Elvis Costello is going it alone this fall for his first solo tour in more than a decade.

The prolific singer-songwriter is known for hits like “Alison,” “Radio, Radio,” “Pump It Up”, “Oliver’s Army”, “Watching the Detectives”, “She” and “(What’s So Funny ‘Bout) Peace Love and Understanding”, penned by Nick Lowe.

Elvis Costello has won multiple awards in his career, including a Grammy Award, and has twice been nominated for the Brit Award for Best British Male. In 2003, Elvis Costello and the Attractions were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. In 2004, Rolling Stone ranked Costello number 80 on their list of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time.

Costello will release Wise Up Ghost — his collaboration with hip-hop band and Philadelphia natives, The Roots — on Sept. 17. Costello’s last solo album was 2010’s National Ransom.
