Billy Lockett is heading for arenas across the UK and Europe after revealing he will open for Jeff Lynne’s ELO.

The Northampton born singer songwriter made the announcement across his social media platforms today.

He will join up with the band for 25 dates during September and October, the nearest being three nights at the Arena Birmingham.

Lockett was due to play a headline gig at London’s Shepherd’s Bush Empire on October 9 and other dates across Europe, but these have been postponed and will be rescheduled in due course.

He headlined the Royal Theatre in Northampton earlier this year and the singles Fading Into Grey and My Only Soul last month.
