John Lodge Of The Moody Blues: The 10,000 Light Years Tour Comes To Egg Center In Albany On Saturday, Oct. 28

Bookmark and Share
Los Angeles, CA…John Lodge, legendary bass player, songwriter and vocalist of The Moody Blues, will embark on his first ever solo tour of the U.S. titled “John Lodge of The Moody Blues: The 10,000 Light Years Tour” that will begin on October 26 in Vienna, VA and continue through November 8 in New York City. Following the release of 10,000 Light Years Ago (his second solo album), which was released in 2015, John toured the U.K., but this tour marks his first in America. 10,000 Light Years Ago has received critical acclaim, and his song, ‘In My Mind,’ was nominated for “Anthem of the Year” in Prog Mag.

Lodge is looking forward to now bringing this solo tour to the U.S., saying, “You go into a room with an idea…and then being able to take it on the road and perform it live, really is a massive thrill.” In addition to performing tracks from his solo album, 10,000 Light Years Ago, John will capture the heart of classic Moody Blues songs he has penned and recorded with The Moodies such as “I’m Just a Singer (in a Rock and Roll Band),” “Gemini Dream,” “Ride My Seesaw,” “Isn’t Life Strange,” and the never before played live, “Candle of Life.”

Joining Lodge on stage will be his “10,000 Light Years Band,” specially put together for the U.S. dates, including long time collaborators Alan Hewitt (keyboards/music director) and Norda Mullen (flute) from The Moody Blues; Gordon Marshall (drums), formerly Moody Blues; and 20 time Detroit Music Award nominee guitarist Duffy King (guitar).

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 in 1977, but was never performed live. When asked what has taken him so long to get his own show on the road, John was quick to point out, with a smile, that he has been busy with his "other band”…

During the UK tour in 2016, Lodge’s hometown concert in Birmingham was filmed and recorded; and on September 7, the box set CVD/CD titled JOHN LODGE: LIVE FROM BIRMINGHAM – THE 10,000 LIGHT YEARS TOUR”, with artwork designed by Roger Dean, will be available for pre-order via Pledge Music, with a release to follow on October 18. A limited double gatefold 180g Red Vinyl album will also be released on November 20. Check out the video trailer here: HERE.

During his remarkable career with the Moody Blues, Lodge has sold more than 70 million albums and received many awards from the ASCAP (American Society Of Composers & Publishers); Lodge has also won a Soundtrack Of The Year Award, been voted one of the 10 most influential bass players on the planet, and won an Ivor Novello Award. Lodge also has a wine line titled “Krisemma Wine,” which has won several prestigious international awards.
