EDITORS’ NOTES

With a new crew of bandmates, Jeff Lynne recreated the classic ELO experience at London's Wembley Arena in June 2017, adding a few new twists along the way. Here, the titanic pop hooks and epic orchestral sweep of ELO hits like the rocking "Don't Bring Me Down," the Beatles-esque "Mr. Blue Sky," and the longing "Telephone Line" are rendered with an almost revelatory physicality. Lynne also puts a new spin on his old supergroup The Traveling Wilburys' "Handle with Care" and ELO's 1980 soundtrack collaboration with Olivia Newton-John, "Xanadu," by singing lead on both.

About Jeff Lynne's ELO

Formerly known as Electric Light Orchestra -- an influential pop/rock group who took their cues from the Beatles -- their name was eventually changed to Jeff Lynne's ELO, primarily to differentiate from tribute acts and offshoots that were touring under similar names. Since their formation in the '70s, the group underwent multiple line-up changes, with members staying with the band for varying amounts of time; drummer Bev Bevan, for example, played alongside Lynne for a number of years before leaving, eventually forming his own iteration of the band: Electric Light Orchestra, Part II.

The name of Jeff Lynne's ELO was coined in 2014 for a performance in Hyde Park, but was retained for releases and tours in the following years. In 2015, they released a studio album, Alone in the Universe -- the debut record to feature their new name on the cover -- which consisted of their first original material since 2001's Zoom. With fresh songs at their disposal, the band went on tour, including dates in America, festival appearances, and a U.K. show at Wembley that was recorded for their 2017 live album Wembley or Bust. ~ Liam Martin
