Elvis Costello & the Imposters announced a summer 2022 tour supporting their recently issued LP The Boy Named If.

The North American trek launches Aug. 6 in Huber Heights, Ohio, and wraps Sept. 3 in Las Vegas. Nick Lowe & Los Straitjackets will open 11 of the 15 currently announced dates, marking the two acts’ first tour since 1989. Nicole Atkins will join for two of the 15 shows.

Tickets go on sale on Feb. 18 at 10AM local time through Costello’s official site.

The Imposters — keyboardist Steve Nieve, drummer Pete Thomas and bassist Davey Faragher — will be rounded out by guitarist Charlie Sexton, who accompanied the band during their October 2021 Hello Again tour. "Pete Thomas, Steve Nieve and I have been spinning around like your favorite 45rpm for [45] years, and let's be clear, Davey Faragher isn't anyone's deputy," Costello said in a statement.

"The Attractions could have no more made [The Boy Named If] than we have any desire to time travel back to the 1970s. This is happening right now in 2022, we are coming at you, big as life and twice as ugly."

Costello released The Boy Named If in mid-January, delivering what UCR described as "the effortless and melodic poise that marked his earliest albums."
