Said the band in the news release;
The tour is entitled, “Just Trust” in answer to the musical questions: “Will they play my favourite song?,” or, “Are they going to frighten the horses with a lot of excellent songs that are rarely performed?,” not to mention, “Can I expect the hits of yesteryear and those of tomorrow?”
To which we say: Just Trust Elvis Costello and The Imposters.
This superlative ensemble – Steve Nieve on keyboards, Pete Thomas on drums, and bass and vocalist Davey Faragher – are once again augmented by singers Kitten Kuroi and Briana Lee, all of whom were heard on the acclaimed 2018 Concord Records release, ‘Look Now,’ numbers from which will surely find their rightful place among the highlights from one of the most formidable song catalogues in popular music.
Despite his recent anomalous inclusion in the Queen’s Birthday Honour’s List, Elvis Costello O.B.E. will not be putting on the airs, but putting on the style for this unique evening of song and mischief.
Get it while you can.

Regarding Costello’s previous health scare, which led to some cancelled dates in 2018, he recently told us that it was all a bit over-exaggerated:
“I would’ve not said anything about it, because I didn’t want to worry my family or my friends that I don’t speak to every day. It kind of sharpened me a little bit, because you don’t know the future. But then I had it taken care of, and thought I was all back, in terms of my strength — because the operation does knock you out a little bit — and I just miscalculated. I was in the middle of a tour in Europe and I realized that I couldn’t do my best. Once I let the rest of the dates go, I had to offer a coherent explanation, rather than just be thought of as being flaky.
“Unfortunately, some of the reports were twisted a little bit to make it sound like it was a much more serious situation. It was really just a question of missed timing in the recovery.”
