredded the music industry, threw the pieces up in the air and we're seeing the patterns as they fall."
