To celebrate the 50th anniversary of their landmark album Days of Future Passed — and its hits, “Nights in White Satin” and “Tuesday Afternoon” — The Moody Blues will play it in its entirety on a tour that will come to the PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel, July 13. Tickets, priced from $26 to $126, go on sale March 3 at 10 a.m.; visit livenation.com.
The band will perform other hits in the first half of the show, and Days of Future Passed in the second.
In a press release, singer and guitarist Justin Hayward said: “Little did we know when we made Days of Future Passed that it would eventually change our lives — it took five long years to make it to the top of the charts. But we mustn’t take all the credit for this remarkable project — there were many creative minds who contributed at the time, and who believed in us when we were young and inexperienced. We just wrote the songs — about every-man
“My dearest wish is that maybe the album has made the world a better place. It will be a joy to return to it, live.”
The band’s current lineup includes three members from the time of Days of Future Passed: Hayward, drummer Graeme Edge and bassist-vocalist John Lodge.
