Elbow consistently deliver impeccable, brilliant live shows.
“Elbow are as close to a perfect live band any punter could hope for…” — Fasterlouder
The band’s graceful, lush orchestral sounds — a gently sublime mix of the intricately elegant, poignant, and elative, rousing crescendos — serve up stunning renditions from their five-album repertoire. Up front, Guy Garvey fills the room with his angelic vocals, undeniable stage presence and natural charisma; his generous between-song banter building a strong rapport between band and audience.
“‘Open Arms’ was triumphant, ‘Station Approach’ possessed an almost hypnotic jubilation and set closing ‘One Day Like This’ was positively euphoric.” — Drum Media
“We think we may have gone to musical heaven…” — Inpress
2011 marked Elbow’s 20-year anniversary and the release of their fifth studio album, Build A Rocket Boys.
Build A Rocket Boys follows debut album Asleep in the Back, Cast of Thousands, Leaders of the Free World and their fourth album, the 2008 Mercury Music Prize winning The Seldom Seen Kid.
