Moody Blues vocalist and guitarist Justin Hayward has lined up 13 dates across England and Wales for later this year.
He’ll perform a selection of tracks from his latest album All The Way along with Moody Blues favourites on The Wind Of Heaven tour. Support will be provided by Mike Dawes.
Hayward says: “I’m always so thrilled to have the opportunity to tour in the UK – particularly at this time in in my career when no one knows what the future holds.
“I’m bringing my ‘song-writing’ guitars from home on the road with me, so the gigs will have the feel and sound of my music room along with the vibe I was feeling as I wrote the songs.
“I look forward to singing and playing new songs and old songs, particularly Forever Autumn, which I only get to perform in my solo show, and The Wind Of Heaven from the forthcoming movie – and also to tell the real stories behind all the songs and the events that surrounded them at the time.”
Hayward adds: “It’s a joy to share a stage with such wonderful young and inspiring talents as Mike Dawes and Julie Ragins, a truly exceptional musician and singer.
“She and I have shared stages all over the world for many years, loving the music we play, both with the Moody Blues and solo. I look forward to seeing you on the road.”
