ELO maestro conducted a fifteen song cameo that encompassed the ELO singles career from 1971-80 with a number of songs omitted from their recent "Alone In The Universe" arena tour with "When I Was A Boy" pleasingly retained for the 75 minute show. Conditions were damp but that did not deter those "Standin' In The Rain" from responding - and dancing - in response to the likes of "All Over The World", "Shine A Little Love", "Turn To Stone", "Sweet Talkin' Woman" and "Roll Over Beethoven".
ELO classics will propel best-selling compilation "All Over The World" back up the UK Top 10, maybe even to #1.
