Elvis Costello announced he is extending his “Spinning Songbook” tour with a series of new West Coast dates. Costello has added shows in San Diego, San Francisco, Portland and Seattle.

The concept of Costello’s tour is a pretty cool one. On stage he has set up a musical wheel featuring songs both popular and rare from the playbook of Costello and The Imposters. Audience members are invited up on stage to spin the wheel and whatever song the wheel lands on, the band performs.
