Elbow will play the 3Arena in February next year with support from John Grant.

Their seventh studio album, Little Fictions, was released in February having been written, produced and recorded in a house in Scotland, Guy's attic in Prestwick, and finally Blueprint Studios in Salford.

The departure of drummer Richard Jupp prior to that process necessitated a different approach to rhythm with the band using percussive noises, sampling and loops to build tracks.

Speaking to the Sunday Independent earlier this year Guy Garvey revealed that the first track, Magnificent (She Says) was written when was honeymooning with his wife Rachael Stirling last year.

"After about three days on honeymoon I said to my missus, 'Any chance I can check my emails to see if the lads have written anything?' And she said, 'Yeah, OK then', and the music to Magnificent, minus the strings, was there in my inbox, and the first verse was pretty much written on the spot."

Tickets for the 3Arena date, February24th, 2018, are priced from €59.50 inclusive of booking & facility fees go on sale this Thursday, 12th October at 9am from Ticketmaster outlets
