THE ORCHESTRA Returns To The State Theatre
Many recall Electric Light Orchestra as a powerhouse stadium and arena band who toured between 1971 and 1986. ELO Part 2 then toured from 1990 through 2000. In 2001 ELO Part 2 changed names and started performing as THE ORCHESTRA. Still performing all the unmistakable ELO hit songs, THE ORCHESTRA comes to the State Theatre for one night only - Friday, February 9th.
Show time is 7:30PM. Tickets are $45 & $40 and can be purchased by visiting the State Theatre Box Office, 453 Northampton Street, Easton, by calling 1-800-999-STATE, 610.252.3132 or online at www.statetheatre.org. Sponsored by 99.9 The Hawk and Follett, LLC.
