Jeff Lynne delivered some sad news. It’s really over

Jeff Lynne’s ELO announced its final farewell tour. Tour “The Over and Out Tour” that’s a total of 27 dates in the United States, including: in New York, Chicago or Seattle. He is scheduled to play his last concert on October 25 in Los Angeles, California. The organizer of the concerts is the Live Nation agency.

Jeff Lynne (check!) is known as one of the most creative creators in the history of music – he became famous as an author, but also as a producer. His band has sold approximately 50 million records around the world, and last year he was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame, and in 2017, the Electric Light Orchestra group was admitted to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Lynne’s concerts are famous for their grand scale, and during them he presents a mixture of rock and pop that has been characteristic of their sound for years.

“The final tour stops in the USA, it will be amazing! Join Jeff Lynne’s during a historic evening, live,” announces the artist.

Jeff Lynne, who will turn 77 this year, has worked closely over the years with, among others, With The Beatles, Bryan Adams Whether George Harrisonhe was also a member of the supergroup The Traveling Wilburyswhich included: Harrison, Bob Dylan, Roy Orbison and Tom Petty.

In 2019, Jeff Lynne’s ELO released their last album: “From Out of Nowhere”, which was to be promoted by a concert tour around Europe. On May 15, 2020, the artist announced on social media that the concerts were canceled due to the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic. The musician was to perform, among others: in Stockholm, Berlin, Amsterdam, London and Dublin.

Now American fans are happy that the rock star decided to end his career in their country. “See you”; “Best concert ever, I’ll go again!”; “Cincinnati, present. So excited!”

English fans have a different opinion about where the band comes from – especially after the last tour, which did not take place. “Sad if this is your last tour. Really, as a British icon, do you want it to end there?” – writes one of the fans. “I’m happy on behalf of the American fans, but I feel cheated and sad that it’s only the USA… I was also counting on new music,” adds another ELO fan.

However, they hope that the word “final” is just a marketing trick, and Lynne will be able to say goodbye to her loyal audience also in Europe. Polish fans would certainly count on this as well – Jeff Lynne has never performed in our country before.
