(WOMC) — The man behind some of the biggest sounds of the 70s and 80s will be bringing his new incarnation of the legendary band to Detroit next year.
It has been announced that Jeff Lynne’s ELO will be coming to Little Caesars Arena as part of a new tour.
They will be at LCA on Thursday, August 16, 2018.
The show is one of 10 shows scheduled in North America for 2018.
It’s the first extensive North American tour in over 30 years. The last ELO show in Detroit was in 1978.
With instantly recognizable hits like ‘Mr Blue Sky’, ‘Livin Thing’ and ‘Xanadu’, the shows are set to be a special run.
Tickets go on sale for the Detroit show on Friday, Nov. 17, at 10 a.m.
