Spin the wheel and gamble on a Costello spectacular

Elvis Costello reinvents the wheel and lets fans control the setlist for his newly announced Revolver spring tour – dates in Bournemouth and Bristol are his closest to the Westcountry and tickets go sale today.

An overture of five uninterrupted rock and roll tunes will announce Elvis and the Imposters to the stage, after which members of the audience will be invited to spin a gigantic vaudevillian contraption to select the next song. It could land on Oliver's Army, Everyday I Write The Book or Watching The Detectives, Shipbuilding, God Give Me Strength or a jackpot selection such as Time or Girl, demanding a sequence of songs containing these words.

The British singer songwriter's original wheel tour took place in 1986, opening at the Beverly Theatre, Los Angeles with Tom Waits as a guest MC and visiting New York, Paris, Stockholm and Rome, before playing for three nights at the Royal Albert Hall.
