Great news for ELO fans...


Jeff Lynne may be planning a run of Electric Light Orchestra shows in the UK next year.

Nothing’s been confirmed but he’s considering the possibility followed by a US tour.

He reformed ELO at Hyde Park in London last year and enjoyed the experience so much that he completed his album "Alone in the Universe" under the band name.

But the cancellation of their last major tour in 2001 means he’s being cautious about the future.

Rolling Stone has reported that Lynne’s manager is “planning some big concerts in the UK in the spring.” Lynne says: “As far as more shows, we’ll see what happens. If it goes well I’ll certainly do more stuff. Let’s hope it goes well.”

The previous tour was called off as a result of low ticket sales. “That showed me I probably shouldn’t even bother,” he recalls. “My manager spared me the details of everything. But I wasn't too demoralised, because I got some tunes in films, and I just love recording.”


The Album Alone in the Universe is released on November 13 and is available to pre-order now.
