After playing a spectacular televised one-off headline set as part of BBC’s Festival in a day in 2014, one of the biggest selling songwriters in music history Jeff Lynne is taking his “Alone In The Universe” across the UK.
With an extensive back catalogue of hits, including “Sweet Talkin’ Woman”, “Living Thing”, “Mr Blue Sky”, “Evil Woman”, “Don’t Bring Me Down”, “Turn To Stone”, “Ma-Ma-Ma Belle” and countless others, this is a unique opportunity to see one of the UK’s greatest ever musicians at his pristine best.
Tickets to see Jeff Lynne are highly coveted so book now to avoid disappointment. With a National Holidays Showtime break you’ll get tickets to the concert, hotel accommodation and coach travel all included.
One of the most influential artists of all time, Jeff Lynne has produced some of the most instantly recognisable music.
His trademark symphonic rock is characterised by a unique spaceship and semi-orchestral sound which feels like it’s literally landed from another planet.
The Electric Light Orchestra were one of the biggest bands of the 70s and 80s, during which they enjoyed 27 UK top 40 singles and sold over 50 million records worldwide.
Their 1977 album “Out Of The Blue” which featured some of the bands greatest hits “Sweet Talkin’ Woman”, “Turn To Stone”, “It’s Over” and “Mr Blue Sky” is one of the most iconic in music history, selling over 10million copies alone.
After folding the band, Lynne went on to co-found supergroup Traveling Wilburys along with Bob Dylan, Roy Orbison, George Harrison and Tom Petty.
He has also worked with some of the biggest names in music history, co-producing and writing for the likes of Paul McCartney, Brian Wilson and Eric Clapton.
Public appetite for ELO has remained strong and his comeback at Radio 2’s Festival In A Day, which saw Lynne perform with an orchestra of 60 musicians, showed what the world’s been missing.
His first full comeback tour for many years, this is one of most hotly anticipated Showtime packages we’ve ever put together. See this music legend while you can with National Holidays – simply use our holiday Search above.
