Elbow announce UK arena tour and ticket details

Guy Garvey and co plot their comeback

Elbow have announced details of a UK arena tour next year in support of their as-yet-untitled new album.

The band, who are currently hard at work on the follow up to 2008 album ‘The Seldom Seen Kid’, play a number of dates including London‘s O2 Arena and Manchester‘s MEN Arena, next March.

Frontman Guy Garvey told NME that fans going to the gigs should expect some surprises from the band.
