In the early 1970s, Jeff Lynne formed the Electric Light Orchestra (ELO), a symphonic rock band that became one of the most popular and successful groups of the era. Their hits include “Can’t Get It Out of My Head,” “Evil Woman,” “Livin’ Thing,” and “Don’t Bring Me Down.”
In June 2014, ELO played a triumphant show in London’s Hyde Park, the band’s first UK performance in over 30 years. The concert was captured on film and released as a live album and DVD in 2015.
The Hyde Park show features many of ELO’s classic songs, as well as a few new tracks from the band’s latest album, Alone in the Universe. Lynne and his bandmates deliver a powerful performance, with soaring vocals and lush orchestral arrangements.
The Hyde Park show is a must-see for fans of ELO or classic rock in general. It’s an excellent overview of the band’s career, featuring both new and old songs. The DVD also includes bonus footage of the band rehearsing for the show.
If you’re a fan of ELO, or just classic rock in general, then you need to check out Jeff Lynne’s ELO: Live in Hyde Park. It’s a great concert film and a must-have for any fan of the band.
