Fifty years after John Lodge and Justin Hayward joined forces in the lineup, timeless progressive rock legends The Moody Blues are hitting the road yet again, and this time, they’ll be spending copious amounts of time right here in the Sunshine State. This is a can’t miss opportunity to see one of the most accomplished rock bands in history in a cozy intimate setting.
Making the tour even more special is the core of long standing members headlining the “Fly Me High” tour. We’ll see Justin Hayward (Guitars, vocals), John Lodge (Bass, vocals) and original drummer Graeme Edge. “2016 is the 50th anniversary of John and myself joining the band, and one of the first things we did together that year was record ‘Fly Me High’ at our own expense at Regent Sound Studios,” offered Hayward.
The tour kicks off March 3rd in Hollywood, Florida, and then soars across the state for seven more nights before traversing the country. They hit Orlando’s amazing Dr. Phillips Center For The Performing Arts on March 8th, which should be a memorable night in a great venue. Full tour schedule is provided below.

Here’s a flashback to that first collaboration. Not their greatest hit, but a fun tune, and a sign of things to come just before the band exploded onto the rock music scene with the release of their iconic album Days Of Future Passed which is one of our Top 25 Rock Albums of All-Time:
The band has lived to epitomize the Veteran COsmic Rockers original member Ray Thomas wrote about three decades ago on their fantastic 1981 album Long Distance Voyager.
He struts, he strolls
His love is rock ‘n’ roll
He’s the VETERAN COSMIC ROCKER
See you on the road!
