From Jeff Lynne's Official Facebook Page and ELO-Showdown, the surprise official announcement was made today. General admission tickets already sold out.


BBC Radio 2 Breakfast show presenter, Chris Evans, today (Friday 13 June) announced that Jeff Lynne's iconic ELO will headline this year’s BBC Radio 2 Live in Hyde Park on Sunday 14 September. 
Jeff Lynne has experienced global success as one of the founding members of the Electric Light Orchestra (ELO) and creator of ELO’s music, as well as a solo artist, composer, producer and song-writer but this will be the first time that he has performed as ELO at any festival since 1986. He was also a co-founder and member of The Traveling Wilburys together with George Harrison, Bob Dylan, Roy Orbison and Tom Petty. 
The crowds at Hyde Park will be able to witness the hit music of ELO accompanied by the BBC Concert Orchestra. This combination highlights the diverse range of musical collaboration Radio 2 is able to curate. 
Jeff Lynne said:
"I haven't performed live in quite some time, and I know the fans have asked for it a lot over the years. It's very exciting to come to Hyde Park with Radio 2 and do something this big, and I’m very much looking forward to playing my ELO songs for everyone." 
Chris Evans said:
"I'm a huge fan of ELO and Jeff Lynne and am excited beyond words that he's going to be performing at BBC Radio 2 Live at Hyde Park. What a line-up. The audience is in for a real treat!" 
Jeff Lynne's ELO is the latest addition to an already impressive line-up of top names which includes music legend Blondie, illustrious lead singer of The Pretenders Chrissie Hynde, 80s favourite pop and soul star Billy Ocean, double platinum songstress Paloma Faith, Grammy Award-winning jazz vocalist/songwriter Gregory Porter, eleven-piece contemporary folk band Bellowhead and 2014 Academy of Country Music Album of the Year Award winner Kacey Musgraves. 
Jeff Smith, Head of Music, Radio 2 and 6 Music, said:
"It's our privilege that Jeff has chosen Radio 2 Live In Hyde Park to bring back ELO to the live stage. We’re very excited to have him play some of the greatest hits including Mr Blue Sky and Livin' Thing as we know our audience loves this music. To hear these songs live and in the atmospheric surroundings of Hyde Park will be a unique moment for all of us. ELO and our already impressive line-up promises to deliver a glorious day of late summer entertainment." 
Now in its seventh year, Radio 2 Live in Hyde Park is the live highlight of the Radio 2 musical calendar. So far this year Radio 2 In Concert has featured Kylie Minogue and Elbow, as well as the recent Friday Night is Music Night D-Day special from Royal Albert Hall which was live on Red Button as well as screened at cinemas around the UK.

Coverage of the event, including full sets and performances from the day, will be available to watch on the BBC Red Button, BBC iPlayer and the Radio 2 website, which will also feature exclusive backstage footage, acoustic sessions and interviews from the event. 
Tickets are now available for the event with details on how to purchase them available via

Take the time to learn more about different carnival rides before you decide which ones you want to book for your event.
If you are not sure which rides would be best for your guests,
find a rental service that hires knowledgeable employees when it comes to event planning

our Brisbane weather is for a large percentage of the year, some days just call for some indoor play.
If you have active Brisbane Kids, the need often arises for them to burn off some energy,
which is not always possible indoors at home if the weather is no good.

Safety is very important when it comes to carnival rides. You need to select a rental service that will test the carnival rides before your event begins.
You can also get an idea of how important security is for a company by reading reviews written by their clients.
Don’t hesitate to ask questions about safety measures.
You should also find out how old the carnival rides are and how often they are maintained.

Apart from the ensuring that the wedding car is in good condition, there are other small details that must be looked into.
For a very luxurious car, there are actually companies that provide champagne bottle as a token for their clients. If you are able to find a great deal,
you will be very lucky to have car hire’s decoration included in the package. Without having to pay extra,
you tailor the color of the vehicle to complement the wedding’s motif.

Do some research on different services to make sure you rent from a reliable company that truly cares about safety and
will do its best to provide you with a great experience. Renting carnival rides will be a lot more pleasant
if you select a service that will show up on time, set up the rides and properly test them before the event.
