Electric Light Overture put on a great performance and the opening Cars tribute band The Dangerous Types were a great bonus. The House of Blues was a good venue with good staffing and made it very easy to retreive my tickets at the box office.

An absolutely great cover band. It made us want to be official "cover fans" - ELO had many great songs and they played them all, and their string players were just as integral and fantastic as the singers.

Outstanding! Great sound and song selections. Fun stage presence, the band seemed to be having a good time and happy to be there. The music and chorus vocals really captured the ELO sound. Lead singer is very good. Most of the time was right...continued

The opening band, Dangerous Types (a "The Cars" tribute band)...was excellent. ELO just were too flat and despite 2 cellists and 1 violinist, couldn't come close to capturing the energy of the original band. Their lead singer sounded nothing...continued

This band really did ELO justice, and it was like watching them in person. Really good job, vocals and instrumentals, and the string section was really great, although I think they needed to make the strings louder.
Costumes and equipment were...continued
