The ‘Spectacular Spinning Songbook’ was first seen in 1986 as part of
the ‘Costello Sings Again’ tour and returned to the UK last spring. An
overture of five songs announce Elvis Costello & the Imposters to the
stage, after which members of the audience are invited to spin the
gigantic vaudevillian contraption and select the next song.

The Imposters are keyboardist Steve Nieve, drummer Pete Thomas and
bassist Davey Faragher.
