I was too young to see the "Time" tour back in the day. I also missed ELO's 1986 dates too and those OrKestra gigs in 1988 for different reasons so you'll probably be surprised to find out that my very first gig of ELO music was at the NEC in Birmingham on Tuesday 28th May 1991 when Bev Bevan's Electric Light Orchestra Part Two teamed up with the Moscow Symphony Orchestra to deliver an amazing, string laden show comprising the hits of ELO as well as new material from their debut album. I still fondly remember the expectation and thrill of experiencing the music of Jeff Lynne [and a certain Brummie band who had first gotten my attention as a ten year old some fourteen years earlier] in the flesh, having travelled up from my then home in Weston-super-Mare.
