Live 2018 Tour

 

Jeff Lynne's ELO -- Live 2018 Tour

An in-depth look at the 2018 tour


Comments and Observations

Live 2018 tour graphicThis tour, billed as the "Live 2018" tour, was first announced on October 11, 2017. The tour started in North American in August 2018, running twelve dates across ten cities. It then moved to Europe for September and October 2018, hitting first the European continent, then ending in the UK and Ireland. It was the first real full tour of North America since 1981, thus there were some cities that ELO had not played since 1981 as well as Madison Square Garden, which had not been played since 1978. All shows were sold out or very nearly so.

Tom Petty image during Handle With CareThis tour was not touted as an Alone In The Universe tour, but rather just a "Live 2018" tour. It was promoting the newest Wembley Or Bust album, and as such, the setlist copied the songs and structure from that album, rendering the tour an effective "greatest hits" tour. Although it reflects the songs from the Wembley Or Bust album, two songs were not included: Prologue/Twilight and Ma-Ma-Ma Belle. The performance of Xanadu was played only at the first show at the Oracle Arena and the August 18 show at Scotiabank Arena, but it was otherwise dropped. Last Train To London was not used until the UK shows, where it replaced Can't Get It Out Of My Head in the setlist. During the performance of Handle With Care, various images of the Traveling Wilburys were shown from archive images. One of the first shown was of Tom Petty, who had just passed away less than a year before, and this generally got a strong reaction from the audiences.

The band, after playing together in 2016 and 2017 had grown really tight, playing comfortably on stage together. For some of the songs, especially during Roll Over Beethoven, the four guitarists would line up near the front of the stage and play together.

Also similar to the Wembley Or Bust show, the backdrops and artwork for the 2018 shows are nearly the same as the 2017 concerts, but with minor changes. The verticle screens were reduced from seven in 2017 to five for the 2018 shows. And LED floor showed graphics, often the same as the back screens, were similar to the 2017 shows.

Richard Tandy was unable to make the shows due to an undisclosed illness. As in the 2017 shows, Marcus Byrne moved from his keyboard duties to cover for Richard and Jo Webb filled in Marcus Byrne's old slot. The band was almost the same as 2017, with Bernie Smith being replaced by Steve Turner on keyboards. The reason for Bernie's departure is unknown.

Concert Selfie Announcements Reviewss
Melanie Lewis-McDonald did not perform at this concert as she was presumably ill. As a result, Rockaria! was replaced with Xanadu for this concert.

When tickets for this concert went on sale, the venue was called Air Canada Centre. By the time the concert was performed, it had been renamed to Scotiabank Arena.

