Jeff Lynne’s ELO packed London’s enormous Wembley Stadium to the rafters this past June with a greatest-hits set featuring many of the band’s most classic songs including “Mr. Blue Sky,” “Evil Woman,” and “All Over the World.”  Now, that gig is getting a wide release this Friday, November 17th.  Wembley or Bust will arrive on that date from Columbia Records in a variety of formats: 2CD/1DVD; 2CD/1BD; 2 CD; and 3LP.

Recorded on June 24th, the Wembley concert has been described by recent Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Lynne as “the best time I ever had in music” and “beyond anything I could have imagined.”  The upcoming release preserves the 23-song  marathon setlist, which in addition to the famous ELO songs, also included The Traveling Wilburys’ “Handle with Care” – a particularly poignant inclusion now after the untimely passing of Lynne’s friend and bandmate, Tom Petty.  The nostalgic ballad “When I Was a Boy,” from ELO’s acclaimed 2015 album All Alone in the Universe, was also played.
