Following their sets at Reading and Leeds Festival this summer and their Mercury Prize nominated album Build A Rocket Boys! Elbow have teamed up with BBC Radio 2 for a one off homecoming gig at Manchester Cathedral. Pairing with BBC2 the show will be available to view online for the unlucky fans that don't get tickets. Scheduled for October 27th the band will bring along the Halle Youth Choir and they'll be playing as part of the BBC Radio 2's weekly In Concert programme. Ticket details will be announced on the 6th of October between 8-10pm via Radio 2.
Jeff Smith, the Head of Music at Radio 2 and 6 Music says: "I’m delighted to continue our homecoming series with Elbow. They are a magnificent live band and I can’t wait to hear how the cathedral setting lends itself to their stirring and anthemic music."
If you're a fan and in Manchester, this is a show not to be missed!
