The band join a phenomenal list of musical heavyweights heading to Hull next year.
Globally-renowned rock superstars ELO will take to Hull’s KCOM Stadium during next year’s City of Culture celebrations. This fantastic announcement comes off the back of a sell-out UK arena tour, where the band is expected to wow fans across the country with breath-taking live performances fusing rock, pop and classical music.
Taking place on Saturday July 1 2017, the show forms part of Hull 2017’s ‘Freedom’ season and is just one of a growing list of incredible musical performances taking place throughout the year, involving both local and international touring acts.
Having ELO confirm their plans to come to Hull in 2017 adds to what is turning into an amazing year of music for this city. Hull is already a brilliant place for music and we are thrilled that it is attracting more talent during its UK City of Culture year.
