Past Event
The Moody Blues’ John Lodge Past Event

John Lodge, legendary bass player, songwriter and vocalist of The Moody Blues and recent inductee into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, is bringing his ’10,000 Light Years’ solo tour to Cadogan Hall. This is a unique opportunity to see John perform his Moody Blues hits, and some of his solo work, plus a few special treats that are sure to delight both fans and music lovers alike.

John will appear with his 10,000 Light Years Band, and together they capture the heart of classic Moody Blues songs he has penned and recorded such as I’m Just a Singer (in a Rock and Roll Band)Gemini DreamRide My SeesawIsn’t Life StrangeSteppin’ in a Slide ZonePeak HourEvening Time (the latter two from Days of Future Passed), and the never before played live, Candle of Life.

John will also perform songs from his solo album 10,000 Light Years Ago. This album received critical acclaim, and his song, In My Mind, was nominated for ‘Anthem of the Year’ in Prog Mag. John will also be performing special treats such as Saved by the Music from the Blue Jaysalbum, and Legend of a Mind dedicated to Ray Thomas. This is a not-to-be-missed show full of beautifully crafted songs, great energy and sound, and a fantastic atmosphere that will ‘bring the audience to their feet’.

Joining John on stage are long-term collaborator Alan Hewitt (music director and keyboards) and Billy Ashbaugh (drums) from the Moody Blues touring band, together with Duffy King (guitars) and Jason Charboneau (cello), and the ‘all-American band sizzled on the solo tracks and Moodies’ masterpieces’, on their recent tour (North Coast Voice).

When asked what took 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’.

In John’s words: ‘Music is my life and I can’t wait to get on the road with my 10,000 Light Years Band… the venues are smaller and more intimate, but I love live concerts – “have bass will travel”, that’s the gypsy in me. I’ll always be a ‘Moody Blue’, but I love getting the chance to perform songs that I have never performed before, and of course classic Moody Blue songs. The fans and I have travelled this road a long time and I also hope new fans will discover and explore along with us.’
