ELO extends 2024 farewell tour, adds 2nd MSG concert. Get tickets now


Jeff Lynne and Electric Light Orchestra are experiencing a “Strange Magic.”

After announcing their 2024 farewell ‘Over and Out Tour’ in mid-March, the Rock and Roll Hall of Famers have extended their run adding second shows in New York, Philadelphia, Chicago and Los Angeles.

The hitmakers will now perform back-to-back nights at Madison Square Garden on Monday, Sept. 16 and Tuesday, Sept. 17.

“… it’s going to be out of this world!” the band shared in their original tour announcement on Instagram.

This now 31-show trek will be the band’s first since their 2018 tour where they dusted off classic tracks like “Don’t Let Me Down,” “Mr. Blue Sky,” “Telephone Line,” “Turn To Stone,” “Showdown” and many, many more.

If you can’t wait to sing along to all your favorite classic rock radio staples live, tickets can be secured for all ELO shows as of today.

16.) “Don’t Bring Me Down”

17.) “Turn to Stone”

18.) “Mr. Blue Sky”


19.) “Roll Over Beethoven” (Chuck Berry cover)

ELO new music

Although the group has regularly put out reissues and remasters of classic tracks in the 2020s — see “Vocoder,” “Ballads,” “ELO 50th Anniversary Vol. 1” and “ELO 50th Anniversary Vol. 1” — their last album comprised of wholly original music was 2019’s superb “Out Of Nowhere.”

The ten-track record sounds sharper than it has any right to; by our estimation, Lynne’s voice still hits the Beach Boys-level high notes with ease and the tight instrumentation is just as hook-y and danceable as the group’s catchy hits from their ’70s heyday.

If you’re trepidatious of revisiting one of your favorite groups, we recommend starting with the Beatles-esque “From Out Of Nowhere,” tropical “All My Love” and hard-rockin’ “One More Time.”

Make sure to save the upbeat, call and response bop “Time Of Our Life” for last. We promise, you’ll be dancing in no time.
