The legendary Elvis Costello and his band The Imposters — featuring longtime cohorts Steve Nieve on keyboards and Pete Thomas on drums — are coming to Cincinnati's Taft Theatre this fall.

Tickets for the Nov. 19 concert ($43-$103) go on sale this Friday, June 28 at 10 a.m.

The tour is being dubbed "Just Trust Elvis Costello and The Imposters." The press release for the tour explains: "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?' "

Costello recently received O.B.E. (Officer of the Order of the British Empire) honors from Queen Elizabeth but that doesn't mean the concert will be fancier than normal.

"Despite his recent anomalous inclusion in the Queen’s Birthday Honour’s List, Elvis Costello O.B.E. will not be putting on the airs, but putting on the style for this unique evening of song and mischief," the tour press release states.
