EMMA LEE

Like many great bands before them, Elbow swaggered out of Manchester armed with their guitars and a clutch of tunes ready to win the hearts of the record-buying public.

And the audience at Norwich Waterfront last night fell in love with the Mercury Music Prize nominated band – and their witty on-stage banter.

The set mostly consisted of fragile, lush ballads and emotionally charged, uplifting, riff-laden anthems from their acclaimed debut album Asleep in the Back.

But last night's performance was anything but snooze-inducing.

The band looked to be enjoying the gig as much as the audience at the intimate venue, but they probably will not be playing this size for long.
