Moody Blues' Justin Hayward Announces Solo Tour Dates
The announced dates for the trek will kick off on August 20th in Salisbury, MA at Blue Ocean Music Hall and conclude on August 30th in Morristown, NJ at the Mayo Performing Arts Center.
Hayward's tour will also be making stops in Boston (August 21st), Harford (Aug 25th ), Bethlehem (Aug 26th), Alexandria (Aug 27th) and Annapolis (Aug 29th).
He had this to say about the tour and his band, "We are so looking forward to this tour. Julie Ragins [keyboardist/background vocalist], Mike Dawes [acoustic guitar], and I have been overwhelmed by the reception of our live shows during this last year in the USA.
"To hear every nuance of my acoustic guitars (they are on the road for the first time) and our voices in these venues is a joy. And the USA, like me, is discovering what a fabulous guitar player Mike Dawes is, and I look forward to hearing him play every night too."
Hayward will be touring in support of his live DVD, CD, and Blu-ray "Spirits…Live - Live At The Buckhead Theatre," which was released this past summer by Eagle Rock and premiered on PBS last month and is scheduled for re-airings for the rest of the year.
He had this to say about the broadcasts, "It is a privilege and honor that PBS is broadcasting my live show as part of their pledge drives. PBS has always meant a lot to me - not only for the quality of its programming but for its news, independence, and integrity…a true great comfort to me while I'm on the road."
