Elvis Costello & The Roots at Brooklyn Bowl in 2013 (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)
Elvis Costello

Last year, power pop veteran Elvis Costello and alternative rap band The Roots teamed up for a collaborative album, Wise Up Ghost, which they celebrated with a live show at Brooklyn Bowl. Now the pair have announced more dates together, including the two-night opening party for Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas and another NYC-area show on March 12 at The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, where Elvis recently played two nights on his solo tour. Tickets for the Cap show go on sale Friday (1/31) at noon.

The Cap show is four days after Elvis Costello & The Imposters play Caesars in Atlantic CIty (3/8). There's a few tickets left for that show.

Meanwhile, The Roots are playing a Super Bowl show tonight (1/30) with Run DMC and Busta Rhymes, which will stream live on Rolling Stone.

All dates are listed, along with a video from Wise Up Ghost, below...

They are not fading in time and always still that kind of style and great voices.

To think there was once a time when your parents had to pretend to give a fuck about Elvis Costello to appear cool.

No hate, but this song is kind of annoying as hell. I've seen it in youtube commercials so much that I wanted to see if it was good cause the roots are great, but hearing it just makes me mad
