Jeff Lynne's ELO Showcases Classic Rock Anthems On New Live Album "Wembley Or Bust"

In 2015, English singer/songwriter/composer/producer and musician, Jeff Lynne reformed his band Electric Light Orchestra (ELO) and recorded an album of new material titled "Alone In The Universe." The response he received was overwhelming, when he took Jeff Lynne's ELO out on the road, performing at sold out arenas around the world. One of the last stops on the band's 2017 tour was recorded and was released on November 17th through Columbia Records.

Jeff Lynne's ELO performed a sold-out show to over 60,000 fans at Wembley Stadium in his home country on June 24, 2017. The show was filmed and released in a number of different formats, including a 2CD/Blu-ray set, a 2CD/DVD set, as simply a 2CD set and also 3 disc vinyl. The live set includes a mix of classic ELO songs like "Evil Woman," "Telephone Line" and "Don't Bring Me Down." Jeff Lynne makes sure to cover his entire career by performing "Do Ya" from his early 1970's band The Move and "Handle With Care" from the supergroup, the Traveling Wilburys. He also fits in his latest single "When I Was A Boy" along side other ELO classics like "Xanadu," "Can't Get It Out Of My Head" and the crowd favorite "Mr. Blue Sky." He wraps up the show with a six-minute version of one of his earliest hits, a cover of Chuck Berry's "Roll Over Beethoven."

Jeff Lynne's ELO will be hitting the states with new dates in August 2018. For a complete list of shows and to find out more about his new album "Wembley Or Bust," please visit jefflynneselo.com.
