Elbow will play a run of theatre shows in Manchester and London during February 2015.
The band from Bury will play Manchester o2 Apollo on 5, 6 and 7 February before heading to London’s Hammersmith Apollo for three concerts on 10, 11 and 12 February 2015.
The run of shows will be a chance for fans to see Elbow perform both their well-known and most-loved hits along with the band’s rarer and older songs.
Throughout the years, Elbow have received Mercury, BRIT and Novello awards, seen their albums turn platinum and enjoy success across continents.
Elbow first formed in the early 1990s but it wasn’t until 1997 that the band went by the name Elbow. The group comprises lead singer Guy Garvey, drummer Richard Jupp, guitarist Mark Potter, bassist Pete Turner and Craig Potter on keyboard and, unlike other bands who have enjoyed over 20 years in the industry, it’s a line-up that has stuck.
Elbow’s first release came in the form of Noisebox, their debut EP. It was a self-release that was the beginning of a hugely successful career for the band.
Their first studio album followed in 2001; Asleep In The Black landed Elbow their first Mercury nomination. Over the years Elbow released a further four albums: Cast Of Thousands (2003), Leaders Of The Free World (2005), The Seldom Seen Kid (2008) and Build A Rocket Boys! (2011).
In 2008, Elbow received the Mercury Music Price. The momentum continued as they received the BRIT Award for the Best British Group, two Ivor Novello Awards, NME Award for Outstanding Contribution to British Music and Mojo Magazine’s Song Of The Year award in the following year.
Fast forward to 2014 and the band have continued to grow in success. Elbow released The Take Off And Landing Of Everything in March 2014 and it became their first UK No.1 album. The collection was recorded at the band’s own studios in Manchester, Blueprint Studios, and Bath’s Real World Studios.
