BOMBAY BICYCLE CLUB: EXTRA SYDNEY SHOW
What an amazing year we had in 2011! We bring our 2011 "Best Of" retrospective coverage to an end with a look back now at our 11 favourite tours from the year, featuring the international artists we hope will keep coming back to Australia for more...
Elbow will make a much anticipated and welcome return to Australia for four special shows.
Fellow Brits and special guests Bombay Bicycle Club join Elbow on tour in what will be their first Australian shows. Tickets go on sale 9am Tuesday December 6.
In my final day of Splendour in the Grass for 2011, it was the main stage calling: with one of my favourite bands playing (Pulp), I was determined to get a spot early in the day. And so I did! But unfortunately this meant I was going to miss bands like Young The Giant, The Herd and Noah and the Whale - but that’s in the name of it isn’t it? Thankfully the main stage featured incredible musicians from start to finish.
Matt Corby was the local support act tonight, tasked with opening the show at Melbourne’s Palace Theatre. Although the mostly 30 plus crowd, a strong contingent of whom seemed to be from Britain, largely didn’t know who the 20 year old singer was, there were murmurs of approval to be heard amongst the throng of the sold out venue.
Having spent the first four months of 2011 playing headline shows in the UK and US, including multiple SOLD OUT shows in London and three shows at Austin’s SXSW festival, followed by two months of magical Secret Garden shows around NSW and Victoria, Matt Corby is delighted to be confirmed as the main support for the upcoming SOLD OUT Elbow shows in Sydney and Melbourne.
Guy Garvey will lead the Mancurian five piece in three headline shows this July- in Perth, Melbourne and Sydney - ahead of their appearance at Splendour In The Grass
Tickets for the headline shows go on sale Friday May 27
This year Elbow have delivered another collection of lush, orchestral and typically graceful sounds, complimented by Garvey's gravelly, emotive vocals- 'Build A Rocket Boys!'.
