Elvis Costello is proud to announce the return of the “Spectacular
Spinning Songbook” to Los Angeles on the heels of 2 triumphant sold out
shows at LA's famed Wiltern Theatre last spring. Fans who missed these
shows will be able to see it live on April 17th.
The tour also makes its 2012 Canadian debut at The Orpheum Theatre in
Vancouver, BC on April 10th.
At each performance, select fans are invited onstage to spin the Wheel,
helping to create new sets at each performance from a collection of 40
banners including hits, rarities, and a few surprises. This tour has
marked the Wheel's first appearance in 25 years and includes an on-stage
go-go cage and "Society Lounge" in addition to the monumental game-show
With set-lists boasting over 200 different songs, the tour hit more than
30 cities in 2011, garnering acclaim at every turn; from the "fun and
irreverence" incited in Indianapolis, to the "hilarity, musicality, and
unabated joy" in St. Louis, and on to the "frantic energy" that filled
the house in Nashville.
These shows precede the Spinning Songbook dates in the Southeast US
later on in April, with more to be announced soon.
