The 23-date North American tour is scheduled to begin on June 7 in Vancouver and extends through July 14 with a final show in Philadelphia. Elvis Costello and the Imposters will stop in Reno, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Phoenix, Omaha, Nashville, Bridgeport, Boston, Baltimore, New York, and more.

General sale for the We’re All Going on a Summer Holiday tour begins Friday, March 31 at 10 a.m. local time.

Last summer, Elvis Costello and the Imposters performed a number of concerts with Nick Lowe and Los Straightjackets opening the show, so the lineup is quite familiar. That tour followed the release of Costello’s album The Boy Named If. More recently, the musician shared the deluxe edition of The Songs of Bacharach and Costello, a collaborative album created with Burt Bacharach, who died earlier this year at age 94.

“With Burt Bacharach, it was very different. It was predominantly music first and often one or the other of us would make the first musical statement,” Costello told Rolling Stone last year. “In some cases, I wrote a melody to which he would write the bridge. Sometimes writing every other line would come from one or the other of us once we’d got a dialogue going. But then my job would be to respond to the mood and the implication of that music, what would serve that music in a narrative. The mood of the music was very apparently melancholic and reflective, so I didn’t want to overcomplicate lyrics with lots of showy images.”
