Jeff Lynne's ELO: 2019 Take That Tour Clash + Tickets

#1,460: As suggested in this elobeatlesforever (elobf) article last weekend, Jeff Lynne's ELO confirmed their 20 date tour of the United States and Canada during Summer 2019 commencing at Anaheim on Thursday 20th June and finishing in Pittsburgh on Thursday 1st August. Whilst it was not a surprise in and of itself, a return to more North American shows so soon did raise a few third eyebrows.

Caught Live (5): Jeff Lynne's ELO @ Liverpool 23/10/18

Yet when Yours Truly KJS looked at the EJLO tour itinerary, the most obvious aspect was that there will be a significant clash with nine Take That Greatest Hits Live 2019 tour concerts taking place in Europe at the same time as Jeff Lynne's ELO are scheduled to play six gigs up and down the Pacific coast (see table below). Therefore, we must draw the conclusion that either Take That or Jeff Lynne will utilize a new touring band (at least in part). This would be a departure for either artist and, if Mike Stevens, Milton McDonald and Donovan Hepburn are contracted for the TT dates, it will be interesting to see which musicians will back the ELO maestro for his shows - likewise if the scenario is reversed. Watch that space!
