Great atmosphere, mixed audience of young and old played a mixture of old and new songs. The light show was fantastic and gig was overall brilliant. ELO are still the greatest band, a must go and see if you get the chance would love them to come to Scotland again but would travel anywhere to see them.
I saw ELO in Denver in the early 70's, it was the best show I have ever seen and I saw everybody back in the day. The date is wrong but I don't remember the exact date. It was a long time ago. Elton John was the next best show to me.
