Elvis Costello adds extra dates to UK tour

Elvis Costello and the Impostors have added two new dates to their forthcoming UK tour.

Costello will now play a third night at London's Royal Albert Hall on June 6. A June 9 show for Milton Keynes Theatre has also been added. A full tour schedule is below.

Costello recently announced a Record Store Day team-up album with The Roots. The Roots, hip hop legends in their own right, first met Costello when he played on the Jimmy Fallon Show, where the Roots serve as house band.

Well what went from being one song to be released on Record Store Day became – why don’t we try four songs? Now we have a brilliant album. And, in the whole history of The Roots, I have never bragged on an album first, but I actually love this record.”

Fri 31- Birmingham, Symphony Hall
