Out for a spin

Rock concert revolves around audience participation

Tim Pyles

Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and early "New Waver" Elvis Costello (born Declan Patrick MacManus) is coming to town with his Spectacular Spinning Songbook tour — a live concert-meets-TV-game-show experience where select audience members spin a big wheel displaying 40 song titles. Wherever the wheels stops, that's the song the band will play.

This tour marks the wheel's first appearance since 1986. Back then, Elvis Costello & the Attractions took the stage. Today, it's Elvis Costello & The Imposters: Steve Nieve (keyboards), Pete Thomas (drums) and Davey Faragher (bass). That's pretty close to the original lineup, so call it what you will.

Expect to hear some of your favorites like "Pump It Up," "Veronica" and "Accidents Will Happen," when Costello, The Imposters and their giant wheel take the stage April 16 at Humphrey's by the Bay.
