Elvis Costello Announces East Coast Tour Dates

Elvis Costello has announced a solo tour featuring 13 dates along the east coast. The trek begins November 2 at Burlington, Vermont's Flynn Center PAC and concludes November 19 at Orono, Maine's Collins Center. The east coast tour is Costello's first in over a decade.

Costello's collab with the Roots, Wise Up Ghost, is due September 17. According to Questlove, the drummer and bandleader of the Roots, the musicians hooked up after Elvis appeared multiple times on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, a program for which the Roots are the house act:

"After [his] third appearance, we liked him so much we were like, 'Hey, why don't we make a record?' What went from being one song to be released on Record Store Day became 'Why don't we try four songs?' Now we have a brilliant album."
