Indie band Elbow are making use of a Nord Stage piano on their current British tour.

The group's keyboard player Craig Potter is using a Nord Stage 88 as the group travel the country in support of new album Build a Rocket Boys!

He said the musical instrument will have an important role to play in Elbow's live shows from now on, reports MI-Pro.

"I'm so impressed by the Nord Stage 88 that it's made its way into our full-time live set up. I have a feeling it'll be there for some time," said Potter, who also acts as the group's producer.

The instrument offers a combination of vintage electric piano and high-quality acoustic piano sounds, along with a synthesizer section and organ modelling.

Elbow started their arena tour in Glasgow last night (March 15th) and are due to perform in Newcastle this evening.

Further shows are planned this month in Nottingham, Sheffield, Liverpool, Birmingham and Cardiff, as well as Manchester and Brighton.
