This fucken sucks, I was all hyped up for their show here in San Diego. Sony did not want to back up his tour.

Sorry Guys!

E.L.O

Two reasons...
1) Lack of ticket sales (likely due to overly high ticket prices... the local show here was $75 each BEFORE any surcharges)
2) Lack of sales of new album (which had only sold about 52,000 copies since it was released in June).

I'm sorry that fans won't get to see the band, but was anyone honestly surprised by the cancellation? I first heard about the show in Philly for Madonna last month; they stuck a flier under my windshield. I was astonished to hear that ELO'd play the FU Center. When I asked people where they thought a reunited ELO would play, they uniformly answered "Constitution Hall", a local venue that holds about 3000. All felt astonished that the band would be booked in 20,000 seat arenas.
As such, I don't think it's a shock the shows didn't fill the places. Even with a lower ticket price, I just don't see a whole lot of enthusiasm for the band. That's not a knock on them, but frankly not all that many folks remember them...

Why should anyone in the US want to see the ELO concert when PBS is showing the Zoom concert during pledge week? After seeing it myself, I wouldn't mind going to see it live, but I assume everyone is waiting for the DVD of Zoom concert to come out.

I think it was more of a Jeff Lynn concert then an E.L.O. concert. By the way I watched the Zoom concert on PBS and thought it was OK but not worth paying $75 for. Did anyone else think that the cello player on the left looked like Nicole Kidman?
