Elvis Costello kicks off North American tour next week

Elvis Costello & The Imposters are set to embark on their tour next week. Here is the exciting news below. And while you wait to catch Costello and company on tour, make sure to get a good listen of the outstanding new album Look Now. A true masterwork!



Elvis Costello will kick off his "Look Now And Then... It's Elvis Costello & The Imposters" tour one week from today, bringing his new album Look Now (Concord Records) and other favorites to 20 North American cities in November and December. 'Look Now' marks Costello's first new album with The Imposters - Steve Nieve (keyboards), Davey Faragher (bass) and Pete Thomas (drums) - in a decade. The album has garnered an abundance of critical praise:

"Sharp, sophisticated...effortlessly tuneful...the kind of wry, well-observed pop classicism that's been the hallmark of his genius." - Rolling Stone

“Costello has made a great cake of an album that doesn’t really sound much like any of the 30 before it.” – Variety

“These are very human songs with elegant melodies and arrangements... expertly applied in Costello’s superlative songwriting.” – Associated Press

“His deft pen provides sharp studies of romance and murky motives...lush, sophisticated pop.” – Billlboard

“There are plenty of moments here reaffirming Costello’s position at the forefront of his generation’s most gifted composers.” – USA Today

“A triumph for Costello, a showcase for how he can enliven a mastery of form with a dramatist’s eye...'Look Now' is more than a mere set of songs – it’s a record worth getting lost within.” –Pitchfork

“Meticulously crafted, clever, polished...you can’t imagine a group of surer hands for him to be working with.” - NPR Music
