A Tyrannosaurus rex shocked thousands of fans of indie superstars Elbow as it stomped on stage at the Eden Sessions in Cornwall this evening (July 15).

The dinosaur stormed the arena ahead of the Manchester band’s headline show at the Eden Project, the last Eden Sessions show of the summer. This was the second night of an Elbow double-header, with the band playing to critical acclaim last night.

Elbow lead-singer Guy Garvey also took time out before the show to meet the dinosaur.

The prehistoric beast is one of the stars of this summer’s Dinosaurs Unleashed event at Eden, which starts on Monday (July 21).

Dinosaurs Unleashed will turn visitors into true explorers as they track down and discover amazing things about the giant beasts that used to rule the planet.

In The Crater of the Tyrant King, they will have an amazing close encounter with the most feared predator of all, a Tyrannosaurus rex, as it devours its Triceratops prey. This incredibly detailed immersive experience promises to be a sensory feast that visitors will never forget.

Beyond the crater, they will have the chance to hone their explorer skills by searching for an escaped dinosaur.  If they are brave enough they will come within touching distance of the lost monster.

The Dig Pit will provide adventure of a different kind as families burrow down to discover a fossilised Stegosaurus skeleton and see how palaeontologists first found and pieced together the giants of the past.
