Elbow announce autumn UK arena tour

Band follow-up festival headline sets with a UK run in November and December

Elbow have announced details of a UK tour.

Following the band’s headline slots at Latitude and Electric Picnic festivals this year, they will embark on a run of arena dates in November and December.

Kicking off at Nottingham’s Capital FM Arena on November 26, the band will then head to Birmingham NIA on November 28 and then Liverpool’s Echo Area on November 29, before heading to their Manchester home-town on December 1. They will finish up at London’s The O2 on December 2.


Elbow will play:

Nottingham Capital FM Arena (November 26)
Birmingham NIA (28)
Liverpool Echo Arena (29)
Manchester MEN Arena (December 1)
London The O2 (2)

Earlier this month, Elbow announced that they will release a B-sides compilation titled ‘Dead In The Boot’ on August 27, featuring 13 B-sides and non-album tracks which have been selected by the band as favourites from their 15-year career.

In a statement on the band’s website, singer Guy Garvey said: “None of our B-sides are album rejects. It’s a different space, usually just post finishing an album when all the members of Elbow are chiming and feeling very creative. This gives ‘Dead In The Boot’ a real late night vibe.”

You can watch a new video interview with Elbow – in which they talk about the song they penned for the BBC’s Olympics coverage – at the bottom of the page.