Setlist

The Tour in 2018
Song Title Arrangement Graphics Used Song comments
Standin' In The Rain This is the same as the Out Of The Blue album arrangement, but with a taped intro (the "Concerto For A Rainy Day" intro) and slightly different ending. Standin' In The Rain graphicsThe back screen graphic shows animation of point-of-view flying through stormy, rainy skies, with many of the lightning effects timed to the music. The projection floor graphics show rain and storm effects that mirror the back screen animation.
Evil Woman This is the same as the Face The Music album arrangement, but without the orchestral intro and a non-fading ending. Evil Woman graphicsThe back screen graphic shows animation of a woman's eye, sometimes with flames running through the iris, but mostly on the middle three screens only. Big billowy flames roll across two side screens most of the time too. The projection floor graphics show roiling fire similar to the back screen animation.
All Over The World This is the same as the Xanadu album arrangement. All Over The World graphicsThese graphics are rotating images of the planet Earth, with heavy lights coming from all the cities, including fireworks and streaks of light linking various cities. Strangely, this means that it's night time "all over the world" since no daylight images of the planet are ever seen. The projection floor graphics show fireworks similar to the back screen animation.
Showdown This is the same as the original single arrangement, but with a non-fading ending. Showdown graphicsThese graphics show a nighttime scene, moving through a clearing in a forest, with starts and clouds streaking by. About halfway through, the point of view goes up to the sky only, where the stars rotate and the viewer flies through various space nebula There are no projection floor graphics used. Note, that this appears to be the same graphic used for When The Night Comes at the 2016 Alone In The Universe tour shows, although much more of the graphic is visible due to the different screen configuration.
Do Ya This is the same as the A New World Record album arrangement. There was no back screen or floor graphics used.
When I Was A Boy This is the same as the Alone In The Universe album arrangement. When I Was A Boy graphicsThis graphic is only featured on the center three screens with the outer screens left blank. It includes various point of view images of a large field at night, with several trees, a house and sometimes a single tree (and at one point, the silhouette of a giant bird). The footage ends with a bright light shining out from the night sky and the ELO spaceship flying in. This symbolically shows Jeff's boyhood dreams with the ELO spaceship being the final realization of those dreams. The projection floor graphics show several shimmering dots (too big to be stars), different from the back screen animation.
Livin' Thing This is the same as the A New World Record album arrangement, but with a non-fading ending. Livin' Thing graphicsThis is a strange graphic showing a rotating garden. It starts with a scene from space and during the violin intro, the point of view zooms in to a planet and through the clouds. As the main part of the song starts, the view comes to a garden in the middle of a jungle. The view rotates around the jungle, staying focused on the garden. During the choruses, it zooms into a closeup of the garden (still rotating), then zooms back out during the non-choruses. There were no projection floor graphics used.
Handle With Care This is the same as the Volume One album arrangement with a non-fading ending. Jeff sings the George Harrison lead vocal parts and Iain Hornal sings the Roy Orbison lead vocal parts. Also, the string players play as well, which was not on the original song at all. Handle With Care graphicsThis graphic shows a series of rotating yellow and brown circles and morphing, jagged geometric shapes; and about halfway through the song, a half circle comes to the fore and shows select scenes from the Traveling Wilburys home videos and music vidoes.The projection floor graphics show several moving geometric shapes, similar to the back screen animation but not matching exactly as the Traveling Wilburys are not shown. For this performance, Iain Hornal came to the front of the stage, standing between Jeff and Mike to play guitar and sing his lead vocal parts. Jo Webb moved to Iain Hornal's position on the background vocal mike to sing backing vocals and play guitar. At nearly all shows, during the animation when Tom Petty (who had died less than a year before) first appeared, the audience gave a loud cheer.
Rockaria! This is the same as the A New World Record album arrangement, but Jeff and backing vocalist Iain Hornal take turns on each verse and they sing alternate lines on the closing lines (starting with "Well we were reelin' and a rockin' all through the night"). Backing vocalist Melanie Lewis-McDonald supplies the opera singer bits. Rockaria! graphicsThis is a frenetic graphic of the ELO spaceship, rotating constantly with various geometric designs moving in the middle. Many of the images in the middle are also the label of the promo UK Rockaria! single (with the large "A" indicating it was the A-side). The projection floor graphics show a rotating record label, similar to the back screen animation. This song was not performed at the August 18th show inToronto show because backing singer Melanie Lewis-McDonald, who sings the opera parts on Rockaria!, was not present (and was presumably ill). It was replaced by Xanadu.
Can't Get It Out Of My Head This is the same as the Eldorado album arrangement, but with a non-fading ending. Can't Get It Out Of My Head graphicsThis is a somewhat static graphic, showing a large moon over gently undulating water. The graphic is only in the center three screens as it is the same graphic as the one used in 2016, which was not as wide. It is more zoomed than the 2016 or 2017 graphic so that only the bottom half of the moon is visible. The top half of the moon images is also missing, due to these limitations. The projection floor graphics show a moon and water similar to the back screen animation. This song was dropped for the UK concerts, being replaced by Last Train To London.
Last Train To London This is the same as the Discovery album arrangement, with a non-fading end. Last Train To London graphicsThis graphic shows a point-of-view of traveling over train tracks. The verses and instrumental break showing the slower movement across a futuristic landscape with strange structures around and odd crafts flying by. At the start of the choruses, there is a warp effect and the faster movement is through an neon-lit series of tunnels. At the "underneath the starry skies" line, the point-of-view momentarily shifts upward, showing the starry sky. The projection floor graphics are clever as they show movement over the train tracks, as if the tracks are moving across the stage floor, then over hte back screen. This song was added for the UK shows, replacing Can't Get It Out Of My Head.
10538 Overture This is the same as the original album/single arrangement, but with a non-fading ending. 10538 Overture graphicsThis is a series of barbed wire and chains flying toward the viewer. It is the same graphic used for the later 2016 shows. The projection floor graphics show the flying barbed wire and chains, similar to the back screen animation.
Xanadu This is the same as the Flashback box set arrangement. Xanadu graphicsThis graphic shows the point of view of looking into an alien cloudy sky, then panning down to an alien desert landscape, with strange alien plants in the foreground. This eventually transitions to a nighttine view of a large city, moving through the streets. At one point, the point of view lifts to the nighttime sky, with views of stars and nebulae, before returning to the city street view to end the song. The projection floor graphics show an alien landscape similar to the back screen animation. This song was only been performed at the August 2nd show in Oakland and the August 18th show in Toronto. It replaced Rockaria! at the Toronto show because backing singer Melanie Lewis-McDonald, who sings the opera parts on Rockaria!, was not present (and was presumably ill). This replacement at the Toronto show was slotted after Handle With Care, in the same setlist position at Rockaria!.
Shine A Little Love This is a shortened version of the single version (no choral intro), cutting everything from the second bridge ("can you understand...") to the end of the fourth verse, and inserting an acapella chorus in its place where the band claps along in an attempt to get the audience involved. Note that this is the same shortened arrangment as at the 2016 and 2017 shows. Shine A Little Love graphicsThe graphics are of a silvery glitter being tossed about on a black background, giving the effect of a fun, party atmosphere. Heavy green lasers also shine and move about across the audience (but not on the screen). The projection floor graphics show the same silvery glitter effects, similar to the back screen animation.
Wild West Hero This is the same as the Out Of The Blue album arrangement, with a long pause after the acapella bit starting with the [TBD] show. Wild West Hero graphicsThis graphic depicts a day on an American west landscape. It starts with a static view of an American western desert landscape; in an accelerated day, during daylight, clouds roll by until eventually the sun sets and the stars roll across the sky during night until eventually the sun rises to a new day. The projection floor graphics show the American western landscape, similar to the back screen animation.
Sweet Talkin' Woman This is the same as the Out Of The Blue album arrangement, but with a non-fading ending. Also, Jeff answers the "Where could she be?" line by singing "I don't know." Sweet Talkin' Woman graphicsThis graphic shows undulating, multi-colored ribbons flowing across the screens. The projection floor graphics show the flowing ribbons, similar to the back screen animation.
Telephone Line This is the same as the A New World Record album arrangement, but without the muted intro and with a non-fading ending. Telephone Line graphicsThis graphic starts with a series of electronic circuit drawings against a starfield rotating across the screens horizontally. Nearing the chorus, these circuit drawings then turn diagonal, then at the chorus, a collection of ribbons rotate about too. Following this, the patterns of circuit drawings get more complicated, taking on rotating geometric shapes, as if the telephone communications are getting more and more complicated. These graphics are accompanied with bright green lasers shining on the audience, which make the graphics sometimes difficult to see because they are obscured by the lasers and the smoke that was pumped out to illuminate the lasers. The projection floor graphics show the flowing circuit drawings, similar to the back screen animation.
Don't Bring Me Down This is the same as the Discovery album arrangement, but with a slightly bigger drum ending. Don't Bring Me Down graphicsThis graphic shows a neon football, often rotating in various directions. The projection floor graphics show the neon football, an exact duplicate of the back screen animation.
Turn To Stone This is the same as the Out Of The Blue album arrangement, but with a non-fading ending. Turn To Stone graphicsThis graphic features several displays of the viewer flying through asteroid fields in space. The scenes change with the music, changing with the lead versus the backing vocals, the choruses, musical fills, etc. This is the same as the 2017 graphics, but on five screens instead of seven. The projection floor graphics show the a slowly rotating field of stars and occasional asteroids. This is related to the back screen graphics, but it is not a duplicate of them.
Mr. Blue Sky This is the same as the Out Of The Blue album arrangement, complete with the "Concerto For A Rainy Day" coda, and a big drum finish. Mr. Blue Sky graphicsThis graphic is a blue sky with fast rolling white clouds. After the song finishes, an ELO spaceship flies to the center of the screen while the band gets together for a stage bow. The projection floor graphics show the blue sky and clouds, an exact duplicate of the back screen animation.
Roll Over Beethoven This is the ELO 2 UK album version, but missing the mellotron intro and Jeff and backing vocalist Iain Hornal take turns on each verse. The guitar jam in the middle is free form, with Jeff and Milton simply jamming away and each performance varies. Roll Over Beethoven graphicsThis graphic is very frenetic. It shows the ELO spaceship with a multicolored, rotating outer ring and the center using a rotating UK Harvest Roll Over Beethoven single or rotating and pulsating multicolored graphics. Near the end of the song, ELO spaceships fly in and out of view, sometimes showing the bottom of the ship rather than the logoed top. After the song finishes, an ELO spaceship flies to the center of the screen while the band gets together for a stage bow. This is almost the same graphic as used in the 2016 shows, but the spaceship flying in and out of view near the end is new. The projection floor graphics duplicates the back screen animation exactly except only the center part of the ELO spaceship (the record label or pulsating graphics) is shown.
It is confirmed that the band also played Last Train To London at soundchecks for several of the European shows, including Vienna, Munich and Mannheim. This must have been in preparation for the song to be performed at the UK concerts.

