    Everyone loves Elbow :)

    But planning a tour around the world takes planning and management that Morrissey simply doesn't have - Morrissey thinks that a one line mention on True to You is enough to sell out a venue anywhere in the world - Elbow have competitions, email distribution lists, twitter feeds, TV appearances ...

    Morrissey could perform a secret gig in Manchester tonight with zero publicity and it would be a sell out just by word of mouth, he could do it in LA as well, but to work up interest in far off places he (and his people) needs to put more effort in.

    Saw them once as me and my ex entered the venue towards the end of the show. Down the road in London Cinerama played as well so it was a lose-lose situation somehow.
