This is the phenomenal concert that gave birth to Jeff Lynne's renewed enthusiasm to perform ELO's hits in concert. Thanks to Jeff's collaborstion with an amazing music director, the band achieves perfect recreations of its recorded songs in concert for the first time ever. SCIENCE! Not only have previous technical barriers been overcome, this debut of the "new and improved" Electric Light Orchestra at London's Hyde Park soars to musical heights like never before as the band is joined by the BBC Orchestra and Chorus, original ELO band member Richard Tandy on keyboards and electronic vocals, and Chereene Allen, an amazing violin soloist. This concert is responsible for the subsequent Wembley Or Bust concert (worth buying for the set list, which is different from Hyde Park) and the group's current USA TOUR that began in 2018 and will continue in 2019.
