Jeff Lynne Hyde Park Show Heads To DVD

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.

All Over The World
Evil Woman
Ma-Ma-Ma Belle
Livin’ Thing
Strange Magic
