Straight out of Bury and going for two decades, Elbow only get more popular and loved with time. They won the Mercury Prize in 2008 with The Seldom Seen Kid, an album that went on to achieve platinum status. In 2011 they released a new album, Build A Rocket Boys!, which has been met with critical success. Expect a stirring performance from the band that describes themselves as ‘prog without the solos’.
