This weekend has been one of the best I’ve had in ages. We went to Leeds for the weekend and on Friday went to see Elbow perform at the First Direct Arena. They were simply amazing. I’ve managed to see most of my favourite bands over the years but I can honestly say I have never heard a band sound better live than on an album before, until now.
With a mixture of old favourites and songs from their new album ‘The Take Off and Landing of Everything’, Guy Garvey’s voice was pure perfection. The mix of string and brass also added to the atmosphere and the interaction with the crowd made it feel so personal in such a big arena – Guy even took a fan’s phone to video himself singing.

And as we expected, they ended the night with One Day Like This – which holds a very special place in my heart! If you haven’t already got their new album, go do it now, and have a listen to two of my favourites Real Life (Angel) and New York Morning.
