THE MOODY BLUES FANTASTIC MUSICAL JOURNEY NYCB THEATRE AT WESTBURY, NY 3-27-15 Through the years, English Rock band The Moody Blues have been one of the most innovative in the genre. Setting course over five decades ago as one of the pioneers in Progressive Rock, fusing in Classic elements, The Moody Blues have sold over fifty-five million record worldwide and achieved an amazing eighteen platinum and gold albums. While the faces of the members may have changed through the years, original drummer Graeme Edge, along with long-time vocalist/bassist John Lodge, as well as guitarist Justin Hayward, remains the band’s nucleus as they continue to tour internationally. Despite having not released any new material since their final album in 2003, entitled December, the band still captures the imagination of a range of generations as they perform their classic material. Now in 2015, The Moody Blues return to North America for what they are calling the Timeless Flight — The Polydor Years tour in support of the The Polydor Years 1986-1992 collection released on November 24, 2014. Kicked off in Worcester, MA on March 19th, The Moody Blues found themselves at NYCB Theatre in Westbury, NY on Friday March 27th. A familiar surrounding for the band, they have graced the in-the-round stage many times prior, and see Long Island as a place of comfort. With the initial show selling out quickly, a second, as well as third performance was announced for March 28th and 29th. As vehicles arrived at the packed NYCB Theatre at Westbury on the opening night of The Moody Blues’ weekend stay, the parking lot was overwhelmed, and judging by the buzz of enthusiasm, no one seemed to mind as they were ready for a magical evening.
