Elvis Costello and the Imposters are solid for a show at the North Charleston Performing Arts Center on Mon. July 18. Tickets go on sale on Fri. March 25 at 10 a.m.
Born and raised in London, Costello’s released his first solo record, My Aim is True, in 1977, just before assembling his first band, the Attractions. He quickly emerged as one of the most innovative and influential pop songwriters of the New Wave/punk era. He worked on dozens of solo and collaborative music and film projects through the 1980s, '90s, and 2000s. Costello and the Imposters released their last studio album, Momofuku, on Lost Highway in 2008.
Costello and the Imposters head out for two weeks of dates in May across the U.S. with the Spectacular Spinning Songbook, a monumental game-show-type wheel that features 40 song titles, including hits, rarities, and covers. It’s the first time in 25 years Costello will let most of his set list be chosen by audience members who get invited on stage to spin the wheel. Word has it that the July concert at the PAC will feature the big wheel as well.
Tickets will be available at the Coliseum box office, ticketmaster.com, Ticketmaster outlets (including select Publix grocery stores), and by phone at (800) 745-3000. For more info, visit elviscostello.com and northcharlestoncoliseum-pac.com.