At Newcastle last night and the performance was superb ...!!

Been a fanboy of ELO since i heard "Beethoven" on AM radio in LA back in 73! Loved the Move's Looking On, and it was 1st album i ever bought in '70. Wife asked me for my 65th on Aug 4, "eagles or ELO concert". Replied: "ELO a hundred times over!!!" On Aug 5th i was thrilled that it WAS studio quality (one of Jeff's unfounded concerns at Wembley). Jeff's voice at 70 is still one of the cleanest, if not THE cleanest!!! Band was fantastic, vocals were spot on! As the manager says to Jeff in the Wembley video, "Brilliant"!!! NO argument here. The updated "Roll Over Beethoven" took me by surprise, but it was a ROCKIN' redo. Jeff knows best! As you can tell, i bot the Wembley or Bust BluRay the day after, on Aug 6th. Cant wait for Jeffs next gig in L.A. SIR Jeff (overdue!!), may you be like the energizer bunny......on and on and on ........!! LOVE YOU AND YOUR GREAT COMPOSITIONS MAN!!! Nick.

Definitely Jeff Lynnes E.L.O. A Brilliant show and for my Opinion, Live 2018 A Show of The Year any artist confused. Congratulations at all Members of The Band and Jeff Lynne we still prove that he is a Genius.

Tour Song Comments

Standin' In The Rain (Live 2018 Tour)
"Following a strong set by opening act Dawes, Lynne and his soundly versatile 12-piece band kicked off their headlining show with a great take on Standiní in the Rain, from the 1977 commercial blockbuster Out of the Blue."
Jim Harrington (August 3, 2018 - The Mercury News review of August 2, 2018 show)

"Lynneís ELO opened the 95 minute set with Standiní In The Rain from 1977ís Out of the Blue album. Released at the peak of the bands popularity when they were on the short list with Led Zeppelin and Fleetwood Mac as the greatest band on earth, it wasnít even one of the five singles from the 10 million selling double album, but itís a great opener that wastes no time demonstrating the kaleidoscope of sounds in the groups catalog."
Daniel Gluskoter (August 3, 2018 - Martinez Tribune review of August 2, 2018 show)

"Itís not often a rock concert starts off with cellos, and they sounded great on Standiní in the Rain. As black-and-white video screens flashed images of a mountain, clouds and rain..."
Leslie Katz (August 3, 2018 - San Francisco Examiner review of August 2, 2018 show)

"The group opened with Standin' in the Rain, one of five songs from Out of the Blue that was performed at the show."
Dave Lifton (August 3, 2018 - Ultimate Classic Rock review of August 2, 2018 show)

"This is not a tour for anyone looking to Lynne to revive deep tracks; he didnít wait this long to resume things not to give the (non-geek) people what they want. The only thing youíd really characterize as a vintage album track was the excellent choice of opener, Standiní in the Rain, presumably chosen in part because of its nifty, orchestrated prologue part, which gives the show a shot as something that briefly feels like an overture without delving into the entirety of a Fire on High. It also makes for a good bookend to Mr. Blue Sky, which closes the main set with a similarly symphonic coda,"
Chris Willman (August 6, 2018 - Variety review of August 5, 2018 show)

"The opening song was Standing in the Rain [sic]. Storm clouds and lightning visuals filled five skyscraper-tall screens behind the band and the audienceís thunderous applause provided a fitting sound effect to the moment."
Jesse Sendejas Jr. (August 11, 2018 - Houston Press review of August 10, 2018 show)

"The show was bookended with tracks from side three of 1977 double-LP Out of the Blue, and its 'Concerto for a Rainy Day.' Standiní in the Rain began the show with the orchestral flourish of Lynneís string section and crashing thunder, before launching into a driving rock groove. At the other end of the concert, Mr. Blue Sky brought the main set to its thrilling conclusion with celebratory high spirit."
Jeff Elbe (August 15, 2018 - Illinois Entertainer review of August 15, 2018 show)

"To that end, whether on the precise and methodical string-laden opener Standing in the Rain [sic] or the comparably loose, Marvin Gaye-esque R&B strut of Showdown, there was a whimsical-but-grounded precision at play."
Dan Hyman (August 16, 2018 - Chicago Tribune review of August 15, 2018 show)

"Opening the show with Standing In The Rain [sic] (from Out Of The Blue) was a stroke of genius. It was a gentle easing way into a concert that was full of hits, emotion, and pure genius. "
Aaron Badgley (August 19, 2018 - Spill magazine review of August 18, 2018 show)

