Island Records is giving away a trip for two to see Elvis Costello in Europe this summer. Fans can enter the contest via Doll Revolution, a site named after the song “Tear Off Your Own Head (It’s a Doll Revolution),” the first single from Costello’s latest album, “When I Was Cruel.”
The grand prize winner and a guest will be flown to Europe and will enjoy deluxe accommodations and tickets to see Costello perform on a yet-to-be-determined date. A quintet of second prize winners will each win an electric guitar signed by the artist. Deadline for entry via the site is June 30.
Costello is in the midst of a North American tour, which tonight (May 21) touches down at the Historic Mountain Winery in Saratoga, Calif. He’ll be on the road stateside through a June 24 show in Atlanta, which will be followed by a six-date Japanese tour, and a quick visit to Australia.
So far, a July 22 gig in Liverpool, England, is Costello’s only confirmed European date. He’s expected back in the U.S. on Aug. 30 to perform a free concert as part of NBC’s “Today” concert series in New York’s Rockefeller Center.
