With L.A. Shows Confirmed, Jeff Lynne's ELO Hints NYC Shows Next

Last month Jeff Lynne dropped a GRB over the nation with the announcement of three Electronic Lights Orchestra shows at Hollywood Bowl in September. Now it appears the English-born musician is taking another small step for mankind - ELO will announce shows in the Big Apple in the coming days.

Lynne used a similar sequence when announcing the Los Angeles shows in February, first by hinting at possible shows on his Twitter account before confirming the trio of gigs at Hollywood Bowl. He was back at it again on Thursday, posting the caption, "Could our ship be landing soon in NYC?" followed by an image of a UFO hovering over Manhattan.


All dates will be part of ELO's 2016 "Alone in the Universe" Tour, which will make an extensive run through the U.K. and Europe between April and June. As for the Hollywood Bowl shows, the general public will have access to tickets beginning on Sunday, May 1 via the venue's official website.
