|1,500 folks crammed into the courtyard of Chepstow Castle last night to see ELO Again ...|
ELO tribute band performing in an eleventh century medieval castle in front of a hefty and appreciative crowd on a pleasant Summer night meant that there was a special atmosphere for all those in attendance as the South Wales based band delivered another impressive set of twenty five  ELO songs covering the period 1971-1983, including two [UK] album tracks. ELO Again particularly excelled when it came to the ELO classic rockers "Ma Ma Ma Belle", "Showdown", "Do Ya" and "Rockaria!" with their set perfectly balanced by choir backed, beautiful renditions of "Can't Get It Out Of My Head" [surely THE best place to experience this "Eldorado" epic] and "Mr. Blue Sky". This was a well organised, wonderful concert in a sublime setting. It was a pleasure to attend and a credit to a band riding on the crest of an ELO wave of popularity.
