Tributosaurus Becomes ELO 21+ Show

Saturday, March 9 · 8pm  Tickets Available

When we last did ELO in 2018, it was the most requested band in our queue of requests by a huge margin, and since then, the requests have been rolling in again at a furious pace. It seems the spectacle of those shows has left a lasting impression on you, and on us – it is a massive undertaking. Well, we love this stuff, and we love the challenge…

Huge strings, quirky mix of old time rock and roll and psychedelia – this band redefined the sound of records for quite a while. We will bring the whole shebang to you once again this March at Theater on the Lake – the perfect venue for something of this scope.

Known as “The English guys with the big fiddles”, their fusion of Beatlesque pop, classical arrangements and futuristic iconography changed the face of pop music, and their sound remains as specific and huge now as it was when they first erupted onto the music scene. There is truly no other band like it.
