Elbow have announced a run of theatre shows at London's Hammersmith Eventim Apollo and Manchester's O2 Apollo for February next year.

The shows will see the band return to a more intimate setting and will see the band revisit rarer tracks from their extensive back catalogue comprising six studio albums.

Lead singer Guy Garvey explains what motivated the band to perform these very special shows, "We enjoyed our theatre tour of the States and Canada this summer so much that we decided to do some at home.

There is something magic about the history of old theatres and doing residencies in these lovely buildings means we can be playful with the staging. Also the band often discuss how great it would be to play older and rarer songs of ours alongside the ones we are best known for. We are also hoping for a range of excellent guests and are really excited about these shows
