MANHATTAN — The second show of the McCain Performance Series spring season will feature the timeless hits of ELO as performed by The Electric Light Orchestra Experience featuring Evil Woman at 7:30 p.m. Friday, March 11, in Kansas State University's McCain Auditorium.

Evil Woman is widely recognized as the world's premier tribute to ELO due to brilliant arrangements, flawless musicianship and superlative vocals.

Picking up where the Beatles left off in 1970, the UK-based ELO expanded the concept of great melodies, epic song structures and grand orchestrations where cellos coexisted with guitars and classically tinged progressive rock intersected with hook-filled, radio-friendly pop songs resulting in ELO becoming one of the most popular groups of the 1970s with numerous hit songs, including "Evil Woman," "Telephone Line," "Mr. Blue Sky," "Xanadu," "Livin' Thing," "Don't Bring Me Down" and many others.

Tickets are available online at mccain.k-state.edu or at the Ticket Services Office in the newly expanded McCain lobby from noon to 4 p.m. Wednesdays through Fridays. Tickets are also available by phone, 785-532-6428, during the same hours. Kids 18 and under get 50% off the general price of admission.

Effective March 2, Kansas State University is strongly encouraging — but not requiring — that everyone wear masks while indoors on university property. The university's updated mask guidance policy can be found at k-state.edu/covid-19. The university's updated face mask guidance is based on the newest Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidance for determining face mask requirements.

For the 2021-2022 season, if a patron wishes to not attend a show for any reason, the patron can ask for a refund or a credit to their account up to 30 minutes before showtime.
