Jeff Lynne Hyde Park Show Heads To DVD

by Roger Wink, VVN Music on July 1, 2015

One of the highlights of the 2014 festival season was Jeff Lynne returning to the concert stage with his new version of ELO (Electric Light Orchestra) at Radio 2 Live in Hyde Park, London.

It was the first full show for Lynne in 28 years and he showed he wasn’t rusty at all, recreating sixteen ELO classics and one from his side project, The Traveling Wilburys. Jeff was overwhelmed by the response, saying “It seemed like the entire 50,000 were singing and clapping along, which carried on for the whole night. The Hyde Park concert turned out to be one of the most memorable shows ever for me.”

At the time, Lynne said that, if all went well, he would seriously consider a world tour but that hasn’t transpired, so far. What he is moving forward with is a new DVD and Blu-Ray release of the Hyde Park show, promising to keep the sound true to that evening. “It’s important to me that viewers experience the Hyde Park show exactly as it was performed on the night…in stereo.”

Look for Live at Hyde Park on September 11 via Eagle Rock Entertainment.

The track list:
All Over The World
Evil Woman
Ma-Ma-Ma Belle
Showdown
Livin’ Thing
Strange Magic
10538 Overture
Can’t Get It Out Of My Head
Sweet Talkin’ Woman
Turn To Stone
Steppin’ Out

Electric Light Orchestra Play London REVIEW

Jeff Lynne wasn’t really planning to tour the Electric Light Orchestra again until Chris Evans persuaded and badgered him into headlining the Radio 2 Hyde Park gig in 2014 almost 30 years after they had last toured. I’m sure he can afford to buy his own, but a lot of people owe Evans a pint for that (but maybe not after they’ve shelled out £5.50 each for one here!, come on Wembley, be fair!!).
