Elvis plays 21 date autumn tour — full details

Record Mirror

Elvis Costello is going on tour again ... as Record Mirror exclusively revealed last week.

With his band The Attractions, Elvis is to play 21 dates in September and October ... and there'll be more to come!

This time round it will be a "straight" tour without a full country set or the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra who played with him last January at London's Royal Albert Hall.

But strings feature on the new album Imperial Bedroom which is released next week. It features 15 new Costello songs including the single "You Little Fool," but no new country numbers.

The tour follows a massive string of American dates which give the band six days' rest before setting off on their British jaunt.

Elvis kicks off at the Southampton Gaumont on September 11. Then: Oxford Apollo 12, Birmingham Bingley Hall 13, Sheffield City Hall 14, Manchester Apollo 16, Edinburgh Playhouse 17, Aberdeen Capital 18, Glasgow Tiffany's 20, Newcastle City Hall 21, Scarborough Futurist Theatre 22, Derby Assembly Rooms 23. Leicester De Montfort Hall 24, Ipswich Gaumont 26. Southend Cliffs Pavilion 27, Brighton Dome 28, Hemel Hempsead Pavilion 30, Wolverhampton Civic Hall October 1, Lancaster University 2, Bristol Locarno 4, Cardiff Top Rank 5 and Leeds University 6.

He will also play some "prestige" London dates which will be announced shortly. They will bring the total concert tally to around the 30 date mark.

How to book: Most tickets go on sale from box offices from June 24, although they are on sale slightly later at some venues.

They cost between £4 and £4.50 and record shops in Glasgow, Bristol, Cardiff and Birmingham will also be selling tickets.
