Elvis Costello & The Imposters announce new tour for 2020


Elvis Costello and The Imposters have announced a new show to the U.K. for their first tour of the decade in February and March, 2020. It will see Elvis Costello taking his enigmatic show on the road.

The tour is called the “Just Trust” Tour in answer to the musical questions that will always arise for any Costello tour: “Will they play my favourite song?,” or, “Are they going to frighten the horses with songs that are rarely performed and send some of their old nags off to pasture?” When ticket holders ask, “Can I expect the hits of yesteryear and those of tomorrow?” the answer is simply “Just Trust” Elvis Costello and The Imposters.

The tour opens on February 28th at the Eventim Olympia in Liverpool, the venue was a former circus on the West Derby Road and therefore found itself on the Costello’s bus route home from school during his years living on Merseyside. There will also be notable moments in Cardiff, where Costello returns to after a blistering performance in 2018 and in Sunderland where he will perform for the first time in 40 years.

Costello recently received a Hollywood Walk Of Fame Star alongside Spike Lee, Billy Idol, Burt Ward and his former video co-star, Julia Roberts and following in the footsteps of Fred Astaire, Ruby Keeler and Rin Tin Tin, among many, many other stars of stage, screen and the radio airwaves. In a year which also saw him take the accolade of OBE from the Royal family.

So while we can’t promise that Costello and his band will play all your favourite hits, we can promise that trusting Elvis Costello has never steered us wrong before.
