Elbow frontman Guy Garvey has described the band’s upcoming UK tour, which begins in Nottingham on November 26th, as a ‘farewell party’ as he prepares to jet off to New York to work on the new stage musical adaptation of King Kong.
“We’ve got our arena tour this November and December, which will be like a farewell party,” Garvey is quoted as saying in The Sun. “We’ve already done six songs for the next album, then we’ll come back to finish it next year.”
“As soon as the tour ends I’m off to New York for six months. Where better to write songs for a King Kong musical than the place it’s set?”
Gigs at the Wembley Arena, Birmingham National Indoor Arena, Liverpool Echo Arena and Manchester Arena are booked for Elbow before they return to London for a final date at the 02 on December 2nd to wrap up the long promotional duties for their 2011 LP ‘Build a Rocket Boys!‘.Just Published:
