Heading out on the road in April 2016, the tour kicks off at Liverpool’s Echo Arena before winding it’s way down to end with two nights at London’s O2 Arena.
As well as having an album to promote, the tour announcement comes on the heels of Jeff Lynne’s huge concert in London’s Hyde Park in 2014, performing some of his greatest hits (including Mr Blue Sky and Don’t Bring Me Down) to one of his largest audiences in decades.
Speaking to the Toronto Sun, Lynne said: “That lit a fire under me. I was nervous before I did it because I didn’t know if anyone would be there. But it was absolutely super. There were 50,000 people going wild. They clapped and stamped along and sang louder than me. They knew the words better than me! Once we did that, I was pretty inspired.”
Alone In The Universe tour tickets go on general sale on 13th November, with O2 priority customers being able to secure theirs 48 hours earlier.
