JEFF LYNNE TO BE HONOURED WITH ICON AWARD AT O2 SILVER CLEF AWARDS 2016

On 21 June, music therapy charity Nordoff Robbins revealed the final artists to be honoured at the prestigious O2 Silver Clef Awards...

The London Evening Standard Icon Award will be awarded to Jeff Lynne, founder of ELO. From 1972 to 1986, ELO has had twenty seven Jeff Lynne penned Top 40 songs on the UK Singles Chart, and fifteen Top 20 songs on the US Billboard Hot 100.

Jeff Lynne says of the accolade: “I am thrilled to be receiving the Icon Award. There are so many people who benefit from the charity’s work and I am honoured to have been made part of it.”

Jon O’Donnell, Managing Director of ESI Media said: “ESI Media, home of the The London Evening Standard, is extremely proud of its continued association with Nordoff Robbins and all the fantastic work they do. This year we're delighted to be presenting the Icon Award to a giant of the Music Industry on behalf of a giant hearted charity.”

The awards are the charity’s biggest event of the year, and will be taking place on 1 July at London’s Grosvenor House Hotel.

Other award recipients at this year's O2 Silver Clef Awards include Massive Attack, who will be presented with the Royal Albert Hall Best Group Award, Hozier, who gets the Raymond Weil International Award, Craig David, who will receive the AmericanExpress Innovation Award, and Patti Smith, who is being handed the Google Outstanding Achievement Award.

“The O2 Silver Clef Awards are one of the reasons why Nordoff Robbins is able to continue delivering life-changing music therapy to so many vulnerable and isolated people," said Nordoff Robbins CEO Julie Whelan. "Our 2016 winners are all incredible acts and we are delighted to add them to our very deserving list of winners.”

OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE - 4 February 2016

THE LOS ANGELES PHILHARMONIC ASSOCIATION ANNOUNCES

JEFF LYNNE'S ELO TO PERFORM THREE SHOWS
AT THE HOLLYWOOD BOWL FIREWORKS FINALE


September 9, 10 & 11, 2016

Full 2016 Summer Season to be Announced on February 9

 

 


Los Angeles, CA (February 4, 2016) - The Los Angeles Philharmonic Association announced today that Jeff Lynne's ELO is set to perform three shows at the Hollywood Bowl for the Fireworks Finale on September 9, 10 & 11. Joined by the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra Strings, conducted by Thomas Wilkins, these concerts mark the first time the band has played at the iconic venue. With the exception of a club show to celebrate the release of the album, this is also the first time Jeff Lynne's ELO has performed in Los Angeles in nearly 30 years.

On November 13, 2015 Jeff Lynne's ELO released Alone In The Universe on Columbia Records, the first album of all-new music released by the band in over a decade. The album received critical and fan praise alike, prompting NPR to hail the first single, "When I Was a Boy," as "vintage ELO, with Lynne's signature chord progressions, string flourishes and a wistful but infectious melody."

Rolling Stone raved, "Lynne definitely picked the right moment to reactivate ELO, waiting until he had a top-notch album ready to go - the excellent new Alone in the Universe, their finest since 1981's Time."

As with ELO's previous chart-topping albums, Jeff Lynne continues to serve as ELO's producer, songwriter, arranger, lead singer and guitarist. In September 2014, Jeff Lynne's ELO returned to the stage for the first time in almost 30 years to headline BBC Radio 2's "Festival In A Day" in London's famous Hyde Park, playing to a sold-out crowd of 50,000 fans while nearly a million viewers tuned into watch.

 



Tickets for the Hollywood Bowl 2016 summer season will be available online at HollywoodBowl.com or via phone at 323.850.2000 on the following dates:

New subscriptions and group sales will be available February 9, 2016.

"Five or More" packages will be available March 15, 2016.

The Hollywood Bowl box office opens for single ticket sales in early May 2016.

 



The entire season 2016 summer season at the Hollywood Bowl will be announced on February 9.
