On Tuesday May 15, Elvis Costello brings the Spectacular Spinning Songbook to Symphony Hall and today the venue have released extra seats. An overture of five uninterrupted rock and roll tunes announces Elvis Costello and the Imposters to the stage, after which members of the audience are invited to spin the gigantic vaudevillian contraption and select the next song. Fortune may deliver such hits such as ‘Oliver’s Army’, ‘Everyday I Write The Book’ and ‘Watching The Detectives’ or land on a Jackpot selection such as ‘Time and Girl’, demanding a sequence of songs, each containing these words. Such career highlights as ‘Shipbuilding’ or ‘God Give Me Strength’ can spin into view alongside hidden gems from the Costello songbook like, ‘Town Cryer’ or tunes by The Rolling Stones, Johnny Cash and, of course, Bob Dylan’s ‘This Wheel’s On Fire’. Tickets for this incredibly unique show are priced at £36.50/£42.50 and are available now from the Symphony Hall website here.
