Over four decades after their first hit the music of ELO still sounds pretty extraordinary, a lush mix of classical and pop with the kind of killer hooks that lodge themselves in your brain the second you hear them and just don’t ever leave. It looks unlikely that the band will ever get back together again but happily The ELO Experience has stepped into the breach and are dropping by (or dropping in...by space ship perhaps?) The New Alexandra Theatre on Friday August 2nd.
Tickets available right now, right here.
PS: In honour of the weather (I read the other day that this is the longest period of sunny weather since 2007...jeez...no wonder everyone's running around naked) here's a suitably sunny track from the original band too! Altogether now "Mr Blue Skyyyy..."
