"Basingstoke Postponement Announcement"

"Regretfully, we have to announce that tonight's Spectacular Spinning Songbook concert by Elvis Costello and the Imposters at the Anvil Theatre in Basingstoke has been postponed due to short term vocal fatigue and doctors advice.

Elvis Costello sent the following message to ticket holders...

"I would like to apologize to our friends in Basingstoke for not being able to sing this evening but I would not want to end this Spectacular Spinning Songbook tour of the U.K. with what I know could only be a sub-standard performance. I thank you for your understanding and I look forward to our rescheduled show in your fine theatre.

Our recent "Revolver Tour" dates have joyful, comical, humbling, inspiring and restoring occasions after a very difficult personal time. I want to send my sincere thanks to all those who attended, span the Wheel, swung the Hammer of Songs, shook a tailfeather and lifted their voices. It's been good to be back and that goes for the Imposters too.

Thanks must also go to our special guests, Bible Code Sundays, the MacManus Brothers, Chris Difford, Ian Prowse, Russell Crowe, Martin Belmont, Glenn Tilbrook, Mr. Nick Lowe and Albert's Giant Royal Organ."

We are presently seeking a suitable date for a re-scheduled Basingstoke concert.

Watch this space for future announcements about new "Revolver" dates.

Elvis Costello and the Imposters can be seen at the Cornbury Festival on Saturday June 30th."
