PORTLAND — British singer-songwriter Elvis Costello – whose 35-year career has included forays into punk, New Wave, and jazz standards – will perform at Portland’s State Theatre on July 28.

The 7:30 p.m. show – billed as Elvis Costello and The Imposters – was announced today on the theater’s website and Facebook page. Tickets are $45 and $75 and will go on sale 10 a.m. Friday.

Tickets will be available at the Cumberland County Civic Center box office by calling 800-745-3000, or online.

Costello, 56, burst onto the pop music scene with the album “My Aim Is True” in 1977, bolstered by the songs “Less Than Zero” and “Alison,” among others.

Costello was an instant favorite of college radio, indie rockers, and people who wanted to see rock music become more about songs and passion than the glamour and theatrics popular at that time.

He continued to record rock and pop into the 1980s, scoring the hit  “Everyday I Write the Book” in 1983. By the 1990s he was dabbling in classical, in cover songs, in jazz, and did a collaboration with pop songwriting legend Burt Bacharach.

He’s married to jazz singer Diana Krall, and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2003.
