St Paul's gig for Absolute

Absolute Radio has announced details of an intimate gig featuring Elbow later this month at London's St Paul's Cathedral.

The show will be the start of the station's summer of live music programming and air in Full HD sound quality on the station during June.

The concert takes place on 26th May and will be broadcast on Absolute Radio on 5th June, as well as being streamed online using FLAC technology (Fully Lossless Audio Codec). The gig will also be filmed in HQ Video quality and will be available to view on-demand alongside the full HD audio on the station's website.

As part of Absolute Radio Live this year, the brand will be using its Absolute Radio Extra digital station to allow listeners to hear uninterrupted coverage of the gigs recorded. Other events already booked in for the live music season include the 80s Rewind Festival, Oxfordshire's Cornbury Festival, Wireless Festival, Glastonbury, V Festival, Latitude, Isle of Wight Festival and Hard Rock Calling.

The Elbow gig in St Paul's Cathedral follows other shows in unusual places including Elton John at the Union Chapel, Biffy Clyro in the Houses of Parliament and Texas at Tower Bridge.

Clive Dickens, Absolute Radio Chief Operating Officer told "We’re passionate about live music and are using Absolute Radio’s digital expertise to bring our listeners even closer to the performances in 2011. Elbow are a hugely popular band amongst our audiences and we are incredibly proud they are kicking off Absolute Radio Live – to do it in such a memorable setting as St Paul’s Cathedral will make it all the more special."
