Jeff Lynne’s ELO back on tour
By Sean Graham
Fans of Jeff Lynne and ELO are in for a treat next year, as it was announced this morning that they will be hitting the road again next year with a brand new tour and Jeff and the band, can’t wait to get started.
Following triumphant shows at Wembley Stadium, Hull KCOM Stadium, Sheffield Arena and Glasgow SSE Hydro earlier this summer, Jeff Lynne’s ELO announce 8 arena shows for autumn 2018 including a show at the O2 Arena Wednesday 17th October.
The tour will come to The SSE Hydro, Glasgow on 3 October 2018. Tickets will go on sale 9am, Friday 17 November priced £56.75 – £130.55 (inc. admin fee) and will be available from www.thessehydro.com or 0844 395 4000.
Looking ahead to the new shows, Jeff said; “Our audiences are amazing. It’s like they’re in the group. We can’t wait to play for them again.”
More popular than ever, Jeff Lynne’s ELO have always been known for their epic live shows and with a distinct style that seamlessly and innovatively blends rock, pop and classical, ELO has had twenty six UK Top 40 singles, making Lynne’s sweeping productions some of the most recognisable music of the last forty years and helping sell over 50 million records worldwide.
June’s stunning Wembley Stadium gig is being immortalised in the live DVD ‘Wembley Or Bust’ out November 17th. In ‘Wembley or Bust’, we see Jeff and his remarkable musical ensemble filling Wembley Stadium
with one of the greatest rock & roll spectacles of all time, complete with bells, whistles and spaceships in front of a 60,000 capacity crowd.
Widely agreed upon as one of the greatest record producers in music history, Lynne was a co-founder and member of The Travelling Wilburys together with Bob Dylan, Roy Orbison, George Harrison and Tom Petty as well as a producer and collaborator with some of the biggest names in music including The Beatles, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Joe Walsh, and most recently, Bryan Adams.
This sounds like it will be a show that no fan of Jeff’s or ELO will want to miss as it will be full of hits from a wonderful career and doubt fans will be holding on tight, until the tickets are released this Friday!
