From Out Of Nowhere Tour


Jeff Lynne's ELO -- From Out Of Nowhere Tour

An in-depth look at the 2020 tour

Comments and Observations

This tour was first announced on January 24, 2020. It was only a tour of Europe from September 19 to October 21, 2020 and hitting 14 cities. Sadly, on May 15, 2020 on Jeff Lynne's official Facebook page, it was announced that the tour was cancelled.

The cause of the cancellation was reported to be due to the "ongoing coronavirus pandemic". Although the start of the tour was about four months away, it was likely decided that they closing of venues may still occur at that time and it was a waste to hire crew and staff, as well as design and produce tour specific products when chances were good they would not be needed. There was a double sided tour t-shirt and a tour screenprint produced and sold on the Jeff Lynne's ELO UK shop at about the time the tour was announced, so these are products for a tour that will never happen.

It was announced that Dhani Harrison was expected to open all shows on the tour, much as he had done for the Live 2019 tour shows. And, of course, this gives a good indication that he would come on stage to sing the Traveling Wilburys' Handle With Care with the band again.
