"Jeff Lynne's ELO: Wembley or Bust"
Premieres Friday, July 27 at 9 PM ET/PT on SHOWTIME
 
         The concert documentary makes its U.S. television premiere on SHOWTIME on-air, on demand and over the internet. Celebrating Lynne’s enduring and ongoing musical legacy, director Paul Dugdale documents Lynne's ELO performance in England’s famed Wembley Stadium in front of a sold-out crowd of 60,000 fans.              
 
        JEFF LYNNE’S ELO: WEMBLEY OR BUST gives viewers a behind-the-scenes look into the concert of recent Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee Lynne – one of the most successful recording artists, songwriters and producers of all-time. The film is complete with bells, whistles and spaceships, and most importantly, many of the most beloved songs of all time, from vintage ELO classics like “Mr. Blue Sky,” “Livin’ Thing” and “Evil Woman” to “Do Ya” from his days with The Move, “Handle With Care” which he recorded with the Traveling Wilburys, right through “When I Was A Boy” from his latest ELO album, Alone In The Universe. “I love it,” says Lynne. “This might be my favorite gig ever, so it’s a very good one to get to share.”
