Local favourites elbow have announced a run of Manchester and London theatre shows, which will see them performing at Manchester’s O2 Apollo on 5th, 6th and 7th February 2015.

The shows follow the incredible success of their recent Phones 4u Arena shows“We enjoyed our theatre tour of the States and Canada this summer so much that we decided to do some at home.” commented lead singer Guy Garvey.  “There is something magic about the history of old theatres and doing residencies in these lovely buildings means we can be playful with the staging.  Also the band often discuss how great it would be to play older and rarer songs of ours alongside the ones we are best known for.  We are also hoping for a range of excellent guests and are really excited about these shows”.

The best is expected to perform tracks from their extensive back catalogue of six studio albums and a B-sides collection which they launched with their Noisebox EP in 1998.

5th February        –              Manchester, O2 Apollo
