Elvis Costello to embark on 16-date UK tour
Date Posted: 06/09/12
Elvis Costello is to head out on a 16-date UK tour with his backing band the Imposters and the Spectacular Spinning Songbook choosing the set list.
Fans of Costello should book Birmingham hotels for Friday, May 31st to attend the first date at the Symphony Hall. He then heads to a variety of cities including, Cardiff, London, Sheffield, Blackpool and Edinburgh, before finishing at Brighton's Brighton Centre on Saturday, June 22nd.
The Spectacular Spinning Songbook, which was first experienced during the Costello Sings Again tour in 1986, is a game-show that helps to choose the set from 40 songs of hits, rarities and covers that come straight out of left field.
Audience members come to the stage where they get a chance to spin 'The Wheel' to pick the song. The singer first brought it back in the spring of last year to much acclaim from his fans.
Costello first made a name for himself in the London pub rock scene in the early 1970s, before becoming a key part of the British punk and new wave movement. His four decade career has seen him win numerous awards, as well an induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
