The Diary of Jeff Lynne: Wembley Or Bust

#1,335: The promotional juggernaut for "Wembley Or Bust" is now up and running as Jeff Lynne's ELO and Sony Music (via RCA in the UK) build towards the official release date of Friday 17th November in just two weeks time. The ELO maestro flew into the UK the other day in advance of a flurry of corporate engagements, media appearances and a world premiere (more on that below) before he returns to the States for a screening of the film in LA next week. Yours Truly KJS and elobeatlesforever (elobf) thought it would be worthwhile to compile this unofficial diary of the forthcoming events for you to peruse thus:

Monday 6th November
Jeff Lynne's ELO will perform at a gala ceremony held in aid of the BRIT Trust and Nordoff Robbins in The Great Room, Grosvenor House Hotel, London where Sony Music CEO Rob Stringer will receive the prestigious Music Industry Trusts Award.

Tuesday 7th November 
Following a live Q&A session with Jeff, the worldwide premiere of "Wembley Or Bust" will be held at The Electric Cinema in London. A competition to win a pair of tickets to attend this not-to-be-missed event is being run by Sony Music (UK) via this link thus:

Wednesday 8th November
Jeff will be getting to the point during Simon Mayo's Drivetime show on BBC Radio 2 just after 6:00PM.

Thursday 16th November
Jeff will attend a sold-out intimate screening of "Wembley Or Bust" at The Clive Davis Theatre within the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles followed by a Q&A session.

Friday 17th November
Worldwide release of "Wembley Or Bust" by Jeff Lynne's ELO in multiple formats!
elobeatlesforever (elobf) recommends "Wembley Or Bust" to those enlightened folks who enjoy the music of ELO/Jeff LynneRoy Wood'Brum Beat'The Idle RaceThe Traveling WilburysThe MoveThe Beatles and related artistes.

Until next "Time" in the ELO (and related) Universe ... KJS ... 03-Nov-2017


  1. I wonder if there is any chance that they will release the 1981 Time Tour concert in it's entirety. Surely they know, that's the live footage that all ELO fans would love to have.
