The Moody Blues have released many iconic albums, but they've never performed one of them in its entirety in concert -- despite being asked to by many promoters. But that's about to change.
At its peak, the band had four singers, and primary singer Justin Hayward has long felt that two of those now-former members, Mike Pinder and Ray Thomas, are better suited to do their own songs.
But when the Moodies embark on the 50th anniversary tour of their breakthrough album, Days of Future Passed, they'll play it in its entirety during the second half of each show. Hayward and bassist John Lodge will split the vocals.
The tour will begin in the late spring. At the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles on June 17th, they'll be backed by the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra.
