After the monotony of The Open, Elbow are a very welcome change. More people have arrived now, and there is much more reaction to the songs.
Elbow�s songs are huge and uplifting. They fill the packed arena, and get the crowd of obsessed Muse fans at the front nodding their head and tapping their feet in appreciation. The band interact well with the crowd, at one point getting them to call for Muse to �see if they can hear you�.
The fact that the band play a song called �Newborn� in front of more than 12,000 Muse fans was probably not a good plan, as the mutinous muttering proves, but the band certainly play well tonight and set the mood for the headliners.
