Supporting Acts announced for ELO Concert

Jeff Lynne’s ELO

Announce Tom Chaplin and The Shires as Supports for upcoming UK Dates


Jeff Lynne’s ELO will be joined by Tom Chaplin on their run of dates in the UK this summer, and also by The Shires at Wembley Stadium, London on June 24th and at Hull KCOM Stadium on July 1st.

Tom Chaplin is best known for being the lead singer in the anthemic, multi-million selling UK band Keane. Stepping out on his own in 2016, his solo album ‘The Wave’ debuted at Number 3 in the UK chart and features eleven incredibly honest and ultimately uplifting songs driven by his unmistakable voice. To take his live show on the road, he’s assembled an incredible array of musicians to bring his richly layered sound to life.

The first British act ever to win a prestigious Country Music Award, and the fastest ever selling UK Country Act, The Shires will bring hits from their Gold-selling ‘My Universe’ to Wembley Stadium to open for Jeff Lynne’s ELO on June 24th and to the KCOM Stadium ons July 1st.

Jeff Lynne’s ELO continue to go from strength to strength with not only his latest platinum album, ‘Alone In The Universe’ a runaway success both commercially and critically, (with all the singles taken from it featuring on the Radio 2 A List) but also ssover a million sales of ‘All Over The World - The Very Best Of Electric Light Orchestra’.

2017 will see ELO inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY, on April 7th. The band will be inducted alongside Joan Baez, Journey, Pearl Jam, Tupac Shakur, and Yes.
