Elvis Costello & The Imposters and Blondie are all set to unite for a summer tour of North America. The co-headlining, 13-date jaunt launches on 20 July in Bethel, New York and wraps on 10 August in Seattle, Washington.
Artist pre-sale tickets are available on Tuesday, 2 April from noon, and a general on-sale begins Saturday, 6 April at 10 a.m. local time via the Live Nation website.
Costello and Blondie share some history, having both emerged from the late 1970s New Wave movement. At one point in 1979, both acts were vying for supremacy at the top of the UK album charts with their respective third albums, the former’s Armed Forces and the latter’s Parallel Lines. Also, in the mid-Nineties, Costello and Blondie singer Debbie Harry collaborated on a track with the Jazz Passengers.
Elvis Costello & The Imposters issued their most recent album, Look Now, in 2018. Blondie released their 11th studio, Pollinator, in 2017 and both records received widespread acclaim from the media. During their recent live runs, both bands performed at the 2018 Riot Fest.
