Electric Light Orchestra - Out of the Blue - Live at Wembley, 6 September 2015
Author: Horrorliefhebber from Belgium

-Out of the Blue: Live at Wembley is a concert film by the Electric Light Orchestra. -In 1978 the band played the Wembley Arena for a record eight appearances. The opening night (a charity Gala event) was filmed in the presence of the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester and the band were introduced by US actor Tony Curtis. The stage was a huge flying saucer with hydraulic lifts, the 'roof' would open up to reveal the band. The concert was one of the first examples of lasers used at a live rock concert. Due to the nature of the sound acoustics on the huge metal and fiberglass flying saucer shaped stage the band had difficulty hearing their monitors and keeping time, so backing tapes were used that only the band were supposed to hear. The original TV broadcast edit in mono sound was poorly mixed from the concert and used some of the backing tapes used by the band pushed high in the mix which appeared to make the band look like they were lip-synching. -The Out of the Blue Tour or Big Night tour as it was known in the United States, became the highest grossing concert tour of 1978, with the North American leg of the tour breaking many attendance and sales records. This concert, along with The Face the Music Tour 1976, were released as live compact discs in 1998.

- Personnel:

• Jeff Lynne – Vocals, Guitar • Bev Bevan – Drums • Richard Tandy – Keyboards • Kelly Groucutt – bass, Vocals • Mik Kaminski – Violin • Hugh McDowell – Cello • Melvyn Gale – Cello, Piano • Jake Commander – Backing vocals, acoustic guitar
