Elbow have announced plans for a one-off homecoming show next month.

The band are set to be backed by the Halle Youth Choir for the show, which is being organised by Radio 2 as part of their In Concert series, at Manchester Cathedral on October 27.

The choir performed on tracks from their recent album, 'Build A Rocket Boys!'. Proceeds from the concert at the 15th century church will go towards supporting scholarships for youngsters to attend neighbouring Chetham's School For Music.

Frontman Guy Garvey recently explained that the band are still at a very early stage in the process, but are trying out a new technique to come up with new material for their next album.

The singer said:

[Drummer] Rich [Jupp] went into the studio and recorded several different drum patterns for me. We've never worked this way before, but we'll see what happens.


For more information about the gig, head to Radio 2.
