A new date has been announced for Jeff Lynne’s ELO tour in October with an extra gig to take place at Arena Birmingham on Tuesday October 13.

A Bit of History
From 1972 to 1986, ELO accumulated 27 Top 40 songs on the UK single charts including Livin’ Thing, Mr Blue Sky, Evil Woman, Don’t Bring Me Down and a Number 1 hit with Xanadu featuring Olivia Newton John.
The band will play Arena Birmingham (to be named Utilita Arena Birmingham in April) on Sunday October 11 and the new date Tuesday October 13. Tickets for new date to see Jeff Lynne’s “ELO Out of Nowhere Tour” go on sale on Friday 7 February at 9am. You can get yours from The Ticket Factory here. They will sell out fast!
Lynne re-formed ELO with former member Richard Tandy in 2014. And this was the same year he was given a star on the Birmingham Walk of Stars. Moreover, this was followed a year later by a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Furthermore, with more than 50 million albums sold, ELO ranks among the most popular acts of its era. Those totals cover four consecutive Top 10 albums and seven reaching the Top 20. And, Lynne’s reach, of course, has extended far beyond ELO. He has touched millions as a producer and collaborator, most notably as a member of the Traveling Wilburys. In this projects he worked alongside George Harrison, Bob Dylan, Roy Orbison and Tom Petty.
