|Fusion – Live in London|
|Video by Electric Light Orchestra|
|Electric Light Orchestra chronology|
Filmed in 1976 whilst on their Face the Music Tour, sees the band live in London for the first time in three years, due to their popularity in the United States. Released in VHS format in 1990.
Aside from Out of the Blue: Live at Wembley, this is the only concert footage of the classic lineup known to exist (with Zoom Tour Live and a VH1 Storytellers appearance from 2001 forming the only other pieces of live footage). This provides a rare look at ELO before the Out of the Blue tour, lacking the vast UFO stage (which caused numerous performance and filming difficulties) as well as CBS' often intrusive video editing techniques.
On 9 August 2010 the concert finally saw its official DVD release by Eagle Rock Entertainment in the UK as a part of their compilation Live - The Early Years, then stateside 24 August 2010 as a slightly edited release.
