Nights on the Road
Live Nation is delighted to announce the "Nights On The Road" tour from The Moody Blues, for forty years one of the most enduring and consistent groups in the world. Their remarkable music has enthralled generations of fans since the 1960’s and their recorded legacy contains some of the most important and ground breaking work in the history of popular music, having generated over 55 million sales throughout the world. The Moody Blues - Justin Hayward, John Lodge and Graeme Edge - carry on their magical musical legacy from generation to generation, year after year. "I suppose that it is our songs, and the way we interpret them that has seen us travel so far," says Justin Hayward. "It means so much to us that some of our recordings have really meant something to people." Moody Blues fans should also watch out for a CD release from Eagle Rock Entertainment on 25 August 2008 of "Live At The Isle Of Wight 1970", which captures the magic of the band onstage in front of an audience estimated at over half a million. The legacy of The Moody Blues continues to live on, as the band tours throughout the world, delighting their loyal fans. "We found early success in an era when freedom of expression was everything," says Justin Hayward. "Then it became important for us to capture that moment of inspiration and that spark of magic that we had found through songwriting and recording, and to re-live it with an audience every time we go on stage. It’s a feeling that I personally never want to give up having. We’re so glad to still be on this journey" A legendary band with an enviable repertoire and reputation, The Moody Blues remain one of the top-grossing album and touring bands in existence. Graeme Edge explains the continuing popularity of the group thus; "It’s all about the music. The music is everything for us. We’ve always put the music before anything else, and that’s why I think we’ve been able to endure for so long."
