Take a look at all the smiling faces of the audiences on the current UK tour before making such sweeping statements  :x

I have now been told that they are very good, Serena.

I once attended a gig of Part 2 when Bev was still in the band - it was bloody marvellous - had a great time - just wish they would drop the ELO name completely. Their own music was also superb notwithstanding the awful Honest Men.

Do they also play songs by OrKestra, like the fabulous Dirty Old Town ?

Sadly not - wish they would, though!

Hello:
I?ve seen them in Madrid twice, and their show is full of energy. We sang and danced and it was an electric experience.
Regards...

Just like to agree with alehall. I went to one of their performances in the Canary Islands last week (they played two nights here). I wouldn't class myself as a huge ELO fan so I wasn?t quite sure what to expect but they?re a class act & know how to put on a show. Performance lasted for almost two hours, ending with a superb rendition of "Don?t Bring Me Down". Don?t know where they'll be playing next, but don?t pass up the chance to catch them if they?re playing near you!  8)

The newscanarias had this:

ELO in Auditorium
Tenerife's major concert venue hosts legendary rock band ELO tonight, although the group's most famous member will not be on stage.

Tonight's concert - officially known as ELO II, Former Original Members - by the group that holds the record for filling Wembley Arena (8 consecutive nights) takes place at 9pm in the sea-front Auditorium in Santa Cruz. ELO II, without Jeff Lynne, was formed in 1991 and has toured the world sucessfully on many occasions. The band enjoyed a mini revival after playing with Canadian megastar Celine Dion.

So the confusion about Jeff being in the band has been replaced with Eric's work with Celine?

To be honest, I?d have to say that based on the performance I witnessed last week, Jeff Lynne isn?t missed (no offence to fans of Jeff out there). They also mentioned Eric's participation on Billy Joel's "Uptown Girl" and John Lennon's "Woman" on the night.
