VIDEO: Jeff Lynne performs ELO classic on Jimmy Kimmel Live

Jeff Lynne’s ELO performed a pair of tracks on ABC-TV’s Jimmy Kimmel Live on Monday, including the band’s 1975 classic “Evil Woman.”

The lead single from the group’s fifth album, “Face The Music”, became their first worldwide hit, scoring Top 10 spots in several countries including a No. 10 position on the US Billboard Hot 100.

The group played “When I Was A Boy” from their newly-released album “Alone In The Universe” on the broadcast and the classic tune as a web exclusive.

Lynne’s ELO will launch their 2016 live schedule with a UK tour in April followed by a series of European dates.

Formed in Birmingham, UK in 1970, ELO scored hits in the 70s as a modern rock group with overtones of classical music, including “Strange Magic”, “Telephone Line”, "Mr. Blue Sky" and “Don’t Bring Me Down”, among others.
