Enjoyed last night, as Errant says, all the new songs worked well. Even Pete cocking up the intro to Fly Boy didn't spoil what was the stand out tune for me. The set relies too heavily on the previous two albums IMHO, but you can see how many people are only there for the big arm waving anthems.
Anyway, forget getting a setlist at the end of a gig, I got something MUCH better


i have to ask... how on earth did you manage to get the food menu?!  Laughing

having seen how little mark has to do at times during the show, its confirmed to me that the tunes i like best from elbow are where he opens up and gives it some welly...

Well, certainly during the live performances 'a bit of welly' imho is great to keep the place "going" if you like.
I agree that it can lose some momentum when they do the slower songs in a bunch together.
 

i suspect the arena stage will allow them to mix that section of the gig up a bit better - expect them at the end of the runway around a piano toasting the crowd etc... should flow a bit better i suspect.

for me they should prune two of the more slower songs, or swap one for scattered b&w... i'd loose either one or two from tower crane, the night or mirrorball - but that's just me...

Was a very good gig for me. Particularly enjoyed The Birds seemed to have more omph than i remember. Even the slower stuff sounded better than i remember (probably cause the crowd didnt seem as talkative as i thought they would be in those songs).

i can't be certain with regards the birds, but the added brass section enhanced a few of the songs in a way i didn't expect (a good way ofcourse!). its seems to give it a extra sonic dimension without taking anything away from what the others on stage are doing... to use a previous line from myself, its gives it extra welly... :-)

I totaly agree the added brass did enhance some of there songs in way which them sound better than before. Give it some welly is a good way of describing it.

Oh that's great... There are no tourdates around my place yet, but reading all that stuff makes me happy and really looking forward (besides the fact that I hate April fools which makes today a bit *aaaargh*).

Do we have "less" dedicated fans' around here? Made me laugh, but I know what you are talking about. As much as I wish stardome to our Elboys over here (starting with promo on telly *wooohoooo*) somehow for ME ;)it's better if they stay less famous and play in little venues. Smile

Thanks for all the Storys. Keep them coming the next weeks! Very Happy

Thoroughly enjoyed the gig last night, new stuff is sounding brilliant live. Missing the lack of early stuff but that's a well discussed issue so I won't delve into it here - all I'll say is that I really did enjoy it and it's got me well and truly excited for Birmingham and London Smile

My mate's shop, Reflex sell tickets for most Academy gigs (sadly not for last nights, as I mentioned earlier in this thread).
As he has contacts there, he texted them to find out what time Elbow were going to be onstage. Just out of general interest they sent him the day's menu by fax (I think) and he brought it out to the gig, cos he knew I'd be interested  Smile

Queen Ali, you are the bomb dot com! Thanks for posting those videos, I was so excited to see how they sound on the new stuff. Love it so far, and am really looking forward to experiencing it in person.
