The legacy left by Jeff Lynne & The
Electric Light Orchestra barely needs any
introduction – suffice to say that between

combined UK and US Top 40 hits than any
other band on the planet!
In 2016 Jeff Lynne’s ELO came back to
prominence with the release of a brand
new album – Alone In The Universe and a
UK and World tour. Blending rock rhythms
with classical influences, ELO also released
many classic albums such as ‘A New World
Record’, ‘Discovery’ and ‘Out of the Blue’,
and many sell out tours which further
established them as one of the most
important and influential bands ever.
The ELO Experience are the world’s
foremost tribute to The Electric Light
Orchestra. With a sensational string
section, a stunning light show and large
screen projection to further enhance the
experience. This incredible show accurately
reproduces the songs and sounds and takes
you on a magical musical journey.
