Rock legends The Moody Blues have announced their 2016 spring “Fly Me High” tour will include a stop at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre on March 11. Tickets will go on sale at 10 a.m. Nov. 13.
Since the ’60s, as a part of the historic British invasion of supergroups, The Moody Blues have lit up the hearts and minds of millions of rock fans with inspiring anthems like “Night in White Satin,” “Tuesday Afternoon” and “I’m Just A Singer (in a Rock and Roll Band).” From being immortalized on “The Simpsons” to having their music featured in movies, television and in national advertisement campaigns such as Visa, The Moody Blues are embedded in not only music history but in pop culture.
Last year, the group celebrated the 45th anniversary of their monumental 1967 album, “Days of Future Passed,” which features “Night in White Satin,” one of the first four-minute songs played on the radio, becoming one of the biggest-selling singles in history and hitting No. 1 three separate times on Billboard music charts. Since they first hit the scene, The Moody Blues have continued to produce music that bridges the gap between rock, classical and pop-rock genres without ever wavering in their integrity and commitment.
Featuring guitarist/vocalist Justin Hayward, bassist/vocalist John Lodge and drummer Graeme Edge, The Moody Blues has been at the forefront of the classic rock music scene with its multiplatinum, platinum and gold albums and singles hitting Billboard’s music charts.
The Moody Blues’ illustrious roster of hits also includes: “Ride My See Saw,” “The Story In Your Eyes,” “Isn’t Life Strange,” “Question,” “Your Wildest Dreams” and many more.
The band named the 2016 tour “Fly Me High” to mark the 50th anniversary of Justin Hayward and John Lodge joining Graeme Edge, Ray Thomas and Mike Pinder as lead guitarist and bassist for the iconic band.