Evil Woman (Live 2018 Tour)
"[Standin' In The Rain was] then quickly followed with the fan favorite Evil Woman off ELOís fifth album, 1975ís Face the Music."
Jim Harrington (August 3, 2018 - The Mercury News review of August 2, 2018 show)

"Belatedly inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2017, an honor that was long overdue, the group quickly launched into more familiar territory with Evil Woman, All Over The World and Showdown."
Daniel Gluskoter (August 3, 2018 - Martinez Tribune review of August 2, 2018 show)

"The hits just kept coming, from Evil Woman, All Over the World, Do Ya, Shine a Little Love and Xanadu to Sweet Talkiní Woman and Donít Bring Me Down."
Leslie Katz (August 3, 2018 - San Francisco Examiner review of August 2, 2018 show)

"Classic hits like Evil Woman, All Over the World, Do Ya and Canít Get It Out of My Head were matched with spectacular video montages and synchronized lighting effects."
Andy J. Gordon (August 8, 2018 - Glide Magazine review of August 4, 2018 show)

"Blasting into the night, Evil Woman embarked the historically monumental adventure into euphoria."
Zena Ballas (August 10, 2018 - 303 Magazine review of August 8, 2018 show)

"The second song of the set was Evil Woman, one of the bandís biggest hits. Folks couldnít clap as enthusiastically for that one as theyíd already filled their hands with their smartphones, steadied and aimed at the band to capture the moment for posterity."
Jesse Sendejas Jr. (August 11, 2018 - Houston Press review of August 10, 2018 show)

"Evil Woman before it demanded both a sharper main vocal and a more pronounced keyboard delivering the radio stapleís honking hook."
Raoul Hernandez (August 15, 2018 - The Austin Chronicle review of August 13, 2018 show)

"'Itís marvelous to be back after all these years,' said Lynne, flashing the first of many double thumbs-ups to the crowd after burning through 1975 chestnut Evil Woman."
Jeff Elbe (August 15, 2018 - Illinois Entertainer review of August 15, 2018 show)

"The song selection was what fans hoped for and expected and no one was disappointed. Evil Woman, an energetic Do Ya, Donít Bring Me Down, and emotional Wild West Hero, a brilliant version of Telephone Line and so many more."

All Over The World (Live 2018 Tour)
"Belatedly inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2017, an honor that was long overdue, the group quickly launched into more familiar territory with Evil Woman, All Over The World and Showdown."
Daniel Gluskoter (August 3, 2018 - Martinez Tribune review of August 2, 2018 show)

"The hits just kept coming, from Evil Woman, All Over the World, Do Ya, Shine a Little Love and Xanadu to Sweet Talkiní Woman and Donít Bring Me Down."
Leslie Katz (August 3, 2018 - San Francisco Examiner review of August 2, 2018 show)

"Only two numbers in the set post-dated 1980ís [including] All Over the World, from the Xanadu soundtrack."
Chris Willman (August 6, 2018 - Variety review of August 5, 2018 show)

"Classic hits like Evil Woman, All Over the World, Do Ya and Canít Get It Out of My Head were matched with spectacular video montages and synchronized lighting effects."
Andy J. Gordon (August 8, 2018 - Glide Magazine review of August 4, 2018 show)

"By the third song, the phones were tucked away to allow for dancing. All Over the World was the first to get people out of their seats and shimmying. The only song from the Xanadu soundtrack to appear in the set, it was a favorite for fans of the cult classic and gave the night a little disco pop."
Jesse Sendejas Jr. (August 11, 2018 - Houston Press review of August 10, 2018 show)

"Not that Lynneís falsetto on All Over the World in the third spot didnít thrill"
Raoul Hernandez (August 15, 2018 - The Austin Chronicle review of August 13, 2018 show)

"Bassist Lee Pomeroy danced and clowned while the group diverted into disco territory with All Over the World and the hand-clapping Shine a Little Love."
Jeff Elbe (August 15, 2018 - Illinois Entertainer review of August 15, 2018 show)

Dan Hyman (August 16, 2018 - Chicago Tribune review of August 15, 2018 show)

Showdown (Live 2018 Tour)
"As the evening progressed, and the setlist continued through such gems as Showdown and Liviní Thing, it was hard not to marvel at how innovative this music was for its era. The band was just so far ahead of its time in the í70s and í80s, peddling a heady mix of rock, pop and classical that was both artsy and radio friendly."
Jim Harrington (August 3, 2018 - The Mercury News review of August 2, 2018 show)

"Belatedly inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2017, an honor that was long overdue, the group quickly launched into more familiar territory with Evil Woman, All Over The World and Showdown."
Daniel Gluskoter (August 3, 2018 - Martinez Tribune review of August 2, 2018 show)

"From [All Over The World], Lynne moved down the line to Showdown, which allowed him to boast some blues guitar acumen."
Jesse Sendejas Jr. (August 11, 2018 - Houston Press review of August 10, 2018 show)

"To that end, whether on the precise and methodical string-laden opener Standing in the Rain [sic] or the comparably loose, Marvin Gaye-esque R&B strut of Showdown, there was a whimsical-but-grounded precision at play."

Do Ya (Live 2018 Tour)
"The night was, of course, rich with nostalgia for the í70s and í80s, as thousands of fans with grey hair ó or, in my case, no hair ó sang along with gusto to such blasts from the past as Rockaria! and Do Ya, which was originally recorded by Lynneís earlier band, The Move."
Jim Harrington (August 3, 2018 - The Mercury News review of August 2, 2018 show)

"[ELO performed] Do Ya from 1976ís A New World Record, a tune originally recorded in 1972 by Lynneís previous band 'The Move,'"

"The hits just kept coming, from Evil Woman, All Over the World, Do Ya, Shine a Little Love and Xanadu to Sweet Talkiní Woman and Donít Bring Me Down."
Leslie Katz (August 3, 2018 - San Francisco Examiner review of August 2, 2018 show)

"The evening also included covers of the Move's Lynne-penned Do Ya and Chuck Berry's Roll Over Beethoven, both of which were hits for ELO..."
Dave Lifton (August 3, 2018 - Ultimate Classic Rock review of August 2, 2018 show)

