|Actor:||Electric Light Orchestra|
The Seventies was the decade when rock became show business, and nobody put on a better show than the Electric Light Orchestra. The whole world plugged in as the best of classical met the pop generation. The result? Classic rock! George Harrison himself once said that if the Beatles had stayed together they would have sounded like ELO. But their Out of the Blue Tour took into another dimension altogether.
Captured live at London's Wembley Arena in 1978, this space-age show will live forever in rock history as - quite literally - out of this world. Shimmering strings and spectacular special effects conjure up sights and sounds that Spielberg himself could only dream of, "Ole ELO" read the headlines - and with less than nine Top Thirty Hits the music's more than a match for the visuals.
Jeff Lynne, once of the Move and ELO's singer/songwriter extraordinaire, went on to electify the world with Dylan, Harrison, Petty and Orbison as a Travelling Wilbury. But he'll never surpass this laser-lit feast of stadium rock at it's mind boggling best.
When Star Wars met Chuck Berry, the result had to be seen to be believed. Now you can see it - and believe it -as the Light shines on!
