Win tickets to see Elbow’s upcoming North American tour

The British band Elbow has never cracked America the way some of its contemporaries—like Coldplay and Snow Patrol—have, but maybe that’s a reflection of the band’s subtlety. Elbow’s gorgeous sixth album, recorded at Peter Gabriel’s Real World studio, will be out in America tomorrow: It’s called The Take Off And Landing Of Everything, and it will be followed by a U.S. tour. That’s where you come in: We’ve got a pair of tickets to give away to any show on the tour, plus a copy of the new CD. Just send us an e-mail with your preferred city (the tour dates are below, followed by a video for “New York Morning”), and we’ll pick a winner before the tour starts. (ARV of prize: $50.) Good luck!
