Elvis Costello & The Imposters are playing Vegas for the first time in four years.

Along with special guest Charlie Sexton, the band is due to play the Pearl at the Palms on at 7:30 p.m. June 27 on the “We’re All Going On A Summer Holiday” tour. Tickets start at $55 (not including fees) and go on sale 10 a.m. Friday at ticketmaster.com.

A trailblazer in the new-wave movement in the late-1970s, Costello has toured with The Layabouts, otherwise known as The Imposters: Steve Nieve, Pete Thomas, Davey Faragher and joined by Texas guitarist Sexton. The band has embarked on three tours in the U.S. and one in the U.K. and northern Europe.

Most recently Costello played the ambitious “100 Songs and More” over 10 shows at the Gramercy Theater in New York. He performed more than 230 original songs, repeating only three titles.

Live Nation has been busy booking the Palms, announcing Monday that Sammy Hagar would play the room in July.

The 68-year-old Costello most recently played Vegas, co-headlining with Blondie, at the Pearl in July 2019. Prior to that, Costello opened Brooklyn Bowl in March 2014, backed by the Roots for a two-night, sold-out engagement.

Costello was forced to cancel his 2018 tour to treat what reps described as “a very aggressive tumor.” He called off a six-show series at Encore Theater at the Wynn the previous February, citing “unforeseen circumstances.”

Costello’s name is mentioned in the Righteous Brothers’ stage show at South Point Showroom, through a funny anecdote told by co-founder and rock legend, Bill Medley, who says, “We were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, along with Elvis (pause) Costello. That’s true.” It is. Happened in 2003.
