Elbow to Take Time Out -
Elbow frontman Guy Garvey has revealed
that the band's upcoming tour will be the last we hear from the
Manchester new-prog outfit for some time.
Garvey was speaking with
The Sun when he announced that the band plan to head off to do
'other things' after their November and December tour, which he
added will be treated as a 'farewell party.'
"We've got our arena tour this November and December, which
will be like a farewell party. We've already done six songs for the
next album, then we'll come back to finish it next year."
The frontman is planning to break from Elbow
for most of 2013 to concentrate on writing music for a new stage
adaptation of King Kong, after he was asked to join the writing
team by Massive Attack's Robert Del
"As soon as the tour ends I'm off to New York for six
months," he confirmed. "Where better to write songs for a
King Kong musical than the place it's set?"
Elbow will play:
Nottingham Capital FM Arena (November 26)
London Wembley Arena (27)
Birmingham National Indoor Arena (28)
Liverpool Echo Arena (29)
Manchester Arena (December 1)
London O2 Arena (2)
