Almost 1 million people have used the BBC's red button service to watch a concert by award-winning band Elbow, making it the most popular music session to be shown using the interactive feature.

The gig attracted 959,000 viewers when screened between 31 January and 7 February.

Elbow performed with a 56-piece orchestra and 20-strong choir for Radio 2 at Abbey Road studios on 17 January. The band won this year's Brit Award for best group and the Mercury Music Prize for their album The Seldom Seen Kid.

The red button service was launched in November 1998. An average of 11 million people a week use it to view news and sport information, as well as musical programmes such as Glastonbury Festival and The Proms.
