Prog-pop maestro Jeff Lynne today announced a North American arena tour set for next summer with his band ELO. And though there's no Orlando date, Lynne will be landing his musical spaceship in nearby Tampa.

ELO were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2017 and undertook an American tour this summer (their first in 30 years), of which next year's dates are the sequel.

Jeff Lynne's ELO plays the Amalie Arena in Tampa on Sunday, July 7, 2019, at 8 p.m. Tickets go on sale Oct. 29.
