Elvis Costello and the Imposters -- including Steve Nieve, Pete Thomas and Davey Faragher -- have announced an extension of their Spinning Songbook tour.
The tour, which started off as a two-week stint back in the spring, soon expanded to include 17 additional cities in June and July. The just-added dates are in September and October and find the band sticking to the East coast.
At each performance, select fans are invited onstage to spin a song wheel, which features the names of 40 hits, rarities and surprises. The band plays the songs the needle lands on, which leads to a new set list at each show.
