The ELO Experience 2018 tour will included the greatest hits from an extensive and impressive back catalogue spanning over 45 years. Blending rock rhythms with classical influences, ELO also released many classic albums such as 'A New World Record', 'Discovery' and 'Out of the Blue', and many sell out tours which further established them as one of the most important and influential bands ever. The ELO Experience are the world's foremost tribute to The Electric Light Orchestra.
