From Showdown Mailing List:


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 Travelling 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.

Bev Bevan announces end of The Move

from Bevan's facebook page:

The Move (current line up Trevor Burton, Phil Tree, Tony Kelsey, Abby Brant and myself), are currently on the road, touring the UK. We are having a good time, playing to fans old and new. However, I am sad to say that this will be the last time. The reason is that the future is already getting choc a bloc with other projects that I am really excited about.

Trevor and I got back together a few years ago on a show called Brum Rocks 'Live' it was there that we decided to go with an idea that Carl Wayne had had a few years before and put the band back for a few gigs. So we started to do a few festivals and the odd one off date here and there in between our other commitments. Then finally some five years later we have managed to get a full tour in and it has been fantastic. The memories of gigging with Carl, Roy, Ace, Rick and Jeff have come flooding back. Trevor has been literally blowing the roof off. If you have been to a show I am sure you will agree, and we still have a few more to go before we move on to the next gigs which I am happy to say brings us all back together 'Stand Up & Rock' with Jasper Carrott, Geoff Turton and Joy Strachan-Brain. Make sure you come down to a gig we have some absolutely great songs planned and I know tickets are already flying out.

In 2015 Trevor and I both have our own bands on the road - Trevor with the Trevor Burton Band and me with the Bev Bevan Rock Band and as percussionist with Quill. Plus I am working on ideas for another radio series as well as continuing to write cd reviews for the Sunday Mercury and 24 / Seven magazine.
