Elvis Costello extends 'Spectacular Spinning Songbook' tour, coming to Durham

Elvis Costello and the Imposters have been showing off the songwriter's expansive catalog and his exuberant personality on the revived Spectacular Spinning Songbook Tour, which features a giant wheel on stage, spun by guests to determine some of the songs included in the set. The wheel is massive and the staging is elaborate (check out a video of someone spinning the wheel below to get the song "(I Don't Want To Go To) Chelsea)."

The tour has been extended and it's coming the Durham Performing Arts Center (DPAC) on Thursday, Septmber 22. Tickets go on sale to the public on Friday, July 15 at noon via Ticketmaster and the box office for $39.50 to $79.50.

[UPDATE: The start of the tour has been delayed until September 24 in Atlanta due to a serious illness of a close family member. The DPAC show is among the postponed dates. A rescheduled date is in the works and the venue is encouraging people to hang on to their tickets which will be good for the new date.]

Elvis Costello was last in the Triangle in 2009 at Koka Booth Amphitheater with his string band The Sugarcanes and also played the venue in 2007 performing with the North Carolina Symphony. Check out our review of the 2007 show HERE.
