Elvis Costello Announces 2017 ‘Imperial Bedroom & Other Chambers’ U.S. Tour Dates
This summer, Elvis Costello will be repeating his “Imperial Bedroom & Other Chambers” tour. Today, he unveiled 23 dates across the U.S. over the course of seven weeks.
Costello will begin at the Greek Theatre in Berkeley, Calif., on June 3 and, after the June 21 show in Charlotte, N.C., will take nearly a month off. He'll return to the road on July 16 in Milwaukee before wrapping it up on July 25 in Providence, R.I. You can see all the dates below and get full ticketing information at his website.
He'll be traveling with his longtime band, the Imposters, and two backing vocalists, Kitten Kuroi and YahZarah. As with last year's brief stretch in select cities, he's spotlighting his 1982 album Imperial Bedroom, but refusing to play it in its entirety and sequence.
"We never intended to recite this book from cover to cover," he said in a press release. "Listen to our new arrangement of 'Tears Before Bedtime,' it gets straight to the real meaning of that song, the way we hear and feel it today. Back in 1982, I might have been a step or two ahead of our crowd in the tragic, romantic stakes but I sense that they've all caught up with me now."
