ELVIS COSTELLO & THE IMPOSTERS - 2013 Australian Tour

 

ELVIS COSTELLO & THE IMPOSTERS - 2013 AUSTRALIAN TOUR

Special guests Sunnyboys join five-band bill for Winery shows.

The Spectacular Spinning Songbook for theatres.

Australia continues its lengthy love affair with Elvis Costello when the acclaimed singer-songwriter returns in January 2013 for a national tour.

In keeping with the exuberant musicality that has defined his three decade plus career, Costello has some tasty treats in store for both a day on the green shows (a reprise from his 2004 a day on the green tour) and two special theatre performances in Melbourne and Sydney.

For the winery concerts, the unabashed showman backed by the trusty Imposters - keyboardist Steve Nieve, drummer Pete Thomas and bassist Davey Faragher - will take audiences through the Costello musical encyclopaedia refresher course with a selection of classic hits.

His outstanding musical pedigree has inspired promoters to assemble one of the finest damn line-ups in a day on the green history. 

Check this out! In a massive coup, the truly legendary original line-up of Sunnyboys will return to the stage for their first national tour in more than 20 years!

Joe Camilleri will re-assemble the mighty Jo Jo Zep & the Falcons, the enigmatic Tex Perkins takes the saddle again with the Dark Horses while Sports ex-frontman, Stephen Cummings will make a rare concert appearance.

Elvis Costello & The Imposters, Sunnyboys, Jo Jo Zep & The Falcons, Tex Perkins & The Dark Horses and Stephen Cummings ....... salivate indeed, for this eclectic bill promises to be one of the musical highlights of the summer.

Mr Costello has another delight in store for fans at the two theatre performances. For the past year or so, he has been travelling around the world with a gigantic vaudevillian game-show Wheel as the centrepiece of a show called 'The Spectacular Spinning Songbook". At each concert fans are invited on stage to spin the Wheel, thereby creating the night's set list from 40 selections including hits, rarities and a few surprises. The stage set also includes a go-go cage and "Society Lounge".

First seen in 1986 and beloved by Elvis fans around the globe, the Wheel makes its first appearance in Australia on this tour, following unanimous acclaim at every turn - 'hilarity, musicality and unabated joy'; 'funny, boisterous, big-hearted musical-hall variety show', 'breathtakingly personal' and 'it's hard to imagine any other musician in the world playing the show that Elvis Costello did'.

Due to production and stage requirements, 'The Spectacular Spinning Songbook' can make only two very special appearances at Melbourne's Palais Theatre and Sydney's State Theatre.

Due to the set size, the support artist at these shows will be a Joe Camilleri duo.

We heartily recommend you sample Costello's most recent recorded offering "The Return Of The Spectacular Spinning Songbook" (CD and DVD), filmed at the Los Angeles shows.

Elvis Costello and the Imposters, the long-awaited return of Sunnyboys and Jo Jo Zep and the Falcons in a not-to-be-missed five hours of musical splendour a day on the green AND the Australian premiere of "The Spectacular Spinning Songbook" at the theatre shows!
