Elvis Costello’s “Imperial Bedroom & Other Chambers” tour takes songs from the 1982 album, “Imperial Bedroom” as the starting point for the concert. Standout songs from the album include “Beyond Belief”, “Almost Blue” and “Man Out of Time.” These timeless classics have remained in Costello’s repertoire throughout the years.
The Imposters join Costello on the tour, and help add to the evening. The band includes Pete Thomas on drums, Davey Faragher on bass and vocals, Steve Nieve on piano and keyboards, and accompanying vocalists Kitten Kuroi and YahZarah. With the band’s renditions of various classic songs, the pairing with Costello makes for an unforgettable show. A special guest for the show will be announced at a later date.
“The first concert announced as part of our partnership with AEG Live continues to build the history of The Classic Amphitheater,” said RIR President Dennis Bickmeier. “For the 25th Anniversary season of The Classic Amphitheater, we are honored to celebrate with the iconic Elvis Costello.”
This year marks the 25th Anniversary of The Classic Amphitheater. The partnership with AEG Live continues the rich history of concerts at The Classic Amphitheater. With acts like Aerosmith, Hank Williams, Jr., and Bob Dylan all performing over the years, The Classic Amphitheater has and continues to host some of the best in the music industry. Elvis Costello & The Imposters will welcome a new generation of concert goers to the The Classic Amphitheater as part of the 25th Anniversary celebration.
