Elvis Costello at The Orpheum 2012by
Elvis Costello & The Impostors play the Orpheum in Vancouver April 10, 2012 at the Canadian debut of their Spinning Songbook Tour.
At each performance, select fans are invited on stage to spin the songbook wheel, creating a different set at each show. The gameshow-style songbook wheel contains over 40 hits, rarities, and a few surprise selections.
For a warm-up, you can visit Elvis Costello’s website to spin a digital songbook and hear pieces from his collection.
From Vancouver, the tour will head to Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, San Diego, LA, then over to Florida and North Carolina. Tickets are currently on sale through Live Nation for $34.50, $59.50, $79.50, and $99.00 (plus fees).
I also have a pair of tickets to give away to a reader. Here’s how you can enter to win:

Would love to see this!
Have loved Elvis since I first heard Radio, Radio, and have never seen him in concert. Pick me! Pick me!
Love to see Elvis in Vancouver! Maybe his beautiful wife will show up too? 🙂
Sounds like fun!
When I went to see Levon Helm my girlfriend saw a guy and said “he must be really rich, look at his shoes,” and that guy was Elvis Costello. Clearly she needs to be educated about Elvis so I need these tickets!
He’s the real Elvis!
Would love to win these tickets
Would love to take my Mom for her birthday!
This would be a cool prize to win!

My husband and I would love to see this show!

I have been a huge fan of Costello since Imperial Bedroom!
I would love take my mom to this concert – she is a big big fan of Elvis Costello!
This would be a great concert – he’s an amazing performer!
This would be fun!
“Olivers Army” is a song that takes me back to my childhood every time I hear it. His early stuff in particular is wonderful.
What a fun event 🙂
I remember first seeing him on Saturday Night Live and thinking how strange he was. Little was I to know that that would be the beginning of being a huge fan to this very day.
I don’t want to go to Chelsea
I do want to go to the Orpheum
Thanks for the opportunity to win
My wife and I are big Fans, love to support awesome talent, especially those lucky enough to live in 604.

>3 Elvis! would love to see him live 🙂
The North album got me through a rough patch in my twenties. I’d love to see him live! 🙂
I believe there is good everywhere you look, even in the darkest times you can find it. My lovely sister has just left her 25 year marriage, as she’s finding out one of her parents has been diagnosed with Alzheimers. She is not complaining, or feeling sorry for herself, no not at all, she is appreciative of the people in her life, and let’s us know how much we mean to her. Her heart is open and giving, and is full of love and kindness, not at all what you would expect from someone grieving such loss, and heartache. I am also going through my own darkest moments, yet I can see the good all around me, how lucky am I? I just wanted to pay it forward, and share the hope and pass on kindness, and whoever wins the tickets, enjoy fully, and keep passing on kindness, and joy! Good luck.
That will be one great concert.
This will be a great show!
Saw him up close and personal in Whistler a few years back. Would love an opportunity to do so again!

Armed Forces still holds up to the test of time
Would love to hear anything from that live in concert
He is most coolio – I need to go see him
Elvis has brought us such interesting, quirky, moving music, from poignant love songs like My Funny Valentine and Alison, to alt-punk Pump it Up, and even a foray into country and western. Long may he continue doing that thing he does!
Would love to see this.
I would absolutely love to go to this!!!
I love Elvis and Diane. Keep my fingers crossed!
He’s an amazing guitar picking guy who I loved to watch play
