Jeff Lynne has announced that Dhani Harrison, George’s son, will be his special guest for his 2019 tour with ELO. While the pair have collaborated on many projects, it marks the first time they will tour together.
On Oct. 20, 2018, Lynne began teasing “Where will the ship land?” on his social media platforms. On Oct. 22, Lynne announced 20 North American dates in 2019 for what’s been billed for several years now as Jeff Lynne’s ELO. And it’s a relief for his fans on this side of the Atlantic, many of whom were bypassed when his first North American tour since 1981 consisted of just 12 dates in August.
Fans can expect a set of classic rock crowd pleasers: “Evil Woman,” “Telephone Line,” “Don’t Bring Me Down” and “Sweet Talkin’ Woman,” among them.
The tour, produced by Live Nation, begins June 20 and concludes on August 1. Only four of the cities on the new itinerary were also on their 2018 schedule.
