JEFF LYNNE’S ELO ADDS DHANI HARRISON TO 2020 ‘FROM OUT OF NOWHERE’ TOUR
(Thursday 30 January) Following the announcement of his autumn 2020 European tour, Jeff Lynne has today announced that Dhani Harrison will be joining at SSE Arena Belfast on 18th October and 3Arena Dublin on 19th October.
With more than 50 million albums sold, ELO ranks among the most popular acts of its era. Those totals cover four consecutive Top 10 albums and seven reaching the Top 20, as well as a remarkable string of hit singles — 20 reaching the U.S. Top 40 and a full seven of them lodging in the Top 10.
Lynne’s reach, of course, has extended far beyond ELO, touching millions as a producer and collaborator, most notably as a member of the Traveling Wilburys alongside George Harrison, Bob Dylan, Roy Orbison and Tom Petty.
He also produced Harrison’s colourful Cloud Nine album and with Harrison, Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr crafted full songs from John Lennon’s home tapes of “Free as a Bird” and “Real Love.”

Dhani Harrison’s career path has been anything but conventional. It’s hard to believe that after three albums and two EPs with his band project thenewno2, along with a role in the supergroup Fistful of Mercy (with Ben Harper and Joseph Arthur) and now a solo artist in his own right with his debut release, IN///PARALLEL, Harrison’s career is still evolving at a lightning pace.
Harrison’s music career was kick-started when he co-produced (with Jeff Lynne) his father’s posthumous 2004 album Brainwashed, which earned three Grammy nominations and won the award for Best Pop Instrumental Performance (“Marwa Blues”). He has gone on to collaborate with an eclectic array of musicians during his career including like-minded artists such as The Wu-Tang Clan, Regina Spektor, Pearl Jam, UNKLE and Prince. Harrison’s thirst to always move forward and seek out new musical projects knows no bounds.
Dhani admits he didn’t put his name on a solo album sooner because he’d never really had a chance to know who he was as an artist until now.
“The only thing holding me back is myself, but this album was a chance to show the world who I really am. If it scares you, good.”
Dhani Harrison accepts his own destiny with his first solo release and forges yet another new identity as an artist, built upon what came before, but ready for the future. Now it’s our turn to hear it.
