The Nancy And David Bilheimer Capitol Theatre presents The Electric Light Orchestra Experience – 50th Anniversary on Saturday, March 13 at 8 pm.
The legacy left by Jeff Lynne & The Electric Light Orchestra barely needs any introduction – suffice to say that between 1972 and 1986 they achieved more combined UK and US Top 40 hits than any other band on the planet! ‘10538 Overture’, ‘Evil Woman’, ‘Living Thing’, ‘Diary of Horace Wimp’, Don’t Bring me Down’ and of course ‘Mr. Blue Sky’ went on to become the soundtrack of our lives.
In 2016 Jeff Lynne’s ELO came back to prominence with the release of a brand-new album – Alone In The Universe and a UK and World tour. The ELO Experience Tour will include the greatest hits from an extensive and impressive back catalogue spanning over 45 years.
Blending rock rhythms with classical influences, ELO also released many classic albums such as ‘A New World Record’, ‘Discovery’ and ‘Out of the Blue’, and many sell out tours which further established them as one of the most important and influential bands ever.

The Nancy and David Bilheimer Capitol Theatre, located in downtown Clearwater’s Cleveland Street District, was constructed in 1921 and is one of Florida’s oldest operating theaters. In 2019, industry trade publication Pollstar named the Bilheimer Capitol Theatre the #1 club venue in Tampa, #1 in Florida, #3 in the United States and #3 in the world of club venues with 800 seats or less.
In 2013, the theater underwent a complete $10 million renovation and is the catalyst for downtown development. In 2019, Nancy and David Bilheimer donated $2.5 million to Ruth Eckerd hall as part of the theatre’s ongoing “Expanding the Experience” Capital campaign. In recognition of the generous donation, the Capitol Theatre’s name was changed to the Nancy and David Bilheimer Capitol Theatre. For more shows at the Capitol Theatre check out Spyro Gyra here.
