Elvis Costello and the Imposters have announced “The Revolver Tour” during the merry month of May.

For the first time in 25 years, Costello will let his set-list be chosen by “The Spectacular Spinning Songbook”, a monumental game-show wheel that features 40 song-titles, including hits, rarities and very unexpected covers.

Audience members will be invited onstage where they may spin “The Wheel” and then be offered a chance to enter the “Hostage to Fortune Go-Go Cage”, while their selection is performed.

Alternatively, they may choose to take a seat in the on-stage “Society Lounge”, where light refreshments will be served, during what promises to be a splendid and surprising evening.

The original Wheel was famously donated to the Hartlepool Museum Of Showbusiness Machinery but it has been meticulously reconstructed from the original blueprints.

“The Revolver Tour” includes stops at The Wiltern in Los Angeles May 11, and two nights at New York’s Beacon Theatre May 22 & 23.
See below for a complete list of dates.

The Imposters are: Steve Nieve (keyboards); Pete Thomas (drums) and Davey Faragher (bass).
