ELO UPLIFTING TO THE HEAVENS
Just a tremendous people experience. People from all walks of life and ages; literally 8 to 80 saw Jeff Lynne's ELO put on a tremendous show at Newark's Pru Center. The performance was so uplifting that it's hard to find the words that can explain the feelings that this show evoked. It's almost sad in a way that when one reflects upon the majesty of this show that almost all that comes after will pale in comparison. Especially after leaving a 2 plus hour sensory explosion and returning to our mortal lives. Thank God for Jeff Lynne and his musical genius that make this reviewer forever suspended in ecstasy and wanting more.

JEFF LYNNE'S ELO CONCERT AT PRUDENTIAL CENTER, NEWARK, NJ
I have been many concerts in my life and I have to say that this was the best live rock concert I've ever attended. In terns of the sound quality, visuals and overall band performance, the show was absolutely fantastic. The sound engineering was impeccable, even better than the original studio recordings (in my opinion), if that's even possible. This is quite unusual, but no surprise coming from Jeff Lynne, who is renowned for making sure every note and fill of his intricately beautiful song arrangements are heard by every audience member - and they were! The lighting effects, backdrop animation and visual choreography were absolutely stunning, making the experience an absolute delight in every way. The songs are, of course, all classics, and the 12-piece band's performance was note perfect. It's simply a joyous experience to witness ELO live in 2019 and Jeff Lynne and his musical director, Mike Stevens, know exactly what it means to give their live audience their money's worth (and more). Given this chance to experience this wonderful concert, I will have to say that my wife and I are willing to attend Jeff Lynne's ELO live every time they come through our local area, so long as Jeff and company are willing to tour. Thanks Jeff and company! Keep on going!

TORONTO SHOW WAS FANTASTIC!
We watched Jeff Lynne's - ELO special from Wembley Stadium and you could tell the whole band was jacked up to play there......and I was extremely happy to see & get the same energizing effort from everyone. The sound was awesome, the light show was fantastic and it was hit after hit from their playlist! We have been to many concerts over the years and unlike a lot of aging performers (I am dating myself too with that statement) that can't really get to the notes that they once could... Jeff Lynne's voice carried throughout the arena like he was in studio....just fantastic! Another scratch off the bucket list!! Cheers

AS INCREDIBLE NOW AS WHEN I SAW THEM IN 1978!
That sound! What an electrifying concert! From one hit to the next, they never missed a beat. With changes to the band personnel you could be forgiven to thinking that the band would sound very different, but it doesn’t. Jeff has some hugely talented musician in support. Loved the show and the energy in the crowd. It was a fantastic night.

THE SHOW WAS FANTASTIC!!
I saw ELO in the 70's at Maple Leaf gardens concert bowl. Have always been a huge fan. I had such a wonderful time listening to Jeff's music. I was over the top excited and had an amazing time!! He's so talented.

I first heard ELO as a teenager when El Dorado was released. I immediately fell in love with the music. Jeff - you had me at the Overture and when you played it last night I nearly cried for joy! I have loved the music since the 70s and always will. Last night's concert was beyond amazing and unbelievable as it sounds, was even better than the one last August- which was awesome! Jeff please keep touring because we'll keep showing up!
