VIDEO: Jeff Lynne’s ELO preview Wembley Or Bust concert film

Jeff Lynne’s ELO have released a video trailer preview of their forthcoming concert film package, “Wembley Or Bust.”

Due November 17, the set presents Lynne’s triumphant sold-out show before 60,000 fans at London’s Wembley Stadium this past June, where he delivered material from the Electric Light Orchestra’s extensive hit-filled discography to "Do Ya" from his days with The Move, The Traveling Wilburys’ "Handle With Care", and "When I Was A Boy" from his 2015 ELO comeback set “Alone In The Universe.”

“It’s the best time I ever had in music,” says Lynne of the Wembley experience. “It is beyond anything I could have imagined.”

Directed by Paul Dugdale, “Wembley Or Bust” will be available in multiple formats, including 2CD/Blu Ray, 2 CD/DVD, 2CD and 3LP packages.

Formed in Birmingham, UK in 1970 by Lynne, Roy Wood and drummer Bev Bevan, ELO’s unique mix of rock and classic elements saw the group amass a series of hits throughout the 1970s with songs like “Evil Woman”, “Livin’ Thing”, “Strange Magic”, “Telephone Line”, “Shine A Little Love” and “Don’t Bring Me Down”, among others.

ELO members went their separate ways in 1986, with Bevan carrying on as “ELO Part II” before selling his half of the rights to the ELO brand to Lynne in early 2000.

Encouraged by the success of the 2000 box set “Flashback”, Lynne released “Zoom” in 2001 and then, in 2012, issued “Mr, Blue Sky: The Very Best of Electric Light Orchestra”, a package that featured new recordings of the group’s hits by the singer.

The multi-instrumentalist has been touring in recent years under the banner Jeff Lynne’s ELO.

The Electric Light Orchestra were inducted into the 2017 Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame this past April during a ceremony in New York – watch their performance at the event here.
