JEFF LYNNE's E.L.O. Plans First U.S. Concerts In 30 Years!


November 13, 2017

For the first time in more than 30 years, JEFF LYNNE's Electric Light Orchestra will mount a U.S. tour that will take place in August 2018! The announcement of the 10-city tour comes days before the release of the new, live set, Wembley or Bust  (Nov. 17).

Back in 2014, Jeff Lynne recorded and released Alone In The Universe, the first ELO album in more than 15 years, and he followed up the album's release with critically acclaimed tours in both the U.K. and Europe. Additionally, ELO was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame earlier this year.

At the British and European shows, Mr. Lynne was clearly quite pleased with the band's performances and the incredibly positive reaction from the audiences, with him commenting in the tour's press release, "Our audiences are amazing. It’s like they’re in the group. We can’t wait to play for them again. Tickets for the ELO North American Tour go on sale November 17th. Check out the tour itinerary below. Rock on, ELO!
