The cult classic rock group from the 1970s, Electric Light Orchestra (ELO) returns to Kyiv in its new incarnation, called simply the Orchestra.
The concert is part of the group’s world tour in honor of the 40th anniversary since their debut album.
The band will be accompanied by the State Symphony classical orchestra.
Hailing from Birmingham, England, the musicians initially dedicated themselves to “classical” rock and quickly gained a large following.
Hits such as “Ticket to the Moon,” “Roll over Beethoven” and “Don’t bring me down” are still popular even three decades later.
Their music will surely fill any senior listener with nostalgia.
There are currently six members in the band, including two original ELO players. In 2009, they released an album “Zoom” in collaboration with Ringo Starr and George Harrison from The Beatles.
Mon, Nov. 14, 7 p.m., Palats Ukraina, 103 Velyka Vasylkivska St., 287-7777, tickets: Hr 150-1,150.
