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.
Doors: 7pm. Please note there is no support or intermission, Elvis Costello will be on stage at 8pm. The show will last approximately 2-3hrs.
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”.
Rolling Stone said the show combined, “the kitsch of a game show and lounge act:....when he wasn't singing or slamming at his guitars, Costello worked the stage like a burlesque-club emcee, cracking wise at a mile a minute and spinning a dandy's walking stick.”
