Can't beat a bit of classic E.L.O..always found their Fire On High a bit of a strange track.Regards Tim

Hi,

If you want a preview of some of the new album music, from a special concert, there is a loop being transmitted on Freeview 601/Freesat 981 red button or I player. (Possibly Sky 980/ Virgin 991)

Thanks for that, I've watched it a couple of times and have the new album - which is rather good. :)

:D

Was in work Friday morning so missed the sale as all were sold by the time I got home- tried the "Get me in site" on Ticketmaster and surprise surprise people who had bought tickets that morning were posting them for sale almost three times the price for the cheapest tickets, even though they did not have them in their hands.

Where I tried for tickets was for the Manchester concert- which was the only one I could get too- never mind the money I saved on the tickets I will be able to spend at Chicago. :clap:

Is that the city of Chicago, or the band called Chicago? :)

The City Mike- staying for 7 days 3 at O'Hare so that will make up for not getting to see ELO. Did see Chicago (The group) on a one night appearance at the MGM Grand at Vegas in 2011. Excellent!!!!!

Happy Days

You'll love it Bob, easily the best concert that I've ever been to - get to your seats early as not to miss the support band, they are The Feeling and they're rather good too. :)

The Feeling do 45 minutes, then there's a break for 30 minutes before ELO play for 1 hour 45 - the last time I saw ELO was on the "Time" tour in 1981 and they were on stage for only 50 minutes.

Any questions then just ask. :thumb:

The missus and I saw ELO at the O2 a few weeks ago, stunning, with superb light show and sound. Jeff played all the oldies too as well as 3-4 from the new album. The reception he received was just amazing and that was London - imagine what it must have been like in Birmingham.

The show that we went to at Birmingham was much the same as all of the others apparently - absolutely stunning. :)

Here's a youtube video taken during 3 of the o2 gigs, shame about the geezer with the chrome-dome standing in front at the start though !

It wasn't you Victor, was it? :lol:

Bob, don't watch it - see the Manchester show first. ;)
