Jeff Lynne’s ELO adds dates to North American tour

Jeff Lynne’s ELO have added second shows in Los Angeles and New York “due to strong ticket demand” as part of their 2018 summer tour of North America.

The band will follow their August 4 concert at The Forum in Los Angeles with an appearance on August 5, and will now play New York’s Madison Square Garden on August 22 after their originally-announced August 21 date.

A Facebook presale is now underway, with tickets for the second Los Angeles show going on sale Friday, December 8, at 10:00am PST, and available for the second New York date on Saturday, December 9, at 10:00am EST.

The run comes on the heels of the Electric Light Orchestra’s induction into the 2017 Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame this past April and a series of sold-out 2017 European shows in support of 2015’s “Alone In The Universe”, which resulted in the recently-released live package, “Wembley Or Bust.”

Directed by Paul Dugdale, the project captures Lynne’s sold-out show before 60,000 fans at London’s Wembley Stadium this past June, where he delivered material from the group’s extensive hit-filled discography; the show also includes tracks by The Move and The Traveling Wilburys.

Lynne is looking forward to returning to stages across North America next year.

“Our audiences are amazing,” he says. “It’s like they’re in the group. We can’t wait to play for them again.”
