Elvis Costello and the Attractions have announced that they’ll be touring in the U.S. in 2024. Titled the 7-0-7 tour, it is set to kick off on January 10 in Tallahassee, Florida. The band will perform in cities across the South, with the run ending on February 2 in Wilmington, North Carolina.
This past summer, Elvis Costello and the Imposters—with their special guest Charlie Sexton—embarked on the “We’re All Going On A Summer Holiday” tour. The 23-date tour was produced by Live Nation. It commenced on June 7 in Vancouver, B.C. Canada, and included stops at The Greek Theatre in Los Angeles and the Beacon Theatre in NYC. Nick Lowe & Los Straitjackets opened all of the coast-to-coast dates.
Also recently, Costello played the highly-acclaimed “100 Songs and More,” a ten-night engagement at the Gramercy Theater, NYC at which he played more than 230 original songs, repeating only three titles.
The shows that began in solo performance went on to spring nightly surprises, involving everything from an ensemble including musical saw, fiddle, and Uillean pipes to an eight-person Broadway vocal chorus led by M.D. Rob Mathes, duets with jazz bassist, Endea Owens and, from the halfway point, performing with Steve Nieve at the piano before adding two different horn sections, led by trumpet player and arranger, Michael Leonhart.
The stand included guest vocal appearances by Rebecca Lovell, La Marisol, and JSWISS and concluded with a more than three hour finale performance with the full band lineup.
