Elbow will make a much anticipated and welcome return to Australia for four special shows. Fellow Brits and special guests, Bombay Bicycle Club, join Elbow on tour in what will be their first Australian shows. Tickets go on sale at 9am Tuesday December 6.
Elbow’s return visit follows quickly after four mesmerising performances last July, including sold out shows in Melbourne and Sydney and a remarkable set at the Splendour in the Grass festival.
Our Tone Deaf reviewer went along to the show in Melbourne and said “Elbow clearly deserve their reputation as a unique and powerful live band, and yet remain surprisingly grounded and humble. They act and feel like a group of mates from Manchester, who are out playing beautiful music and enjoying doing it, and from the perspective of the audience this can only be a positive thing”
North London’s Bombay Bicycle Club, opening for Elbow on all shows, have released three albums in as many years. Winning a competition to perform at V Festival while still at school, the youthful band released their gold, debut album, ‘I Had The Blues But I Shook Them Loose’, in 2009. Wasting no time, a stripped-‐down, acoustic, second album ‘Flaws’, was released a year later making the UK top 10.
