      I am loving them right now!!! just have a best of album, but its never off!!! anyone else sharing this ELO summer?!

        I have a best of too, but I had an ELO summer a few years ago.

        Good stuff.

          I know what you mean. I normally don't buy best of albums anymore (usually for bands I like I prefer the album tracks to the singles), but recently saw one for ELO in a bargain bin, and I have no other ELO, so I picked it up. It is fantastic. That will probably lead me into buying more material.

            Just bought this box set:

            Bargain price. I didn't own a single ELO track before I got this, I think. Now I have almost all of them! Just listened to the first couple of albums so far. Very different sound to what I expected, only really knowing a few of the ELO hits. Really enjoying it though. Some top quality music, and very varied and weird! Fave track so far is "From The Sun to the World (BOOGIE No. 1)", but plenty of great stuff to come, I'm sure.

              I plan on buying Mr. Blue Sky (Jeff Lynne's remakes of ELO hits) and his new album Long Wave.

                Have 2 of their GH albums, and there was the Jeff Lynne doc a few month back, superbly crafted songs

                  Yes, I still have that on my DVR.

                    JEFF LYNNE?S ELO ?LIVE IN HYDE PARK? RELEASED ON 11 SEPTEMBER

                    On 11 September 2015, Eagle Rock Entertainment, in association with the BBC, release ?Live In Hyde Park? by Jeff Lynne?s ELO on DVD, Blu-ray and digital formats.

                    This release offers fantastic value with the full length concert and a feature length documentary on the same disc.

                    Jeff Lynne said, ?It seemed like the entire 50,000 were singing and clapping along, which carried on for the whole night. The Hyde Park concert turned out to be one of the most memorable shows ever for me?.

                    As well as the full ?Live In Hyde Park? show, there is the feature length documentary ?Mr Blue Sky ? The Story Of Jeff Lynne and ELO? and also new interviews filmed at Hyde Park.

                    Jeff Lynne has been involved every step of the way with every aspect of this production, especially the audio delivery, saying: ?It?s important to me that viewers experience the Hyde Park show exactly as it was performed on the night?.in stereo?.

                      Now up for pre-order on DVD & BluRay on Amazon (UK)

                        Ken Bruce on BBC Radio 2 this morning has announced some exciting news for ELO fans coming soon but no hints as to what it actually is.

                          Not a big fan of ELO in a way that I have all their records but they made some catchy infectious songs. I think everything Jeff Lynne records have a particular ELO sound.

                            Jeff has confirmed a one-off show in London's Porchester Hall on Monday 9th November, to launch the new album.

                            Tickets go on sale today (Thursday 5th November) at 12:00pm

                            http://www.livenation.co.uk/artist/jeff-lynne-s-elo-tickets?c=social_20151105_54925116&adbid=662196418174521344&adbpl=tw&adbpr=20435270

                              I've heard a rumour about an ELO gig at the Genting Arena in Birmingham on 16th April 2016.

                              Nothing confirmed but hopefully positive news of a tour is coming either at the Radio 2 gig next week or the Porchester Hall gig on Monday.

                                The following UK tour dates have been announced:

                                Tuesday 5th April ? Liverpool Echo Arena, Liverpool
                                Thursday 7th April ? Capital FM Arena, Nottingham
                                Saturday 9th April ? First Direct Arena, Leeds
                                Sunday 10th April ? Manchester Arena, Manchester
                                Tuesday 12th April ? The SSE Hydro, Glasgow
                                Thursday 14th April ? Metro Radio Arena, Newcastle
                                Saturday 16th April ? Genting Arena, Birmingham
                                Sunday 17th April ? Genting Arena, Birmingham
                                Wednesday 20th April ? The O2 Arena, London
                                Friday 22nd April ? The O2 Arena, London

                                Tickets for all venues go on general sale this Friday (13th November) at 9:00am with selected pre-sales set to start on Wednesday morning, also at 9:00am

                                  I dont normally complain about ticket prices but i cant help that ELO's are on the expensive side frankly,yes i know in the UK at least Paul's are a bit more expensive but you know what you're getting 3 hours of quality,Jeff hasnt toured for what 30 years or so?

                                  Too much of a gamble for me.

                                    Seeing Jeff live is one of my bucket list guys, I saw him at CFG but I always wanted to see him perform his songs.

                                    I was planning on going over for the Liverpool show because I just don't think there is enough demand for an arena tour of the States and I am not sure Jeff will bother with smaller venues.

                                    Luckily he added some small venue shows to promote the new record and I got tix for Irving Plaza this morning. I am sure the show will be very similar to the Porchester Hall show and I am fine with that

                                      He's going to play a smaller venue in NYC on a Friday at 6PM. Too early for me to get there. It's sold out. Hope he does another venue on the weekend!

                                      Listening to the new album

                                        Been away at a Metal festival all weekend but managed to bag a couple of tickets for Jeff's show in Glasgow next April.

                                        That's another one off my "To See" list.

                                          This is a GREAT boxed set!! I got it as a gift and now all I need is Zoom and Alone in the Universe. It seems the deluxe version is only available on Amazon, in the U.S. Have the new album for free on Spotify!

                                          Jeff just added a 4th concert to the O2! Thinking of crossing the pond, so have been saving for a while... At 140 £ that's 212$ and a plane ticket! Can't get to the one in NY

                                          I LOVE this new album, every song is fantastic. My favs so far are All My Life, The Sun Will Shine On You, Love and Rain with that bouncy bass, When I Was A Boy, When The Night Comes, Talk To Me very ELOy, Alone In The Universe...I'm naming the whole album It's wonderful!!

                                            love2travel flew over for the ELO Hyde Park show last year and we had a blast, the gig was one of the best I've been too, it certainly wasn't a gamble hengirl! You just have to watch the DVD of the show to realise how good it was. I do think the show will be longer on the tour than the Festival headliner slot.

                                            I'm going to two of the four London shows it was that good last year. Also, Jeff's voice hasn't changed that much, no touring has helped him preserve it.

                                            The link below shows ELO playing last Thursday for the BBC In Concert programme.