"One swell addition to the set since then, besides Handle With Care: Do Ya, the outright rocker from Lynneís original band, the Move, that got revived as an ELO hit years later. (Todd Rundgrenís Utopia, who covered the song between the Move and ELO versions, have also been reviving their version on tour; itís a good year to be alive if you live for that riff.) The addition serves as a nice reminder of Lynneís less remarked-upon side, as a guitar hero, something he only let seep out from around the edges in ELO. "
Chris Willman (August 6, 2018 - Variety review of August 5, 2018 show)

When I Was A Boy (Live 2018 Tour)
"Yet, Lynne and company also took time to showcase what theyíve been up too more recently, performing When I Was a Boy from the bandís most recent (and 13th overall) studio full-length, 2015ís Alone in the Universe. Itís a strong offering, which finds Lynne at his most McCartney-like to date ó which is really saying something for an artist who has been channeling the Fab Four for basically his whole career."
Jim Harrington (August 3, 2018 - The Mercury News review of August 2, 2018 show)

"[Do Ya] was followed by When I Was a Boy from 2015ís Alive In The Universe [sic], their 13th and most recent studio album."
Daniel Gluskoter (August 3, 2018 - Martinez Tribune review of August 2, 2018 show)

"Lynneís evocative new (2015) tune When I Was a Boy, a lovely piano ballad, sounded like vintage Beatles (Lynne has famously collaborated with them all except John Lennon)..."
Leslie Katz (August 3, 2018 - San Francisco Examiner review of August 2, 2018 show)

"The 20-song set list (which you can see below) was heavy on hits and included only one song from the 2015 album, Alone in the Universe -- When I Was a Boy."
Dave Lifton (August 3, 2018 - Ultimate Classic Rock review of August 2, 2018 show)

"One [of the post-dated 1980ís songs] was the wistful When I Was a Boy, the sole inclusion from the pair of 21st century albums that have found Lynne picking up the ELO name again."
Chris Willman (August 6, 2018 - Variety review of August 5, 2018 show)

"The song that captured the essence of the evening had been played about an hour earlier [When I Was A Boy]. When I Was a Boy must be one of the greatest songs written about how it feels to love music. Itís a sweet throwback tune that allows Lynne, a music legend, to recall how it all started. In the day and age of D.I.Y. music, where independent artists lean on Bandcamp and everyone with a video recording device can upload their performances to YouTube, one might consider the quaintness of the song passť. It isn't. No matter how a musician finds an audience, the trek begins with the dream Lynne sings about in the poignant song, the dream that steers one away from chores or workaday business to seek musical greatness. It nearly brought a tear to these eyes hearing it live and personally knowing so many musicians who are pursuing the dream. It was as close to gospel as one can get at a good, old-fashioned rock Ďní roll extravaganza. "
Jesse Sendejas Jr. (August 11, 2018 - Houston Press review of August 10, 2018 show)

"[Alone in the Universe] opener When I Was a Boy rang sixth in an 18-song, 85-minute main set at the American Airlines Arena to start the week. Every seat in every last row kissing the arena ceiling appeared occupied."
Raoul Hernandez (August 15, 2018 - The Austin Chronicle review of August 13, 2018 show)

"The same [nostalgia] mood inhabited When I Was a Boy from 2015ís Alone in the Universe album."
Jeff Elbe (August 15, 2018 - Illinois Entertainer review of August 15, 2018 show)

"[Also played was] When I Was A Boy, the sole inclusion on Wednesday from the two albums heís released this century under the ELO moniker ó would play better in a theater than via an arenaís fuzzy public announcement system."

"Violinist Langley had a thrilling solo at the start of Liviní Thing..."
Leslie Katz (August 3, 2018 - San Francisco Examiner review of August 2, 2018 show)

"It felt a little anticlimactic to hear [Livin' Thing] early in the set, but it was even more disappointing not to hear [Strange Magic] at all."
Lina Lecaro (August 7, 2018 - LA Weekly review of August 4 & 5, 2018 shows)

"For Liviní Thing, violinist Rosie Langley was under a spotlight for the dramatic opening solo."
Andy J. Gordon (August 8, 2018 - Glide Magazine review of August 4, 2018 show)

"The string section sounded electronically augmented, but violinist Rosie Langley centerstage during Liviní Thing kicked up some vintage moon dust."
Raoul Hernandez (August 15, 2018 - The Austin Chronicle review of August 13, 2018 show)

Jeff Elbe (August 15, 2018 - Illinois Entertainer review of August 15, 2018 show)

Handle With Care (Live 2018 Tour)
"The vocalist-guitarist also turned the spotlight on his other band, the Traveling Wilburys, crooning through a spot-on take of Handle With Care while images of his fellow Wilburys ó Bob Dylan, George Harrison, Roy Orbison and Tom Petty ó were shown on the screens at the back of the stage."
Jim Harrington (August 3, 2018 - The Mercury News review of August 2, 2018 show)

"Next up, Liviní Thing and Rockaria! from New World Record [sic] sandwiched a priceless rendition of The Wilburys Handle With Care as images of the the elite bands members flashed on the screens behind the the stage. If ever there was a true supergroup, The Wilburys were it. Also produced by Lynne, the far too short-lived quintet only released two albums prior to Orbisonís untimely death from a heart attack in 1988 at the age of 52."
Daniel Gluskoter (August 3, 2018 - Martinez Tribune review of August 2, 2018 show)

"Singer Hornal joyously did the Roy Orbison part in Handle With Care, the tune by the Traveling Wilburys, which Lynne called my other group.' In the background, a video flashing images of the Wilburys (Orbison, Bob Dylan, Tom Petty, George Harrison) alternated with groovy psychedelic designs."
Leslie Katz (August 3, 2018 - San Francisco Examiner review of August 2, 2018 show)

"The evening also included... Handle With Care, a song by Lynne's '80s supergroup the Traveling Wilburys."
Dave Lifton (August 3, 2018 - Ultimate Classic Rock review of August 2, 2018 show)

