Setlist: Elvis Costello, O2 Dublin, 9 May 2012

Elvis Costello was in Dublin last night to play the O2 as part of his Revolver Tour. Costello’s show was impressive if just for the fact that his setlist was a lottery, thanks to the Spectacular Spinning Songbook – where audience members did their best Winning Streak impression to select a song from the spinning wheel.

    Great concert. Elvis’ voice is as good as ever. He burst on stage at 8.15 and played until 11pm. He belted out songs with passion and energy , and sang SHE with such feeling. Great fun night too with members of the audience dancing on stage after spinning the song wheel. An night to remember. If you read this Elvis—- Thank you!!! Tricia
