Manchester band Elbow have been confirmed for the 2014 Eden Sessions, one of just a handful of UK shows they will play this summer.

 

The five-piece will be playing at the Eden Project on Monday July 14 and tickets will initially be available only to residents of Cornwall and Devon.

 

Elbow join Ellie Goulding (July 8 – sold out) and Dizzee Rascal (June 21) on the bill for the 2014 Eden Sessions with ASUS Transformer Book. More acts will be announced soon.

 

The show will follow the recent release of their hotly-anticipated sixth studio album The Take Off and Landing of Everything, which this week became their first ever UK number one album.

 

Their latest album follows 2011’s platinum-selling Build a Rocket Boys! and 2008’s triple-platinum Mercury Music Prize-winning The Seldom Seen Kid.

 

Following the use of their One Day Like This track during the Beijing Olympics in 2008, the BBC commissioned Elbow to compose the theme for their coverage of 2012’s London games. First Steps was recorded with the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra. The band also performed at the closing ceremony of the London Olympics.

 

Elbow return to the Sessions after making their Eden debut in 2003.


Rita Broe, Eden’s Marketing Director, said: “Eden is immensely proud to welcome national treasures Elbow back to Cornwall. This is a real coup and will be an absolutely unmissable event.

 

“With their hugely anticipated new album just released this is sure to be a legendary Eden Session. Catch them now before they go seriously stratospheric.”

 

Elbow have requested that fans in Cornwall and Devon get the first opportunity to purchase tickets before they go on sale to the rest of the country on April 22.

This means that everyone who wants tickets from March 25 to April 21 must have a payment card billing address in either Cornwall or Devon.
