June's stunning Wembley Stadium gig is being immortalised in the live DVD Wembley Or Bust, out on November 17.

While young'uns are rejoicing that Taylor Swift's North American tour will make a stop next summer at Gillette Stadium, fogier music fans in MA may be disappointed to learn that ELO's first USA tour in 30 years does not include a Boston date.

Widely agreed upon as one of the greatest record producers in music history, Lynne was a co-founder and member of The Travelling Wilburys together with Bob Dylan, Roy Orbison, George Harrison and Tom Petty. The tour will hit 10 cities, starting in Oakland, CA at Oracle Arena and wrapping up in Philadelphia, PA at Wells Fargo Center.

In a statement, Lynne commented on the long-awaited North American ELO tour: "Our audiences are wonderful".

Gas prices up 4 cents in Meadville area since last week
Oil prices also are up to around $55-$60 a barrel. "We were in the stratosphere, so to speak, in terms of wholesale prices". GasBuddy .com said some locations in Omaha were selling regular unleaded Monday for as low as $2.34 and $2.37 per gallon.

In 2014, Lynne released the first ELO album in 15 years, Alone in the Universe. "We can't wait to play for them again", Lynne said in a statement.

Tickets go on sale at 9am on Friday 17 November priced at £56, £89.60, £100.80 and £128.80. (See below for a full list of dates). A LiveNation pre-sale will kick off on November 16 at 10 a.m. Codes can be used during the pre-sale window for access to tickets before the general public on-sale.

You can pre-order Wembley or Bust on the band's website, where you can also sign up to get early access to tickets.
