Jeff Lynne’s ELO announces First North American Tour In 30+ Years
Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame act Jeff Lynne’s ELO will hit the road in August for the group’s first North American tour in 30+ years. Jeff Lynne will lead the band, which last embarked on an extensive U.S. tour in 1981. Lynne and his mates tested the waters with a series of short runs in the U.K. and Europe as well as shows in New York City and Hollywood over the past two years.
Of the tour, Jeff Lynne said, “Our Audiences are amazing. It’s like they’re in the group. We can’t wait to play for them again.” The tour begins at Oracle Arena in Oakland on August 2. From there, Lynne brings the iconic band to Los Angeles, Denver, Houston, Dallas, Chicago (Rosemont), Detroit, Toronto, New York City and Philadelphia.
