The tour in support of the Face The Music album is arguably ELO's hardest working tour. It was the longest schedule of any of their tours as well as having the longest (and most variable) setlist. It ran from November 1975 to September 1976, all across Europe and North America. The start of the tour coincided with the worldwide release of the Evil Woman single in late 1975, which was ELO's first worldwide hit reaching the top ten in many countries in which it was released, including both the UK and USA. It was this tour that helped move ELO up a level to superstar status and they began regularly being the headline act, rather than the supporting act.