"The other was a song 'from my other band,' the Traveling Wilburysí Handle With Care, which had Lynne handling most of the vocals that were dispersed among the supergroup on the verses, but leaving the chorus to backing vocalist Iain Hornal. Lynne, being a smart man, knows he can fill in for George Harrison, Tom Petty and Bob Dylan but not for Roy Orbison. The song was a reminder that Lynne had a rich musical life in the years he abandoned the ELO brand and even making solo albums, though the real testament to that was in the pre-show PA selections, which consisted of tracks Lynne worked on as a super-producer after switching careers."
Chris Willman (August 6, 2018 - Variety review of August 5, 2018 show)

"The Forum did get another very special number Lynne didn't do during his last L.A. dates: a rollicking rendition of Handle With Care by 'his other band,' as he called it, The Traveling Wilburys. Just to remind everyone how epic that lineup was, the number featured video footage of members George Harrison, Bob Dylan, Tom Petty and Roy Orbison singing along. The fact that only Lynne and Dylan are still alive made for a bittersweet moment in the show, but it was also a reminder that our rock gods must be appreciated while they still have the desire to share."
Lina Lecaro (August 7, 2018 - LA Weekly review of August 4 & 5, 2018 shows)

"Handle With Care, a Traveling Wilburys classic that Lynne introduced as 'a little song by another group I was in' came next. While the band played the crowd favorite, the video wall showed images of Wilburys bandmates Tom Petty, George Harrison, Roy Orbison and Bob Dylan."
Andy J. Gordon (August 8, 2018 - Glide Magazine review of August 4, 2018 show)

"ELO made every liviní thing hit home in the cosmos with classics such as Canít Get It Out Of My Head, Sweet Talkiní Woman, Turn to Stone, 10538 Overture, Shine A Little Love and threw it back to Handle With Care from his glorified Traveling Wilburys moments."
Zena Ballas (August 10, 2018 - 303 Magazine review of August 8, 2018 show)

"Heís a member of The Traveling Wilburys, so we got Handle With Care, to recall that period."
Jesse Sendejas Jr. (August 11, 2018 - Houston Press review of August 10, 2018 show)

"'Now weíre gonna do one by my other group, which is called the Traveling Wilburys,' said Lynne, introducing the jangling Handle With Care. As screens behind the stage showed footage of the band, cheers erupted at the sight of dearly departed Tom Petty and beloved Beatle George Harrison."
Jeff Elbe (August 15, 2018 - Illinois Entertainer review of August 15, 2018 show)

"He performed... a performance of a song 'from [his] other band,' The Traveling Wilburys. The reaction to Handle With Care was nothing short of explosive and the performance was astounding, complete with videos of his bandmates on the screens behind. [..] A word about Lynneís ELO. His band was remarkable, especially Iain Hornal, who provided excellent vocals and a surprisingly faithful performance of Roy Orbison during Handle With Care. But the band as a whole was tight and provided the perfect "

Jim Harrington (August 3, 2018 - The Mercury News review of August 2, 2018 show)

"Their dreamy first US top 10 single, 1974ís Canít Get It Out of My Head proceeded a performance of the first single they ever released, the hard-rocking orchestrated psychedelic gem 10358 Overture from their self-titled debut album."

"Lynneís familiar voice took the Ď70s nostalgia of ballads like the melancholy Telephone Line and winsome daydream Canít Get it Out of My Head and made it seem timeless instead."

Leslie Katz (August 3, 2018 - San Francisco Examiner review of August 2, 2018 show)

"One transition in particular in the setlist nicely pointed up the breadth that Lynne managed to cover in the Ď70s with ELO. It was probably just coincidence that he juxtaposed two such opposite songs, but it was a kick hearing the ensemble segue from the debut albumís 10538 Overture to 1979ís Shine a Little Love. The former number belied Electric Light Orchestraís original intent, which was basically to turn the cello-laden outro of the Beatlesí I Am the Walrus into a whole ethos, for an album ó or three."

Zena Ballas (August 10, 2018 - 303 Magazine review of August 8, 2018 show)

"The famous Electric Light Orchestra jukebox spaceship descended upon the Chicago area for the first time in 37 years on Wednesday, when Jeff Lynne brought his innovative fusion of rock, pop and classical elements to Rosemont. Generations of fans packed Allstate Arena to capacity, ranging from septuagenarians who knew every word of 10538 Overture from ELOís 1972 debut to kids who discovered Mr. Blue Sky alongside dancing baby Groot in last yearís Guardians of the Galaxy film."
Jeff Elbe (August 15, 2018 - Illinois Entertainer review of August 15, 2018 show)

"Even near the end of the cello-drenched 10538 Overture, as Lynne took center stage flanked by three guitarists near the songís propulsive conclusion, what might otherwise have felt like a loose, extravagant rock star moment for other musicians of his ilk instead played as well-rehearsed and exacting, if not a bit anti-climatic."
Dan Hyman (August 16, 2018 - Chicago Tribune review of August 15, 2018 show)

"There were some surprises, 10538 Orchestra (their first single, a hit only in the U.K) and Xanadu, a song written by Lynne but originally released by Olivia Newton John. Both of these were welcome additions and they both came off perfectly."

Xanadu (Live 2018 Tour)

Jim Harrington (August 3, 2018 - The Mercury News review of August 2, 2018 show)

"The last third of the show was simply magical, as the group rolled out one smash after another, rocking and rolling through the likes of Sweet Talkiní Woman, Turn to Stone and, perhaps best of all, Donít Bring Me Down."
Jim Harrington (August 3, 2018 - The Mercury News review of August 2, 2018 show)

"The group John Lennon once referred to as 'Sons of the Beatles' were amazingly able to amp it up to yet another level as Sweet Talkiní Woman, Telephone Line, Donít Bring Me Down, Turn to Stone and Mr Blue Sky brought the all too brief set to a close."
Daniel Gluskoter (August 3, 2018 - Martinez Tribune review of August 2, 2018 show)

"The hits just kept coming, from Evil Woman, All Over the World, Do Ya, Shine a Little Love and Xanadu to Sweet Talkiní Woman and Donít Bring Me Down."
Leslie Katz (August 3, 2018 - San Francisco Examiner review of August 2, 2018 show)

