...Elbow are my favourite band. All seven albums are sublime and incredibly important to me. In my opinion Guy is the greatest lyricist, most consistent, of my musical listening life. I had a little cry when they played Latitude 2008, and that year hit the big time, with a huge crowd singing along to the band I'd loved for years. Seen them 13 times and every time is like a huge joyous hug. They have a very large loyal following, who would stand in a field and listen to Guy belt out the phone book. But that's my opinion, each to their own and all that, some people insist they enjoy Ed Sheeran.
Wouldn't be fussed either way if they did headline, I'll be getting my 2018 fix of them in March, but would be a good send off on the Sunday.
ps. Talking of joy...after seeing Gorillaz last night, that incredible show needs to come to Latitude in the summer!
