The Moody Blues' John Lodge
Sat, July 13, 2024

John Lodge, legendary bass player, songwriter, and vocalist of The Moody Blues, and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, is back on tour! Following the critically acclaimed and sold out shows this year, Lodge is continuing in his celebration of The Moody Blues music, and the iconic album Days of Future Passed.

Performs Days of Future Passed encompasses a first set of electric Moodies classics featuring all the fan favorites such as "Isn’t Life Strange," "Legend of a Mind," "I’m Just a Singer (in a Rock and Roll Band)," "Ride my See-Saw," and so much more. The second set will see Lodge and his band perform the iconic album Days of Future Passed in its entirety, and in full symphonic sound. There are exciting changes from the original show, with new classic songs and deep cuts, enhanced video and dazzling lighting, all coming together to make a very special evening of great music and Moodies memories.

Come take a journey back in time with Lodge and his 10,000 Light Years Band as they create audio alchemy for your listening, and visual pleasure!

As Beneath a Desert Sky said, "a must see show if you love classic progressive rock music or The Moody Blues music." The show also features a special video and recording by Graeme Edge of his poems "Morning Glory," and "Late Lament." Jon Davison of YES also joins Lodge on stage to perform the classic songs, "Nights in White Satin," and "Tuesday Afternoon."

Days of Future Passed was released 56 years ago, and was arguably the start of progressive rock. These songs began the long standing cross-over between rock and classical music, and The Moody Blues shows were always known for recreating this incredible sound, and for the wonderful atmosphere. Lodge has surrounded himself with a band that are equally passionate, who put simply, love performing together and who appreciate and respect the legacy of the music. The electrifying show will also be in support of Lodge's album Days of Future Passed—My Sojourn, available now on CD and all streaming services, with a limited edition 180g Red Gold vinyl album available.

Joining Lodge on stage is his 10,000 Light Years Band, long term collaborator Alan Hewitt (Music Director and Keyboards) and Billy Ashbaugh (Drums) from The Moody Blues touring band, together with Duffy King (Guitars), and Jason Charboneau (Cello).

John Lodge is bass guitarist, vocalist, and songwriter for the iconic Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame 2018 inductees, The Moody Blues. Songwriter of such mega Moody Blues hits from “Ride My See-Saw,” to “I’m Just A Singer (In A Rock and Roll Band),” “Isn’t Life Strange,” and many more. Lodge has been performing and recording with The Moody Blues for more than five decades, selling in excess of 70 million albums, as well as releasing his three solo albums Natural Avenue, 10,000 Light Years Ago, and BYond.
