Cape Town - The Electric Light Orchestra featuring Phil Bates will bring four decades of hits to the stage in Johannesburg and Cape Town.

The performances will take place in February 2014 in Johannesburg and Cape Town and will also feature popular South African electro string group The Muses.

This is an incredibly rare opportunity for true fans of classic rock to hear one of the greatest bands of the 70s, 80s and 90s live and revel in forty years of hits in one evening.

The Electric Light Orchestra (ELO) are one of the most successful bands in the history of music. Their songs were played on the radio millions of times. ELO had dozens of top 20 hits; many of them became classics in pop history. The band forged a bridge between classical and rock music, between electronic and orchestral music, between traditional and modern trends.

Electric Light Orchestra Classics frontman Phil Bates (hailed by Classic Rock Magazine as among the UK's best vocalists & lead vocalist and guitarist of ELO Part II in 1993) is the direct successor of Jeff Lynne in the ELO annals.

Phil Bates and Electric Light Orchestra Classics will perform a set list that includes massive ELO hits Don't Bring Me Down, All Over The World, Shine A Little Love, Turn To Stone, Evil Woman and many more.
