Forty years after they sang together on record on “The Only Flame in Town,” Daryl Hall and Elvis Costello will tour together as co-headliners this summer, hitting the road in June and July for a 22-city outing.

The Live Nation-promoted tour begins June 2 in Troutdale, Oregon and wraps up July 25 in Vienna, Virginia.

General tickets go on sale March 15 at 10 a.m. local time. Artist presales will begin this coming Monday, also at 10 local time.

Key stops along the way include four shows in the Southern California area: Santa Barbara June 14, San Diego June 16, Los Angeles’ Greek Theatre on June 18 and Rancho Mirage on June 21.

The double-header will also hit Seattle early in its run, on June 6, and Las Vegas on June 23, before moving to the Northeast for the tour’s second half, including shows in Philadelphia on July 10, Boston on July 14 and New York City’s Radio City Music Hall on July 16.


Hall had done a series of recent tours with Todd Rundgren as the featured opening act. If those shows are any indication, it seems possible Hall and Costello may join their voices at some point during the night, as the Hall/Rundgren tours featured the two artists together for part of the show.

Costello will be accompanied on all the dates by his backing band of the last two decades, the Imposters, which has a prominently billed Charlie Sexton as what is looking to be a semi-permanent sit-in second guitarist. Costello most recently toured as a headliner with Nick Lowe as his opening act.

“It’s fantastic to be able to rekindle a musical relationship,” Hall said in a statement. In his, Costello said, “We are looking forward to kicking off the show in style in the certainty that Daryl will deliver a slam-bang finish.”
