The Orchestra Show in Toledo was simply fantastic.  They all sounded great and really had the crowd going with ELO and Orchesta songs!  Damn Hux was good!  Thanks guys for keeping the ELO sound alive!

Give me a break! Jeff Lynne wrote 'em all, and sang em all! A band minus him is a cover band! Richard Tandy was smart enough to steer clear of this trash! And what happened to Kelly G.'s hair? Or is he even still in it? Bev has flown the coup, smart man!!!    Parthenon huxley couldn't hold Melvyn Gale's drinking glass!   Unless Jeff is singing, forget the pretending!  Would it be Satisfaction w/out Mick singing?    Case closed!!!!

So are you opposed to any band covering ELO, or just bands with a few former members covering ELO? I enjoy seeing bands perform ELO tunes and have the chance to hear the music performed live in front of an audience. And if that band happens to have some members that once played in ELO, that's a bonus.

Man, you are easy to please. I should get some guys together , call it C.L.O. (Candle Light Orchestra) and start selling tickets! How many do ya want? To add SOME legitimacy to it, I will try to get ELO's sound guy from the 70's! Is that still good enuf for ya?  A former background vocalist (and ONE violinist) DO NOT constitute any kind of substitute for the real thing!!!

I must agree with you both. First I would have only agreed with the ''guest'' above, but indeed, it IS fun to see ELO-songs stil live performed, but then again I'd rather have the real ELO.

Yeah, I would go to that- I'm sure the sound guy would have some interesting things to say. But if I had to choose between that and seeing Jeff perform live on the same night, of course I would choose the latter.

Absolutely. It's great to hear ELO music in a public place even if it's on the radio or a CD. To have a full band play it, is even better, but again, if there's a chance to see Jeff perform the music, who would turn that down?

Louis Clark summed it up by saying the band _THE ORCHESTRA_ is the best it has sounded in 27 years. I would love to see THE ORCHESTRA in concert. It would be much better than going to see Jeff and the ZOOM robots. I have two choices, I can either watch the ZOOM robots or buy their DVDs or buy another ELO Greatest Hits CD or buy NO REWIND and go and see THE ORCHESTRA. I think the latter would be the most worthwhile thing to do. THE ORCHESTRA can pretty much stand up by itself. Eric and Hux should phase out the older songs and write more new material.. seems fair.

Hey Everybody, all politics aside I went to a show in arlington hts it was real good. I have been a huge fan for awhile. These guys were in elo and they do have an authentic sound. No doubt about it jeff lynn was good but he cannot let go, and he needs to.   Kelly and Mick sound real good and if most of you are true music lovers there is nothing better than an outdoor summer show! Besides they both flew in from England to do the show can't debate that kind of loyalty to fans. Have a good fourh

Whats it like hearing Kelly singing the lead on some of the ole ELO songs?
Are they throwing in any of the ELO II band songs? How was Eric? Good?

With regards to the posts earlier in this topic declaring there is no point in Kelly and Co continuing with their touring because it's not the same. I have seen ELO live on the Time tour in Birmingham...I witnessed ELOp2 on a few occasions and have compared that to what I watched Jeff do DVD in 2001. And I have to say that my opinions of the sound presented by ELOp2 was far closer in atmosphere an feeling to what I witnessed back in the early eighties. The music offered to us by Jeff's backing band for the ill fated Zoom tour was nothing short of weak and passionless. Yes, Jeff is a legend and a genius and has a very unique sound...But ELO were a band, their individual members brought with them their own unique passion for playing those notes which really cannot be duplicated, so hearing them live with ELOp2 or Orchestra for me is a moving experience.
I only hope that one day in the future, Jeff will look to the truth that lies beyond the afterglow and perform...even a one off show...with the old gang. That would be a magical moment...and I guarantee that Bev would come running should that ever happen.
