Tour Of The Week: Elbow

elbow_js_040914

Elbow have announced a run of shows in Manchester and London for February 2015. Elbow Tickets are on sale now, priced at £35.00 and £36.00, plus fees.

The indie giants will play four nights at Manchester’s O2 Apollo, before heading to the capital for three nights at Hammersmith’s Eventim Apollo, between February 5 and 12.

Guy Garvey said:

“We enjoyed our theatre tour of the States and Canada this summer so much that we decided to do some at home. There is something magic about the history of old theatres and doing residencies in these lovely buildings means we can be playful with the staging.

“Also the band often discuss how great it would be to play older and rarer songs of ours alongside the ones we are best known for. We are also hoping for a range of excellent guests and are really excited about these shows.”

Elbow released their current album, ‘The Take Off And Landing Of Everything’, back in March.

Elbow Upcoming Tour Dates are as follows:

Thu February 05 2015 – MANCHESTER O2 Apollo
Fri February 06 2015 – MANCHESTER O2 Apollo
Sat February 07 2015 – MANCHESTER O2 Apollo
