Jeff Lynne'sELO have announced an eight date United Kingdom arena tour for next year. The tour kicks off in Oakland next August and zig-zags across the country before wrapping up at Philadephia's Wells Fargo Center.
"Our audiences are awesome". It's like they're in the group.
After a almost 30-year hiatus, Lynne revived the group in September 2014 under the moniker "Jeff Lynne'sElectric Light Orchestra" at the sold-out BBC Radio 2's Festival in a Day.
In a statement accompanying the tour's announcement, Jeff Lynne said, "Our Audiences are unbelievable". In 2017, they performed at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony as part of the class of inductees, while 2016 saw them touring Europe in support of their first album in 14 years, 2015's Alone in the Universe.
Directed by Paul Dugdale, the release captures Lynne's sold-out show before 60,000 fans at London's Wembley Stadium this past June, where he delivered material from the group's extensive hit-filled discography; the show also includes tracks by The Move and The Traveling Wilburys'.
Tickets for ELO's tour go on sale November 17th at Ticketmaster, though fans who preorder the band's new Wembley or Bust concert film can receive a "priority access" pre-sale code that would allow them to purchase tickets three days earlier, starting November 14th.
