The ELO Tribute Show

The ELO Tribute Show

The ELO Show - A tribute to the music and Genius of Jeff Lynne and ELO   A brand new show celebrating the music of Jeff Lynne and E.L.O. With a band of amazing musicians including a female string section this will be a fabulous night of hit after hit from such a vast back catalogue.   Jeff Lynne and ELO famously carried on the legacy of the Beatles where in his own words he wanted to "Carry on from where I am the Walrus left off' and combined Classical music with motifs of the greats with Rock and Roll like no other musician before. The album 'Out of the Blue' released in 1977 catapulted them into Rock history and truly made them one of the biggest bands in the World at the time. After many years of touring Jeff parted ways with the band to focus on producing some of the greatest musicians of the time namely, George Harrison, Tom Petty, Roy Orbison, Paul McCartney and The Beatles.   Jeff resurrected the ELO legacy in 2014 with a new lineup and a stunning stageshow and has been touring the World Arenas and stadiums to this day.   The ELO show gives (almost) as good a show as Jeff but on a smaller scale, but still with a stunning lightshow and 3D video screens very similar to Jeff's current backdrop.   Expect songs like, 'Evil Woman', Don't bring me down', 'Telephone Line', 'Sweet Talkin Woman', 'Turn to stone', 'Wild west Hero', 'The Diary of Horace Wimp' and of course the legendary 'Mr.Blue Sky' plus many more with a surprise or two.   Don't miss out on this fantastic night of nostalgia and classic tunes.
