Elvis Costello is proud to announce the return of the “Spectacular Spinning Songbook” to Los Angeles on the heels of two 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 wheel.

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.
