Elbow's Big Tour

Elbow have promised "big extravaganzas" with their next tour.

The 'Grounds for Divorce' hitmakers are preparing to embark on a hiatus following their homecoming show in Manchester tonight (18.09.09) but frontman Guy Garvey has pledged they will return bigger and better than ever.

He said: "It's at the forefront of Elbow's collective brain that - because we're an album band and they're a dwindling species - we almost have an obligation to make sure that the shows that accompany the next record are big extravaganzas.

"Playing with the Halle during Manchester International Festival was inspiring - not that we'd take an orchestra on tour. Imagine the amount of honey-roast nuts you'd need on the rider. But I am looking forward to drawing on our prog roots next time round."

The group have experienced massive success with their last album, 'The Seldom-Seen Kid' and Guy admits their newfound success has taken a while to get used to.

He added to LiverpoolConfidential.com: "It's a strange feeling to have anything firm in music," he says. "We won ten major awards for 'The Seldom-Seen Kid'. Our record company won marketing and A and R awards, and Craig Potter won two producer awards. It's as though every facet of the record has been celebrated. The best feeling now is that, whatever happens next, nobody can ever take that away."
