Just picked up our local rag, the Manchester Evening News - again with the Halle and courtesy of Radio 2, compere Jo Whiley, proceeds to go towards musical scholarships attending Chethams school of music, next door. Live on R2 and digital TV.

The gig is free and more details coming soon and I imagine, on Radio 2. I've seen Beach House there and due to see Anna Calvi there - a stunning venue.

Well spotted, MBV! Mind you, getting hold of a ticket will be very difficult, I would imagine. I don't know what the capacity of the cathedral is, but I would guess it would be in the hundreds rather than the thousands.

MEN Article HERE

For anyone who can't go, or if you miss out on a ticket, it does say it will be broadcast live on BBC Radio 2 and on digital television cheers

Cheers Dave - the link from the MEN wasn't on when I looked earlier.........aint holding my breath about getting a ticket, will have a go though, if the setlist has been rejigged then I'd be gutted if I'm unsuccessful.

Yeah, it's hard to gauge how many it holds, but your right, maybe around a 1,000, but not much more........

As far as I can see we have to wait until 6th Oct at 8pm on Radio2 for a chance to be there! What are the chances ehh!

At least we are guaranteed to see the gig live on TV. Must remember to keep back some of my Elbow beer for it! Beer

I reckon you're right mate - at the St Paul's Cathedral Crypt gig, think literally ONE, maybe TWO from these boards went, and a lot, myself included, entered the 'draw' for it.

Bloody 15 minutes on a tram from where I live aswell. Sad

Well... if worst case scenario is you don't get a ticket, why not hang about outside on the night to try & hear some of it?
If it's only down the road, I'd be tempted to do that.

Throw those cathedral doors wide...

Actually, I remember someone saying that a number of people didn't bother turning up for the Abbey Road (SSK w BBC Orchestra) recording and that some people were squeezed in at the last minute.
I tell ya - if it was just down the road for me, I would sooo be hanging around outside! You never know!!! Twisted Evil

Bit of a bugger this one. I'm coming down to leeds the next day for The Mission at the O2 Academy (teenage goth.....), and have already booked my train tickets. If I knew about this one, I would have booked a day earlier. Will just have to content myself with the thought of Madrid in november. Insert grumpy smiley here.....

It's not Tony Bennett that bothers me. It's having to listen to 2 hours of Joke Whiley telling us that she discovered elbow and if it wasn't for her they wouldn't be where they are today.

I quite like her Young Cestrian, had a soft spot for her since I won tickets on her radio show, to see Embrace at Abbey Road in the 90's......now if it was Fearne Cotton...... No

Nice one Girl Afraid, cheers for posting the link.

"Please note that the allocation process for tickets is geographically weighted as follows: 75% for Greater Manchester postcodes and 25% for the rest of the UK." : You might yet be in with a chance then, MBV! Smile

I think it's great that they've weighted the ticket allocation so that 75% of tickets go to people with a Manchester post code. This should mean that genuine fans stand a chance of making the show.

Sadly I don't have a Manchester post code so it limits my chance even more. :-(

Good luck all.

Just wondering where it says anything about the percentage of tickets going where ?

I've registered but it only sought my name, email addy and date of birth. Being outside the UK, I wonder if I'm not entitled to be in the draw Sad
