Manchester rock band announce hometown Phones 4u Arena show
Elbow return to their hometown Phones 4u Arena Manchester next spring to celebrate the release of their sixth studio album.
Tickets for the Wednesday 9 April concert go on sale Friday 04 October at 9.00am.
The band’s sixth studio album, currently being recorded at their facilities at Blueprint Studios, Salford, will be released in March 2014.
As with previous albums, the platinum build a rocket boys! and multi-platinum The Seldom Seen Kid, the production and mixing of the album is being undertaken by keyboardist Craig Potter.
Elbow’s first ever live DVD Live At Jodrell Bank consists of two CDs and a DVD covering the entire performance at the Cheshire Observatory and a documentary of the event by long standing collaborators The Soup Collective, featuring exclusive interviews with the band and backstage footage.
Formed in Bury in 1990, Elbow have released five studio albums, four EP’s and ten top fifty singles.
Four years ago the band won the Mercury Music Prize for The Seldom Seen Kid, followed by a 2009 Brit Award for Best British Group and NME Award for Outstanding Contribution To British Music.
