It is just human nature that we are a nostalgic group of beings, it is easy for us to be carried back to memories of our childhood through TV shows, books and music.
We can sit on the couch for hours mesmerized by a “M*A*S*H” marathon on television, and how many of us get sucked in when The Godfather is on? I, for one, could listen to music from the 70’s and 80’s on an endless loop, never again tuning into hip hop or whatever they call music nowadays.
The Orchestra, featuring former members of ELO, will bring their 15th Anniversary tour to the Plaza Live! Orlando on August 28.
The band is comprised of all six members of ELO II, and two of those were also members of Electric Light Orchestra in the 70s. For legal reasons, they have been touring internationally since 2001 as The Orchestra.
But ELO’s legendary hits are the cornerstone of The Orchestra’s repertoire, and they will be playing many of the live, including “Strange Magic,” “Do Ya, Don’t Bring Me Down,” “Evil Woman,” “Livin’ Thing,” “Turn to Stone,” “Sweet Talkin’ Woman,” “Telephone Line,” “Ma-Ma-Ma Belle,” “Mr. Blue Sky,” and “Roll Over Beethoven.”

Opening the show will be Central Florida’s own Rico Monaco’s Classic Rockers. The much lauded Monaco and his band will let loose their classic rock side at this show.
Tickets to see The Orchestra are $39.50 to $59.50. VIP tickets are $125, and include a premium seat in the first two rows and a meet & greet with The Orchestra. All tickets may be purchased at plazaliveorlando.com, and the venue box office.
