Electric Light Orchestra Tickets
More than 35 years since they last toured, the English rock band Electric Light Orchestra treated the fans to a North American arena run during the 2018 summers. Now on popular demand they are a back for an encore trek that will kick off on June 20, 2019 from Anaheim, California. Electric Light Orchestra tickets are rising in sales for the 20 dates that the progressive pop-rock band has announced so far. While many members have come and gone, ELO has been riding on the shoulders of its frontman, Jeff Lynne. Their set-list is heavy on the hits like “When I Was a Boy” and “Handle With Care”.

The First Movement – How It Started
Their rise was one from the ashes during the post Beatles era. While many thought it was a one-off success, Electric Light Orchestra proved otherwise under the leadership of Roy Wood. As a member of the rock band The Move, Wood released multiple hits including “I Can Hear the Grass Grow” and “Flowers in the Rain”. But his creative differences with the other members led to the formation of Electric Light Orchestra.
Roy Wood’s vision was to pick up from where the Beatles left off and his heart was set on to form a symphonic pop band. Along with Jeff Lynne and Bev Bevan (drummer), he experimented on the track “10538 Overture” and it was a huge hit. It eventually paved way for Electric Light Orchestra to be formed in 1970.
Following an extravagant self-titled debut, Wood embarked on yet another project – glam rock, leaving the reins in Jeff Lynne’s hands. He immediately got into fleshing out the band, adding a violinist and two cellists into the lineup, thus dabbling into progressive rock and eventually making inroads into North America.
ELO experimented with pop as well and hits came pouring in with “Can’t Get It Out of My Head”, “Showdown” and “Evil Woman”. An extensive repertoire led to live concerts and in no time Electric Light Orchestra tickets were selling out, making them the 70s’ favorite.
The New Beatles
The legends Beatles are irreplaceable but there had to be a contender to their throne. Electric Light Orchestra reached out to meet some expectations and their 70s’ songs’ catalogue was quite fabulous. It helped that John Lennon was a fan of the band and he even cited “Showdown” as one of his favorite songs. He even went on to comment once that the ELO were the sons of the Beatles. George Harrison along with Ringo Starr has featured on the band’s albums like “Zoom”.
ELO’s debut self-titled album was an obvious tribute to the Beatles and 1973’s “On the Third Day” also radiated that influence, driven by pop anthems like “Ma-Ma-Ma Belle” and “Bluebird is Dead”. Perhaps the one big difference between the two bands was that ELO was finding more success in the US than their home country UK – and also unlike their mentors, were also facing criticism from the critics. While the fans begged to differ, the music critics were calling their songs dull and boring.
“Out of the Blue” – their first concept album was a huge hit, reaching Top 5 on the Billboard 200. Two years later in 1979 “Discovery” followed, topping the UK charts and peaking at number 5 on the US Billboard charts. Embracing the smooth and slick sounds of disco, the album produced chartbusters like “Don’t Bring Me Down”.
ELO’s latest album to hit the shelves is “Alone in the Universe”, released in 2015. First record to be produced under the banner of “Jeff Lynne’s ELO”, it broke through the Billboard 200 and topped the UK Rock charts.
Electric Light Orchestra returned to the music scene with live touring and even though they didn’t make any loud noises, their ‘comeback’ was noticed by the right people. In 2017, the lineup of ELO featuring Jeff Lynne, Roy Wood, Bev Bevan and Richard Tandy got inducted into the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame.
Then came Jeff Lynne’s ELO 2018 arena tour that the critics hailed as “epic, an avalanche of rock”. The soaring sales of Electric Light Orchestra tickets prompted an encore run, scheduled to start in 2019. 20 dates have been announced so far and Lynne along with his live band has been treating the crowd to 90-minute of nothing but classic rock. Every track performed by him receives a rousing reaction from the fans and in the end it’s an event full of musical glory and pop-rock bliss.
