Elvis Costello has announced an extensive UK tour for next summer.
The singer, who released his 24th studio album ‘National Ransom’ in 2010, will play 16 dates across the UK in May and June next year.
The tour will once again feature Costello and his band asking members of the audience to spin a huge wheel and select the next song in the set.
Costello‘s original wheel tour took place in 1986, opening at the Los Angeles Beverly Theatre, before a three-night residency at London’s Royal Albert Hall.
Costello donated the original Spinning Songbook wheel to the Hartlepool Museum Of Showbusiness Machinery but the new one has been reconstructed from the original blueprints.
