Press Release:

Elbow will make their much anticipated debut visit to New Zealand to perform at Auckland’s Powerstation on Wednesday, March 28.

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

Elbow delivered four mesmerising Australian performances last July, including sold out shows in Melbourne and Sydney and a remarkable set at the Splendour in the Grass festival, so expectations are high for their first ever New Zealand show.

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’.
