The sound of Elbow will fill the woods at Westonbirt Arboretum this summer, after the band announced they will be taking part in Forest Live.
Elbow’s rise to fame during the past few decades has seen them win two Ivor Novellos and a BRIT Award and establish a loyal fan base.
The group are known for stunning vocals and their performance of their best-known song, One Day Like This, in the stunning forest setting is sure to become a moment no audience will forget.
Elbow have released six albums, with their seventh record – Little Fictions – due to be released in February.
The group will perform a mixture of old and new songs at the Forest Live gig, which has been organised by the Forestry Commission in a bid to bring forests to new audiences.
Forest Live sees a range of performances at forests throughout the year, with profits from the gigs going back into the woodland.
Elbow will be at Westonbirt Arboretum, near Tetbury, on June 15. Tickets, priced £41.50, are on sale now. They are available via 03000 680400 or via www.forestry.gov.uk/music
