2018 Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame inductees THE MOODY BLUES celebrate the 50th anniversary of “Days Of Future Passed” on March 23. Their performance at the Sony Centre For The Performing Arts In Toronto comes alive on DVD, Blu-ray, 2CD, 2LP, and digital formats with the release of “Days Of Future Passed Live”.
The band is accompanied by a full orchestra, performing stunning renditions of classic songs such as “Nights In White Satin”, “Tuesday Afternoon (Forever Afternoon)”, “I’m Just A Singer (In A Rock And Roll Band)” and “Isn’t Life Strange”.
In addition to performing “Days Of Future Passed” in its entirety, THE MOODY BLUES (Justin Hayward, John Lodge and Graeme Edge) not only featured voice-overs by Oscar-winning actor Jeremy Irons on “Morning Glory” and “Late Lament”, but completed the set with encore songs “Question” and “Ride My See-Saw”. Originally airing on PBS, “Days Of Future Passed Live” is now packaged with the bonus feature “Remembering Days Of Future Passed”, which includes brand new interviews with Justin Hayward, John Lodge and Graeme Edge.
Asked by Guitar World magazine if he ever thought THE MOODY BLUES would one day be inducted into the Rock Hall, Hayward said: “To be honest, I kind of doubted it, because it had been so long. But when it finally happened, I was absolutely thrilled. For MOODY BLUES fans, it’s galvanized the music they love. I’m very pleased for them and for us. It’s a privilege to be in the same street as Buddy Holly and THE EVERLY BROTHERS, and then to have Nina Simone inducted posthumously at the same time makes the whole thing complete. She was such a huge influence on me in my late teens and early twenties.”
