Elvis Costello & The Imposters and Blondie stop at Mohegan Sun

2 April 2019

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Elvis Costello & The Imposters and Blondie will co-headline a coast-to-coast tour this summer. The 13-city tour will make a stop at Mohegan Sun Arena on Sunday, 21 July at 7 p.m.

Tickets are $75.00, $55.00 and $35.00 and go on sale Saturday, 6 April at 10 a.m. through Ticketmaster. Ticketmaster customers may log in online or call Ticketmaster’s national toll-free Charge By Phone number 1.800.745.3000. Tickets will also be available at the Mohegan Sun Box Office beginning on Sunday, 7 April at 10 a.m., subject to availability.

Elvis Costello's wide-ranging recording career began in 1977 with the release of My Aim Is True in a catalog that includes such diverse highlights as This Year's Model, Get Happy, Imperial Bedroom, King Of America, Blood & Chocolate, The Juliet Letters with the Brodsky Quartet, The River In Reverse with Allen Toussaint and Wise Up Ghost with The Roots.

Elvis Costello & The Imposters’ widely renowned Look Now was released in 2018 and of which Variety said, "It's so funny to be seeing him, after all this time, making a great cake of an album that doesn't really sound that much like any of the 30 before it." The catalog will soon include the E.P., Purse, containing songwriting collaborations with Burt Bacharach and Paul McCartney and musical settings of lyrics by Johnny Cash and Bob Dylan.

Since the release of their self-titled debut album in 1976, Blondie has brought the worlds of Rock, Punk, Disco and Ska together and racked up four indelible Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 hits – “Heart of Glass,” “Call Me,” “The Tide Is High” and “Rapture ” – as well as six No. 1s on the U.K. Singles Chart, including “Maria,” “Sunday Girl” and “Atomic.” Debbie Harry – genre-spanning visionary, complex songstress, incandescent front woman and style icon – and the band's boundary-pushing Pop have shaped the look and sound of many chart-topping female artists who have followed and have made Blondie widely recognized as one of the most influential bands of our time.

Ever the bona fide international ambassadors of New York cool, Blondie – vocalist-songwriter Debbie Harry, guitarist and co-writer Chris Stein, powerhouse drummer Clem Burke, and longtime band members bassist Leigh Foxx, guitarist Tommy Kessler and keyboardist Matt Katz-Bohen – has become and still remains a true national treasure; one whose influence both shaped and continues to inform the worlds of music, fashion, art and pop culture. Blondie's chart-topping success, fearless spirit and rare longevity led to an induction into the Rock 'N' Roll Hall of Fame in 2006, a NME Godlike Genius Award in 2014, a Q Award for Outstanding Contribution to Music in 2016, and more than 50 million albums sold worldwide to date.
