One of the fine singers with the legendary group The Moody Blues, Hayward does not tour solo very often. But with his presence, musical skills and songbook, he can fill any hall, anywhere. Now – we have news of UK dates…

 

Live Nation / Kennedy Street are delighted to announce that legendary singer-songwriter Justin Hayward will bring his ‘In Concert’ solo tour to the UK in May and June 2018. The possessor of one of the most recognisable voices in rock, Justin will be performing solo hits as well of a collection of his songs with the Moody Blues, who are among this year’s inductees to the legendary Rock & Roll Hall of Fame! Support on all dates will come from Mike Dawes. The Moody Blues themselves release ‘Days Of Future Passed Live’ through Eagle Rock in March 2018.

Justin himself said, “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 also to tell the real stories behind all the songs and the events that surrounded them at the time.

It’s a joy to share a stage with such wonderful young and inspiring talents as Mike Dawes (one of a new generation of brilliant young guitar masters – worth the price of admission alone) 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”.

As the driving force behind The Moody Blues, Justin penned classics like Nights in White Satin, New Horizons, Question, The Voice and Your Wildest Dreams. Justin’s solo career began in 1977 with Songwriter. In ‘78 Justin had a worldwide hit with the timeless Forever Autumn from the War of the Worlds. In 1980, Justin released his second solo album Night Flight, a mixture of his own songs and those of other writers. His last solo studio album was the critically-acclaimed All The Way in 2017.
