Explanation of the tour's title may offer fans some insight on what to expect from the shows. A statement reveals, "The tour is entitled, 'Just Trust' in answer to the musical questions: 'Will they play my favourite song?,' or, 'Are they going to frighten the horses with a lot of excellent songs that are rarely performed?,' not to mention, 'Can I expect the hits of yesteryear and those of tomorrow?'
The Just Trust tour begins Oct. 23 in Charlottesville, Va., and wraps up Nov. 26 in Milwaukee, Wis, making stops along the way in Nashville, Tenn., Atlanta, New Orelans, Memphis, Chicago and Minneapolis, to name a few.
In addition to mainstay band members Steve Nieve, Pete Thomas and Davey Faragher, singers Kitten Kuroi and Briana Lee will join Costello on stage, the same personnel heard on the group's latest release, 2018's Look Now, which marked Costello's first studio album in five years.
The extended road run is double good news for fans, as this time last year Costello revealed he'd been diagnosed with cancer and was forced to cancel his remaining European tour dates to focus on recovery, which he has since confirmed is going well. Earlier this month, he was awarded the prestigious O.B.E. honor, the title of Officer of the Order of the British Empire, for "services to music." Next month he and the Imposters head out on a co-headlining stint with Blondie for the cleverly coined Blondie & The Beastly E.C. tour
