Jeff Lynne's ELO to play Glastonbury
They'll occupy the 'Legends' slot.
Jeff Lynne’s Electric Light Orchestra (ELO) will take the Pyramid stage at Glastonbury festival this summer, organizers have announced. The group will play the “legends” set — “teatime” on Sunday, June 26. (Lionel Richie performed during that time last year.)
The festival organizer Emily Eavis confirmed the timeslot:
Jeff Lynne’s ELO put out Alone in the Universal, their first album in 15 years, in 2015. “The whole album represents these new chords and just the thrill of it,” Lynne told EW last year. “I know how to get a sound exactly as I want it, and I know which way to get it.”
Jeff Lynne’s ELO will tour in Europe and the U.K. just before Glastonbury, which is set to run June 22-26 at Eavis’ Worthy Farm in Somerset, England. The rest of the massive lineup will be announced in the coming months.
