Tuesday Tune: The Moody Blues

February 16, 2016

The Moody Blues band has been bringing groundbreaking music to rock, pop and even classical music fans for decades! You may have seen them here in Charlotte before and we bet you aren’t going to miss it next month, if that’s the case. But if you haven’t heard, they return to the Queen City with the “Fly Me High Tour” on March 28 at Belk Theater at Blumenthal Performing Arts Center.

The band just recently celebrated the 45th anniversary of its monumental 1967 album, “Days of Future Passed,” which features “Nights in White Satin,” one of the first four-minute songs played on the radio. It became one of the biggest selling singles in history and hit No. 1 three separate times on Billboard. The releases include The Moody Blues’ legendary hits and fan favorites from their 14 studio albums that have spanned more than 35 years of music.

Since they first hit the rock scene, The Moody Blues have continued to produce music that bridges the gap between rock, classical and pop-rock genres without wavering in their integrity and commitment. Featuring the altruistic inflections of guitarist/vocalist Justin Hayward, bassist/vocalist John Lodge and drummer Graeme Edge, The Moody Blues’ sound has held its ground with exquisite harmonies over and over again, in a genre of music that is ever-changing.

The Moody Blues have sold in excess of 70 million albums worldwide and have been awarded an astonishing 14 platinum and gold discs. Their incredible roster of hits include: “Nights In White Satin,” “Tuesday Afternoon,” “Ride My See Saw,” “The Story In Your Eyes,” “Isn’t Life Strange,” “Question,” “I’m Just A Singer (In A Rock And Roll Band),” “Your Wildest Dreams,” and “I Know You’re Out There Somewhere,” to name a few.
