Elvis Costello
 will bring is his first solo tour in more than a decade to Easton on Nov. 27. 

A Grammy winning artist, he is known for songs such as "Alison," "Radio, Radio," "Pump It Up", “Oliver’s Army”, "Watching the Detectives”, “She” and “(What’s So Funny ‘Bout) Peace Love and Understanding."

His tour coincides with the release of Wise Up Ghost, a collaboration with Philadelphia natives The Roots.

The Beach Boys, one of rock music's longest-running acts, returns to the State Theatre later this month.

The group, led by Mike Love and Brian Johnston, comes to Easton for a show Thursday, Sept. 26 at 7:30 p.m.

Wanda Sykes has hosted her own talk show, and has been featured prominently on the sitcoms Curb Your Enthusiasm and The New Adventures of Old Christine. Her State Theatre show is scheduled for Saturday Sept. 21 at 8 p.m.

Lewis Black is a comedian, actor and author appearing Thursday, Nov. 21. As the theater puts in on its website, his "performances provide a cathartic release of anger and disillusionment for his audience. Lewis yells so they don't have to."
