Elbow for giant Manchester homecoming gig

'It'll be the biggest show we've done' says Guy Garvey

Elbow are set to play a show at the Manchester MEN Arena on September 18 and then, according to frontman Guy Garvey, “disappear” from the live scene until they finish their next album.

The band are billing the event as a special homecoming show that has extra poignancy as the venue is located within a mile of Blueprint Studios, where they recorded their hugely successful latest album ‘The Seldom Seen Kid’.

“It’ll be the biggest show we’ve done,” Garvey told NME.COM. “Then we’ll disappear for a couple of years to work on a new record.”

See the new issue of NME, out tomorrow (April 29), for the full interview with the Elbow man.

Tickets for the show go on sale on Friday (May 1).
