Elbow’s sixth album The Take Off and Landing of Everything is their first UK number one. In April the band set out on a UK arena tour to support the new album, prior to shows in America, Russia and Europe. Key suppliers for the UK tour included All Access Staging, Lite Alternative, NEWSUBSTANCE, XL Video, Skan PA and Popcorn Catering. Simon Duff reports from London’s 02 Arena on how Elbow have made it to the top.
Elbow started rehearsals for the tour at their Blueprint Studio, Manchester, in mid January with a FOH and Monitor control package from SKAN PA, then went into two days rehearsals at Sheffield Arena prior to the start of the tour. For Mick Brown, Production Manager, whose other clients include The Flaming Lips, Radiohead and Atoms for Peace, it was his second arena tour with the band.
