Elvis Costello, one of the most respected and beloved songwriters of his generation, creates an unforgettable, unpredictable experience with The Revolver Tour, a spectacle that’s part rock show, part game show, and part free-for-all. Elvis has filled ear chimneys for decades with perfectly wrapped packages of pop sprinkled with acerbic wit, and on this tour the prolific artist will trade in his Etch-a-Sketch set lists for the Spectacular Spinning Songbook. Like Wheel of Fortune with a human host and actual prizes, selected fans get to be game-show contestants, taking the stage and spinning a giant wheel to determine which ditties Elvis and The Imposters will play. The wheel sports 40 song titles, including treasured hits such as “Allison” and “Watching the Detectives,” along with zany covers and wild-card themes. As their songs are performed, contestants get to dance in the Hostage to Fortune Go-Go Cage or imbibe at the on-stage Society Lounge. Changing hats, costumes, and personas like a carnival barker in the witness-protection program, Elvis Costello delivers a show that incapacitates the spirit of P.T. Barnum with jealousy.
Old National Centre
Old National Centre was originally built in 1909 as the Murat Shrine, which housed Indianapolis’s growing population of Freemasons. The building has since been restored and has become an eye-catching display of diverse architectural influences. Outside of the venue, spindly towers topped with light-blue domes rise above the street, beckoning passersby to enter the theater and enjoy a show. The classic, opulent Grand Lobby opens up to a wealth of concert venues, exhibition halls, and ballrooms that astound visitors with Middle Eastern and Victorian designs.
