Good news to perk me up this slightly hungover Monday morning. Leeds First Direct Arena, have just announced that the mighty ELBOW will be coming to the city next April! Nice!
The band have been teasing the announcement of their sixth album recently, as they crack on putting it together at ther facilities in Blueprint Studios, Salford, but today that have revealed the release date – March 10, 2014 – and details of their first live DVD release, Live From Jodrell Bank. You can pre-order the album/DVD bundle HERE.
I really wanted to go to the Jodrell Bank show last year – it looks like an amazing spot to put on a concert – but I was away on my hols. It’s probably worth keeping your eyes out for details of next summer’s shows and head over.
The band were one of my Leeds Festival 2012 highlights – we braved the mud at the Main Stage to get pretty close to the front and loved every minute of their hugely triumphant set.
We’ll definitely be in attendance to hear new tunes – the show will be just over a month after the album’s release, so we’ll be able to sing along!
>> ELBOW will be playing at Leeds Arena on Friday, April 11, 2014. Tickets (£30 + fees) go on sale Friday, October 4, thought here are fan pre-sales happening now.
