ELO Play First Show in 28 Years and May Continue

(Radio.com) Electric Light Orchestra, perhaps better known by their simple acronym ELO, returned to the stage for the fist time in 28 years Sunday night (Sept. 14) at BBC Radio 2's Festival In A Day in Hyde Park, London. While that is news in and of itself, it appears that songwriter and frontman Jeff Lynne had a good enough time to indicate that more may be in store for ELO. As reported by NME, Lynne gave the 50,000+ audience the thumbs up after a performance of set opener "All Over The World" (originally found on the 1980 Xanadu soundtrack), commenting, "Wow, fantastic. It's unbelievable this really. I haven't done anything like this for so long, I can't believe it." Later, Lynne was more revealing as to how the experience was going for him, noting, "I'll do this again." Of course, we don't know if that means sooner or later (obviously Coachella would be champing at the bit to get ELO on their poster), but this indication of eventually further ELO appearance is enough to make audiences on both sides of the Atlantic pretty excited.
