The first of the National press ads for the forthcoming Orchestra UK tour has appeared In the Sunday Mirror. I am really looking forward to this tour and meeting up with many of you who I havent seen for a while. It's an exciting time ahead and I think we are all very much awaiting the start of the tour with relish.
For those who have seen me either solo or with Bev Bevans Move, Brum Rocks or The Eleanor Rigby Experience, but have not as yet seen The Orchestra, then I think you may well be interested in coming along to the show when we are near to you. The band is currently working on a new set which encompasses 30 years of ELO, ELO Part2 and Orchestra material. Possibly the most comprehensive set list ever performed by the band or any of its variants.