"For Sweet Talkiní Woman pianist Marcus Byrne used a voice box for the title verse."
Andy J. Gordon (August 8, 2018 - Glide Magazine review of August 4, 2018 show)

"ELO made every liviní thing hit home in the cosmos with classics such as Canít Get It Out Of My Head, Sweet Talkiní Woman, Turn to Stone, 10538 Overture, Shine A Little Love and threw it back to Handle With Care from his glorified Traveling Wilburys moments."
Zena Ballas (August 10, 2018 - 303 Magazine review of August 8, 2018 show)

"Pianist Marcus Byrne propelled the perfect pop of Sweet Talkiní Woman, and sang the familiar vocoder parts in synthesized robotic voice."
Jeff Elbe (August 15, 2018 - Illinois Entertainer review of August 15, 2018 show)

Telephone Line (Live 2018 Tour)
"The set lists for the two shows, spaced 37 years apart, shared a dozen tunes ó including, of course, such classics as Telephone Line and Mr. Blue Sky. (No, we werenít there at the earlier show, but we did find the information about it on the always helpful setlist.fm site.)"
Jim Harrington (August 3, 2018 - The Mercury News review of August 2, 2018 show)

"The group John Lennon once referred to as 'Sons of the Beatles' were amazingly able to amp it up to yet another level as Sweet Talkiní Woman, Telephone Line, Donít Bring Me Down, Turn to Stone and Mr Blue Sky brought the all too brief set to a close."
Daniel Gluskoter (August 3, 2018 - Martinez Tribune review of August 2, 2018 show)

"Things slowed down for Canít Get It Out of My Head and Telephone Line, with excellent ringing effects..."
Leslie Katz (August 3, 2018 - San Francisco Examiner review of August 2, 2018 show)

"On the bittersweet ballad Telephone Line, the audience could clearly be heard singing along."
Andy J. Gordon (August 8, 2018 - Glide Magazine review of August 4, 2018 show)

"Ballads fared no better, Canít Get It Out of My Head falling flat behind Lynne and Telephone Line missing that pre-cellular zing of the original."
Raoul Hernandez (August 15, 2018 - The Austin Chronicle review of August 13, 2018 show)

"Lynneís familiar voice took the Ď70s nostalgia of ballads like the melancholy Telephone Line and winsome daydream Canít Get it Out of My Head and made it seem timeless instead."
Jeff Elbe (August 15, 2018 - Illinois Entertainer review of August 15, 2018 show)

"The song selection was what fans hoped for and expected and no one was disappointed. Evil Woman, an energetic Do Ya, Donít Bring Me Down, and emotional Wild West Hero, a brilliant version of Telephone Line and so many more."
Aaron Badgley (August 19, 2018 - Spill magazine review of August 18, 2018 show)

"[We got songs] from Telephone Line to Rockaria! to Donít Bring Me Down, Turn to Stone and Mr. Blue Sky, plus a couple hits Iíd forgotten about (Wild West Hero, the disco-era Shine A Little Love)."
Brooklyn Vegan (August 22, 2018 - Spill magazine review of August 21, 2018 show)

Don't Bring Me Down (Live 2018 Tour)
"The last third of the show was simply magical, as the group rolled out one smash after another, rocking and rolling through the likes of Sweet Talkiní Woman, Turn to Stone and, perhaps best of all, Donít Bring Me Down. Donít bring me down? Not a chance. Not on this night. Not when Jeff Lynneís ELO are kicking off their first North American tour in over 35 years in Oakland."
Jim Harrington (August 3, 2018 - The Mercury News review of August 2, 2018 show)

"The hits just kept coming, from Evil Woman, All Over the World, Do Ya, Shine a Little Love and Xanadu to Sweet Talkiní Woman and Donít Bring Me Down."
Leslie Katz (August 3, 2018 - San Francisco Examiner review of August 2, 2018 show)

"Donít Bring Me Down, from the 1979 album Discovery, was their biggest hit in the U.S. and may have drawn the loudest applause."
Andy J. Gordon (August 8, 2018 - Glide Magazine review of August 4, 2018 show)

"Riff rocket Do Ya thudded damp and moldy, later outdone by Donít Bring Me Down managing all the stomp and holler of the Teletubbies. "
Raoul Hernandez (August 15, 2018 - The Austin Chronicle review of August 13, 2018 show)

"Drummer Donovan Hepburn kept the beat hard and heavy as the crowd sang along to Donít Bring Me Down."
Jeff Elbe (August 15, 2018 - Illinois Entertainer review of August 15, 2018 show)

Turn To Stone (Live 2018 Tour)
"The last third of the show was simply magical, as the group rolled out one smash after another, rocking and rolling through the likes of Sweet Talkiní Woman, Turn to Stone and, perhaps best of all, Donít Bring Me Down."

Daniel Gluskoter (August 3, 2018 - Martinez Tribune review of August 2, 2018 show)

"[After slower songs, the band] pumped up again for Turn to Stone and Mr. Blue Sky."
Leslie Katz (August 3, 2018 - San Francisco Examiner review of August 2, 2018 show)

"That song [Don't Bring Me Down] and Turn to Stone which followed it turned into more audience sing alongs."
Andy J. Gordon (August 8, 2018 - Glide Magazine review of August 4, 2018 show)

"ELO made every liviní thing hit home in the cosmos with classics such as Canít Get It Out Of My Head, Sweet Talkiní Woman, Turn to Stone, 10538 Overture, Shine A Little Love and threw it back to Handle With Care from his glorified Traveling Wilburys moments."
Zena Ballas (August 10, 2018 - 303 Magazine review of August 8, 2018 show)

"Third from the end, only Turn to Stone truly crackled in the same spirit as its master take. ELO sounded crisp, catchy, and as inevitable as the asteroid belt throwing rocks on the screen behind the band."
Raoul Hernandez (August 15, 2018 - The Austin Chronicle review of August 13, 2018 show)

