An Evening with The Moody Blues’ John Lodge
Performs Classic Moody Blues Hits
Wednesday, November 13 at 8 p.m.
John Lodge is the legendary bass player, songwriter and vocalist of The Moody Blues and recent inductee into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
During his remarkable 52 years with The Moody Blues, Lodge has sold more than 70 million albums including the groundbreaking Days of Future Passed, and has composed many of their biggest hits. The album Seventh Sojurn was Billboard’s number one for five weeks, with Lodge writing both singles from the album, the high-energy “I’m Just a Singer (in a Rock and Roll Band)” and the beautiful and ethereal “Isn’t Life Strange.”
Lodge has received numerous awards including being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, ASCAP (American Society Of Composers & Publishers) and receiving an Ivor Novello for Outstanding Contribution to Music. Lodge has also been voted one of the 10 most influential bass players on the planet.
As a member of The Moody Blues since 1966, John Lodge has spent much of his life touring the world, as part of a rock ’n roll band. His first solo album titled Natural Avenue was released 40 years ago, but was never performed live. His second solo album, 10,000 Light Years Ago was released in 2015, and was followed by a 2018 live album Live from Birmingham - The 10,000 Light Years Tour. The current tour will support his best-of album B Yond, featuring three new songs and two new remixes, together with other songs carefully curated by John from his career. The album features artwork by Roger Dean, continuing their long artistic relationship.
In Lodge’s words, “Music is my life and I can’t wait to get on the road with the 10,000 Light Years Band… I am a ‘Moody Blue’, I always will be, and the fans and I have travelled this road a long time so I hope they will continue with me as we keep the Moody Blues music alive. And I hope new fans will discover and explore along with us as we go B Yond.”
