  JEFF LYNNE'S ELO BOARD LAST TRAIN TO LONDON FOR 'WEMBLEY OR BUST' RELEASE
10th October 2017



elo

After the outstanding demand for live show tickets in 2016 and 2017, Jeff Lynne's ELO have announced Friday 17th November as the release date for the Wembley Stadium show that was recorded on Saturday 24th June 2017.

Titled 'Wembley Or Bust', this is a special release commemorating the Wembley Stadium show and will be available digitally, or physically as a 2 disc audio CD and a 3 LP vinyl package. There are also two Deluxe packages – each including the 2 disc CD set, and the concert film on Standard DVD or Blu-Ray.

With the music produced by Jeff Lynne himself and the visuals directed by Paul Dugdale, the 'Wembley Or Bust' release showcases Jeff and his remarkable musical ensemble filling Wembley Stadium with a rock'n'roll spectacle complete with bells, whistles and spaceships, all in front of a 60,000 capacity crowd. As Jeff says himself:

"It's the best time I ever had in music... it is beyond anything I could have imagined."

More popular than ever, Jeff Lynne's ELO have always been known for their epic live shows and with a distinct style that seamlessly and innovatively blends rock, pop and classical music. The 'Wembley Or Bust' release includes performances of many of the most beloved ELO songs from vintage classics like 'Mr Blue Sky', 'Livin' Thing' and 'Evil Woman' to 'Do Ya' from his days with The Move, 'Handle With Care' which he recorded with the Traveling Wilburys, right through 'When I Was A Boy' from his latest ELO masterpiece, 'Alone In The Universe'.

Lynne is widely regarded as one of the greatest record producers in music history and in addition to his storied career in ELO, he was a co-founder and member of The Travelling Wilburys together with Bob Dylan, Roy Orbison, George Harrison and Tom Petty, who tragically died only a few days ago, as well as a producer and collaborator with some of the biggest names in music including The Beatles, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Joe Walsh and most recently Bryan Adams.

There has been a resurgence in the popularity of Lynne's work with ELO since he headlined the BBC Radio 2 Festival In A Day At Hyde Park back in 2014, which was followed up by the 'Alone In The Universe' album which was released in November 2015 and achieved a Platinum sales award (300,000 copies) before the year was out.

In June 2016, Lynne and his touring band appeared in the legendary Sunday teatime slot for the Glastonbury Festival and they will be heading over to the US in September for a handful of live dates in Los Angeles and New York. After the Glastonbury performance Lynne was presented with a sales award for the compilation release, 'All Over The World - The Very Best Of Electric Light Orchestra', which had broken the one million sales barrier.

The Songwriters Hall Of Fame also elected Lynne for induction at its annual induction and awards gala in New York City earlier this year and his home city of Birmingham have also recently honoured him with the Lord Mayor's Awards, as have the UK music therapy charity Nordoff Robbins with their Silver Clef Award.

WACKEN WINTER NIGHTS IS HEAVY METAL WONDERLAND

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.



Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

Wacken Winter Nights is something not to be missed and you can check out the amazing ticket and accommodation prices right here.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.

MetalTalk recently sat down with Wacken founder and owner Thomas Jensen and that interview will be online next week and it's a fascinating insight into how Wacken originated from nothing to become the world's premiere Heavy Metal event.