"Keyboardist Steve Turner dazzled during Turn to Stone."
Jeff Elbe (August 15, 2018 - Illinois Entertainer review of August 15, 2018 show)

"[After slower songs, the band] pumped up again for Turn to Stone and Mr. Blue Sky."
Leslie Katz (August 3, 2018 - San Francisco Examiner review of August 2, 2018 show)

"[Standin' In The Rain] also makes for a good bookend to Mr. Blue Sky, which closes the main set with a similarly symphonic coda, although that oneís smash status (and endless numbers of synch licenses in the 2010s ó go figure) make it a natural set-ender with or without the added bit of album-version pomp."
Chris Willman (August 6, 2018 - Variety review of August 5, 2018 show)

"Mr. Blue Sky was the final song of the set before the band left the stage to thunderous applause."
Andy J. Gordon (August 8, 2018 - Glide Magazine review of August 4, 2018 show)

"[The band] almost ended the evening with one of his most profound songs Mr. Blue Sky, which is where it should have landed. After a space-shaking standing ovation, ELO returned to the stage to perform Roll Over Beethoven which sealed the nightís exploration through time."
Zena Ballas (August 10, 2018 - 303 Magazine review of August 8, 2018 show)

"Mr. Blue Sky, which is one both my kids love (and loved long before it got the Marvel treatment in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2). Hearing it live from Jeff Lynne was exceptional and I hope I hear it live again later this year when Lily Allen (who does a wonderful rendition) makes her own long-awaited return to Houston."
Jesse Sendejas Jr. (August 11, 2018 - Houston Press review of August 10, 2018 show)

"The famous Electric Light Orchestra jukebox spaceship descended upon the Chicago area for the first time in 37 years on Wednesday, when Jeff Lynne brought his innovative fusion of rock, pop and classical elements to Rosemont. Generations of fans packed Allstate Arena to capacity, ranging from septuagenarians who knew every word of 10538 Overture from ELOís 1972 debut to kids who discovered Mr. Blue Sky alongside dancing baby Groot in last yearís Guardians of the Galaxy film. [...] The show was bookended with tracks from side three of 1977 double-LP Out of the Blue, and its 'Concerto for a Rainy Day.' Standiní in the Rain began the show with the orchestral flourish of Lynneís string section and crashing thunder, before launching into a driving rock groove. At the other end of the concert, Mr. Blue Sky brought the main set to its thrilling conclusion with celebratory high spirit."
Jeff Elbe (August 15, 2018 - Illinois Entertainer review of August 15, 2018 show)

"The night ended with Mr Blue Sky, which, for me, was one of many highlights. The complicated vocal arrangements came off perfectly and it was one of those moments in life when one has to pause to make sure it is really happening. And then, all too soon, the concert was over."
Aaron Badgley (August 19, 2018 - Spill magazine review of August 18, 2018 show)

Roll Over Beethoven (Live 2018 Tour)
"Returning swiftly to the stage for a rollicking nine minute version of Chuck Berryís Roll Over Beethoven, ELOís traditional encore number, Lynne and his tight hand picked ensemble brought the curtain down on a precious evening that highlighted how innovative and special his talents are. He seamlessly surrounded himself with an elite group of musicians that had no problem replicating the past."
Daniel Gluskoter (August 3, 2018 - Martinez Tribune review of August 2, 2018 show)

"For the encore, the band did its souped-up version of Chuck Berryís Roll Over Beethoven beginning with the famed strains of Beethovenís Fifth Symphony."
Leslie Katz (August 3, 2018 - San Francisco Examiner review of August 2, 2018 show)

"The evening also included covers of the Move's Lynne-penned Do Ya and Chuck Berry's Roll Over Beethoven, both of which were hits for ELO..."
Dave Lifton (August 3, 2018 - Ultimate Classic Rock review of August 2, 2018 show)

"Hearing him peel off his Chuck Berry licks in the traditional closer, Roll Over Beethoven, was a joyful reminder of the harder-rock path not taken, and something that made for a heck of an accent as he spent that decade retraining his attention on strings."
Chris Willman (August 6, 2018 - Variety review of August 5, 2018 show)

"They were only gone for a few minutes and once all the band members returned to the stage, they launched into a wild version of Chuck Berryís 1956 hit single Roll Over Beethoven that ELO rerecorded and released on the album ELO 2 in 1973. The entire band blasted away and Lynne, who had played only rhythm guitar for the entire show, played an electrifying solo reminiscent of Berry."
Andy J. Gordon (August 8, 2018 - Glide Magazine review of August 4, 2018 show)

"[The band] almost ended the evening with one of his most profound songs Mr. Blue Sky, which is where it should have landed. After a space-shaking standing ovation, ELO returned to the stage to perform Roll Over Beethoven which sealed the nightís exploration through time."
Zena Ballas (August 10, 2018 - 303 Magazine review of August 8, 2018 show)

"Lynne closed the night with a single encore song, Chuck Berryís Roll Over Beethoven, which got an appropriate string-y intro courtesy of the namesakeís famous Fifth and a trio of players on cello and violin. By then, fans were doing the Twist like they did last summer (and, the many summers before that). Some even emulated Berryís famous duck walk during the shut-it-down closer. But, the song that captured the essence of the evening had been played about an hour earlier [When I Was A Boy]."
Jesse Sendejas Jr. (August 11, 2018 - Houston Press review of August 10, 2018 show)

"Sole encore Roll Over Beethoven rocked AARP-like, just like the senior societyís invite in my mail that same morning."
Raoul Hernandez (August 15, 2018 - The Austin Chronicle review of August 13, 2018 show)

"Lynne took his share of tasty solos on his trademark black Gibson Les Paul, but gave the spotlight to Milton McDonaldís hot slide guitar during a rowdy encore of Chuck Berryís Roll Over Beethoven."
Jeff Elbe (August 15, 2018 - Illinois Entertainer review of August 15, 2018 show)

"Of course there was an encore (a rousing, energetic and rocking Roll Over Beethoven), and then that was it. Over. Emotion spent, exhaustion and a night full of memories."
Aaron Badgley (August 19, 2018 - Spill magazine review of August 18, 2018 show)
