Lord Nelson and the Duke of Wellington will be tapping along in their graves, as Elbow prepare to play the crypt of St Paul’s Cathedral.
The happy-go-maudlin Mancs will rock-it from the crypt on 26 May. The performance will then be broadcast by organisers Absolute Radio on 5 June.
At first site an odd pairing, the soaring choruses of Elbow’s more emotive songs should fit right in to the sombre glory of the 17th Century undercroft. Tickets can’t be bought for love nor money, but will be allocated to winners of this competition.
