Elbow set for the South Bank Show treatment

Documentary about the Bury band to air next month

Elbow are to be the subject of a South Bank Show, focusing on the band’s career.

On the show Guy Garvey and co will look back over the 18 years it has taken the group to achieve massive mainstream success, which they did with their most recent album, the Barclaycard Mercury Prize-winning ‘The Seldom Seen Kid’.

The episode will include never-before-seen archive home video footage of Elbow as teenagers, as well as exclusive live footage from last month’s Manchester MEN Arena show.

The show will be broadcast on November 15.

Meanwhile, Elbow will be re-releasing a deluxe edition of their debut album ‘Asleep In The Back’ later this month.
