Published Feb 27, 2017After debuting their "Imperial Bedroom and Other Chambers" tour last fall, Elvis Costello & the Imposters have revealed they'll be bringing the show back to North America for another round of live dates this summer.
The run of dates will take place in June and July, with Costello and company performing a total of 20 dates throughout the two months. A lone Canadian appearance will bring the band to Toronto's Sony Centre on July 20.
A press release reveals that tour setlists will draw from Costello's 1983 effort Imperial Bedroom as a starting point, though they will go beyond simply playing it through front to back.
"We never intended to recite this book from cover to cover," Costello added in a statement. "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."
On the second part of the tour title, Costello hinted, "You never know who or what you are going to encounter down the corridor to those 'Other Chambers.'"
