The 22-city tour kicks off June 2 at McMenamins Edgefield in Troutdale, Oregon, making stops at Los Angeles’ The Greek Theatre, Las Vegas’ Fontainebleau Las Vegas, Toronto’s Budweiser Stage, Boston’s MGM Music Hall at Fenway and New York’s Radio City Music Hall before wrapping up in Vienna, Virginia, at Wolf Trap Filene Center on July 25.

Costello said, “We are looking forward to kicking off the show in style in the certainty that Daryl will deliver a slam-bang finish.”

Rock & Roll Hall of Famer Hall had an exciting 2023 on a solo tour with longtime friend and fellow Hall of Fame inductee support act Todd Rundgren.

And, a new season of his award-winning "Live from Daryl’s House" returned Nov. 1 on Hall’s dedicated YouTube channel.

Elvis Costello & The Imposters with Charlie Sexton toured recently to rave reviews. The Nashville Scene wrote that "Costello is proving he’s an indefatigable force of nature, and one of the greatest showmen in the history of rock ’n’ roll”; while in St. Louis, the Riverfront Times concluded "Elvis Costello showed St. Louis Friday that he’s earned his legend status.”

The Imposters are Steve Nieve, Pete Thomas and Davey Faragher. They will once again be joined on the road by guitarist Charlie Sexton.

Tickets will be available starting with an artist presale beginning Monday, March 11. Additional presales will run throughout the week ahead of the general on-sale beginning at 10 a.m. Friday, March 15, at DarylHall.com and ElvisCostello.com.

More About Daryl Hall

Daryl Hall is a modern-day renaissance man, an inductee into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, the star of his very own award-winning web series, “Live from Daryl’s House,” as well as a successful venue owner with Daryl’s House, a restored venue and live music space in Pawling, New York.

The Philadelphia soul man is still achieving career milestones more than four decades later, continuing to perform with his band to sold-out venues everywhere.

It’s been quite a decade for Hall, including the opening of Daryl’s House, a combination world-class restaurant and performance venue, which he kicked off on Oct. 31, 2014. The popular venue also serves as home base for his multi award-winning “Live from Daryl’s House.”

The show, which began as a “light bulb” moment for Hall when he launched it in 2007 as a free webcast, has set the standard for artist-initiated projects. The groundbreaking series provides a mix of legends and the next generation of superstars. “Live From Daryl’s House” streams on Hall’s YouTube channel.

Previous episodes of “Live From Daryl’s House” have featured a diverse mix of veteran and new performers from rock, soul, country and R&B, including rock legends Sammy Hagar, Joe Walsh, Cheap Trick, Tommy Shaw, Kenny Loggins, Todd Rundgren, Nick Lowe, Dave Stewart and Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top; soul and R&B artists The O’Jays, Aaron Neville, Aloe Blacc, Kandace Springs, Elle King, Wyclef Jean, Smokey Robinson, Cee Lo Green, Booker T & The MGs, and Sharon Jones; big-league singer/songwriters such as Ben Folds, Rob Thomas, Jason Mraz, Gavin DeGraw, Goo Goo Dolls’ John Rzeznik and Fall Out Boy’s Patrick Stump; country artists such as Shelby Lynne; and has helped break new acts Fitz & The Tantrums, Grace Potter & The Nocturnals, Neon Trees, Johnnyswim, Parachute and Anderson East. The latest episodes of the show feature Squeeze’s Glenn Tilbrook, Blackberry Smoke’s Charlie Starr, Andy Grammer, Lisa Loeb, Robert Fripp and Howard Jones.

Hall has come a long way, and he’s still got plenty of mileage left in a career that’s taken him from the streets of Philadelphia to the halls of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland. The best is yet to come.

More About Elvis Costello

Elvis Costello is a writer and part-time musician who made a number of records in the 20th century, some of which are still remembered today.

He was born in London and raised there and in Liverpool.

Costello is the composer or lyricist of over 600 published titles, including 15 songs co-written with Paul McCartney and renowned collaborations with Allen Toussaint, the Brodsky Quartet and T Bone Burnett.

Costello’s songwriting alliance with Burt Bacharach began in 1995 with the song, “God Give Me Strength,” which led to the 1998 album, “Painted From Memory,” before their work was collected in 2023 on the four-album set, “The Songs Of Bacharach & Costello.”

Costello songs have been recorded by Roy Orbison, Johnny Cash, Chet Baker, Dusty Springfield, Solomon Burke, George Jones, Linda Ronstadt and Bjork, while the artists with whom he has written songs are Loretta Lynn, Carole King, Rosanne Cash, Kris Kristofferson, and his wife, Diana Krall.

Working purely as a lyricist, Costello has provided words for the music of Billy Strayhorn, Oscar Peterson and for 12 Charles Mingus compositions and, as a composer, set 12 unpublished lyrics by Bob Dylan.

2024 will see the opening of “A Face In The Crowd,” Sarah Ruhl’s stage adaptation of the Budd Schulberg story for which Costello composed the songs. “A Face In The Crowd” will open at the Young Vic in London, directed by Kwame Kwei-Armah and produced by Adam Kenwright.

Costello is the author of “Unfaithful Music & Disappearing Ink,” a more than 600-page memoir that has been translated into six languages. He has received a range of awards over his 45-year-career, of which the induction into the Songwriters Hall of Fame is probably the most significant.

Although he holds two honorary doctorates in music – one from the University of Liverpool and another from the New England Conservatory – Costello is known for playing the guitar with almost no regard for common sense.

Costello currently performs with The Imposters; his long-time companions: drummer Pete Thomas and pianist Steve Nieve, bassist of 23 years Davey Faragher, and their special guest, Texas guitarist Charlie Sexton.
