A staple on the UK Top 20 with each of their previous five albums, this band from Ramsbottom earned critical acclaim for their fourth album, The Seldom Seen Kid, and completed a tour supporting Build a Rocket Boys! earlier in 2012. Elbow's mix of traditional and progressive rock, including heavy influences from Peter Gabriel-era Genesis as well as Radiohead, keeps fans hungry for a sound that continues to involve. 2011's Build a Rocket Boys! hit #2 on the UK charts - their highest-ever rank, and Elbow 2012 ticket prices are sure to see a boost given the relatively small number of dates and rising stardom.
