DO YA? WANT SOME ELO?
It was a truly magical night..it had been 40 years to the day that they had played MSG...every song you wanted to hear! The two backup singers were terrific and the strings were exceptional..run..don’t walk to see ELO! Loved my seats in section 212 row 4..perfect view..

JEFF LYNNE'S ELO IN LA (NIGHT 2)
When I was 18, I saw ELO in Philadelphia (1981). That show was amazing but nothing compared to this second LA show. They didn't miss a single note. It should tell you something about Jeff Lynne that he's comfortable enough to surround himself with amazing musical talent and then showcase that talent (consider how many solos). To do what Jeff Lynne does, especially for someone so clearly uncomfortable with being the center of attention, speaks volumes about the man. I don't impress easily, but it's hard not to watch this band perform and remember you aren't reliving one of the coolest moments of your younger years. Thank you for your music, Jeff.

BRINGING DOWN THE HOUSE
It was awesome! The 70's revisited at the Scotia Bank Arena in Toronto. One of the best concerts we have ever seen. Jeff Lynne's performance was wonderful and his band amazing. The sound system was outstanding and each song brought renewed cheers from the appreciative audience. We loved it. Definitely recommended for families.

SIMPLY THE BEST
What other band (ever) can play one hit dominated by electric guitar (Do Ya), followed by a keyboard dominated song (can't get it out of my head) followed by a violin dominated piece (livin thing) followed by a cello dominated song (turn to stone) and ends with everything blasting away (Roll over beethoven). The answer is there is no other band like them. I was in Detroit last night and headed to Toronto Saturday. At 70 years old this will probably be our last chance to see Jeff lynne.

Saw him 41 years ago, still fantastic!

I read through the previous posts before writing mine and all I can say is that they are all spot on! I was with my 20-something kids as well and while my memories of when I first heard these songs quickly came to mind (and also brought a few tears), their love for the music is more recent (again thanks to Classic radio and Spotify) and Jeff Lynne and ELO will remain a rock legacy through them and their children. His music was and is the classic music of our generation, so Roll over Beethoven was an apt closing number. If you have tickets to future concerts you should be in for a treat. Enjoy the 90 minute ride and soak in the memories. To assist with this site's mandate, we would recommend Aroma, Indian Experience on King St. west and the Courtyard by Marriott at College and Yonge as a reasonably-priced and decent hotel to stay at.

Always wish more original members would have been with Jeff but even so Sold Out show @ AAC was amazing -fantistic songs , Incredible sound -I can now pass on from this world fulfilling a dream of seeing Jeff performing this historical life changing music !
