Thrilling concert film that documents Jeff Lynne's ELO playing their triumphant concert for a massive audience at Wembley Stadium on 24 June 2017. This visually and musically impressive film gives viewers a remarkable evening in the life of recent Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee Lynne - one of the most successful recording artists, songwriters and producers of all-time. Having spent much of his recent life in America working in the studio and producing other musical greats, Lynne returns home for this unbelievable stadium show.

In Wembley or Bust, Lynne and his remarkable musical ensemble fill Wembley Stadium with one of the greatest rock & roll spectacles of all time, complete with bells, whistles and spaceships, and most importantly, many of the most-beloved songs, from vintage ELO classics like Mr Blue Sky, Livin' Thing and Evil Woman to Do Ya from his days with The Move, Handle With Care, which he recorded with the Traveling Wilburys, right through to When I Was A Boy from his latest ELO masterpiece, Alone In The Universe.

Directed by Paul Dugdale, music lovers All Over The World can now see Jeff Lynne bringing all of his magnificent rock & roll dreams to life in a giant soccer stadium and winning big in every way.
