Following his 2016 Glastonbury performance, pioneering English musician and composer, Jeff Lynne, has announced he'll bring the sounds of the Electric Light Orchestra to London's Wembley Stadium on Saturday, 24th June 2017 for his only currently scheduled UK date at the time.
Tickets go on sale on Friday, 1st July with prices ranging from £40.30 - £121.00 via Ticketmaster.
Jeff Lynne, and his Birmingham brothers Roy Wood and Bev Beven, founded the trend-setting progressive rock band the Electric Light Orchestra in 1970 combining elements of rock and psychedelic rock of the day with larger-than-life symphonic arrangements. Existing mainly during the 70s and 80s, until it disbanded in 1986, the ELO churned out eleven albums before briefly reforming in 2001. During its heyday, albums like 'Discovery,' and 'Time' topped the UK charts, while classics 'A New World Record,' 'Out of the Blue,' Secret Messages,' and 'Balance of Power' didn't stray too far off - all of which broke the top ten position.
Jeff Lynne came back with this version of the band, Jeff Lynne's ELO, in 2014 along with album 'Alone in the Dark,' which was met with open arms from fans, reaching the fourth spot on the charts.
Fan can expect to hear hits such as "Evil Woman," "Showdown," "All Over the World," "When I Was a Boy," "Mr. Blue Sky," "Don't Bring Me Down," and others live in an open air summer concert. Not half bad!
Last time in town, Jeff Lynne's ELO played the same venue as part of a mini April residency.
If you?re a fan of Jeff Lynne, there are similar artists with concerts coming up in London, like Don Henley, etc.
