Intimate Hometown Performance On Vinyl LP!

Having rescheduled their March and April tour dates due to the ongoing Covid-19 emergency, elbow have brought forward the release of 'Live at The Ritz - An Acoustic Performance'.

"Given we should be seeing 100,000 of you fans on this tour we thought we'd bring forward the release of the record we made at the end of last year... We hope it goes someway to fixing your disappointment at not being able to seeing us for the moment." - Guy Garvey

In October 2019, their eighth studio album, Giants Of All Sizes, became their third consecutive UK Number One album. That week, elbow played a series of special acoustic shows for select audiences in Leeds, Kingston and Manchester. Combining tracks from the new album with songs from their extensive and ever growing back catalogue, the shows offered fans a rare opportunity to see elbow in small venues, with the recordings emphasizing the special bond that exists between the band and their fanbase.

The short tour included two sold out, hometown shows at Manchester's Ritz, a place that looms large in the band's history, being the site of a legendary headline show on the release of their debut album Asleep In The Back in 2001 that had the Manchester Evening News display their fortune telling skills when they suggested "elbow are on the verge of something big".

The Ritz set reminded fans of that history with versions of both "Newborn" and "Scattered Black And Whites" from that debut album alongside versions of "Grounds For Divorce" from The Seldom Seen Kid, "Magnificent (She Says)" from Little Fictions and "Great Expectations" from Leaders Of The Free World. As befits an album from a band so intrinsically intertwined with their hometown, the show also saw Guy Garvey quote John Cooper Clarke and pay tribute to various Manchester luminaries lost along the way.
