The tour announcement comes just ahead of this Friday’s release of the live concert CD/DVD, Wembley or Bust, which will give fans a glimpse into the extraordinary ELO live experience that had critics in the UK raving.

Of the tour, Jeff Lynne says, “Our audiences are amazing. It’s like they’re in the group. We can’t wait to play for them again.” The tour will hit 10 cities, starting in Oakland, CA at Oracle Arena before wrapping in Philadelphia, PA at Wells Fargo Center. See below for full tour routing.
