John Lodge Announces the release of his Live Album: Live from Birmingham, The 10,000 Light Years Tour.
September 5, 2017
Pre-sale starts at 9am (UK time) on Thursday 7th September, for release on October 20th at http://www.pledgemusic.com/projects/john-lodge-live-from-birmingham.
In September 2016, John Lodge, legendary bass player, song writer and vocalist of The Moody Blues, embarked on a solo tour for the first time in his 50+ year career. John, and his 10,000 Light Years Band, travelled around England, without the huge support team he would normally have with the Moody Blues, playing smaller venues, visiting new places, and the response took his breath way.
The last night of that tour was at the Birmingham Town Hall, John’s home town, where the concert was filmed and recorded. This show is now being released as a live album, with artwork designed by Roger Dean, and with exclusive tour merchandise from the 2016 tour, plus a few special surprises, also available (please note some of the limited edition pieces will be held back until 12pm (UK time).
John features tracks from his solo album, 10,000 Light Years Ago, and captures the heart of classic Moody Blues’ songs like ‘I’m Just a Singer (in a Rock and Roll Band),’ ‘Ride My See-Saw,’ ‘Isn’t Life Strange,’ and the never before played live, ‘Candle of Life,’ and more. There is also the classic Blue Jays’ song, ’Saved By The Music’.
The CD/DVD package features the full live show on both CD and DVD, with the DVD bringing an additional ‘Journey to Birmingham’ film – available in both NSTC (for US and Canada) and PAL (for Europe and Asia) DVD formats.
The Limited Edition Vinyl features the full live show in a gatefold package on heavyweight 180g red coloured double vinyl, and will be shipped later in November.
All CD/DVD and vinyl orders via pledge come with a free download of the album, available upon release.
The box set will also be available from October 20th at Amazon.co.uk, and to download from iTunes etc.
