It's ELO like Chinese Democracy-era Guns 'n' Roses was GnR. It's Jeff Lynne (who got the rights to the ELO name back from drummer Bev Bevan), keyboardist Richard Tandy and a bunch of replacements. Officially the band is "Jeff Lynne's ELO" to distinguish it from Bevan's ELO Part II/The Orchestra.

Still, it's a great show. I saw their 2016 date at the Hollywood Bowl, complete with orchestral backing from the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra. That kicked ass!
