For the first time ever in Australia CCE present a concert profiling two of the UKs finest musical exports from the golden age of rock music. This is a must-see for boomers as well as those who like their music with a bit of bite.
The Electric Light Orchestra (ELO) are an English rock band formed in Birmingham in 1970, by Jeff Lynne. Their music is characterised by a fusion of Beatlesque pop, classical arrangements, and futuristic iconography.
During the 1970s and 1980s, ELO released a string of top 10 albums and singles, including two LPs that reached the top of British charts: Discovery (1979) and Time (1981).
ELO sold over 50 million records worldwide. For a period in the mid-1970s, and from 1972 to 1986, accumulated twenty Top 20 songs on the UK Singles Chart, and fifteen Top 20 songs on the US Billboard Hot 100. The band also holds the record for having the most Billboard Hot 100 Top 40 hits (20) without a number one single of any band in US chart history. In 2017, ELO were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Supertramp are an English rock band formed in London in 1969. Though their music was initially categorised as progressive rock, they later incorporated a combination of traditional rock, pop and art rock into their music.
The band's work is marked by the individual song-writing of founders Roger Hodgson and Rick Davies and the prominent use of Wurlitzer electric piano and saxophone. Though their early style was progressive, they enjoyed greater commercial success when they incorporated more radio-friendly pop elements into their work in the mid-1970s, going on to sell more than 60 million albums.
The band reached their commercial peak with 1979's Breakfast in America, which sold more than 20 million copies.
