UK ARENA TOUR ANNOUNCED MARCH 2018
TICKETS ON SALE FRIDAY 8TH SEP AT 9AM
Recognised as one of the UK’s biggest and most important bands, elbow have a well-deserved reputation for delivering arena shows that combine scale with intimacy to devastating effect. The dates extend the ‘Little Fictions’ tour following a run of sold out theatre shows in March 2017 which included residencies in Manchester, London and Edinburgh, high profile festival appearances across Europe throughout the summer and a series of Forest shows, one of which was described as ‘the performance of a lifetime in a venue just as beautiful as their music’ by Contact Music. The band are about to embark on a full US tour and their first show in Mexico at the Corona Festival in November. Previous elbow arena shows have been acclaimed by reviewers, with The Guardian noting how ‘Guy Garvey radically shrinks the venue with his warmth’ and The Evening Standard declaring them ‘pop magicians, capable of sounding intimate and gigantic’.
elbow have also made available a new track,‘Kindling (Fickle Flame)’ - this special re-recorded version of the album track, sees the song transformed into a duet between Guy Garvey and John Grant.
John Grant and his band will also be the very special guest on the upcoming tour!
