    The Revolver Tour: Elvis Costello & the Imposters

    The Bowery Presents Elvis Costello and the Imposters - "The Revolver Tour" at Citi Performing Arts Center Wang Theatre on Friday, May 20th.

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

      All of those 25 years ago, I was fortunate enough to see Mr. McManus perform his set according to the wheel. I recall having a great time, as I was, and still am, an avid fan. Flash forward to 2011,... Expand
