ELBOW ANNOUNCE FIRST EVER NEW ZEALAND SHOW

Elbow will make their much anticipated debut visit toNew Zealandto perform atAuckland’s

Powerstation on Wednesday, March 28

Tickets will go on sale at 9am Friday, February 10.

Elbow delivered four mesmerising Australian performances last July, including sold out shows in

MelbourneandSydneyand a remarkable set at the Splendour in the Grass festival, so expectations

are high for their first ever NewZealandshow.

Elbow consistently deliver impeccable, brilliant live shows.

“Elbow are as close to a perfect live band any punter could hope for…” Fasterlouder

The band’s graceful, lush orchestral sounds – a gently sublime mix of the intricately elegant,

poignant, and elative, rousing crescendos – serve up stunning renditions from their five‐album

repertoire. Up front, Guy Garvey fills the room with his angelic vocals, undeniable stage presence

and natural charisma; his generous between‐song banter building a strong rapport between band

and audience.

“‘Open Arms’ was triumphant, ‘Station Approach’ possessed an almost hypnotic jubilation and set

closing ‘One Day Like This’ was positively euphoric.” ‐ Drum Media

“We think we may have gone to musical heaven…” Inpress

2011 marked Elbow’s 20‐year anniversary and the release of their fifth studio album, Build A Rocket

Boys.

Build A Rocket Boys follows debut album Asleep in the Back, Cast of Thousands, Leaders of the Free

World and their fourth album, the 2008 Mercury Music Prize winning The Seldom Seen Kid.
