Justin Hayward Presents Stage Door
June 7, 2016 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm| $29 - $78
Justin Hayward has chalked up nearly fifty years at the peak of the music and entertainment industry and his voice has been heard the world over. Known principally as the vocalist, lead guitarist and composer for The Moody Blues, his is an enduring talent that has helped to define the times in which he worked. Over the last forty-five years the band has sold fifty five million albums and received numerous awards. Commercial success has gone hand in hand with critical acclaim, The Moody Blues are renowned the world over as innovators and trail blazers who have influenced any number of fellow artists. Justin is honored with The Moody Blues on the Rock Walk Hall of Fame on Sunset Boulevard.
Having started the ball rolling as a songwriter in his own right with a couple of solo singles, he joined The Moody Blues in the summer of 1966. Hitting his stride immediately with the single ‘Fly Me High’, he followed it up with the classic hit songs ‘Nights in White Satin’ and ‘Tuesday Afternoon’ from the seminal album ‘Days of Future Past’. This album went on to become a favourite of the NASA astronauts and was taken aboard the Atlantis shuttle space craft by Chief astronaut “Hoot” Gibson on many missions.
This purple patch showed no sign of abating as Justin created other classic, era and genre-defining hits ‘Question’, ‘The Voice’, ‘I Know You’re Out There Somewhere’ and ‘Your Wildest Dreams’. These laid the foundation for the incredible success story of The Moody Blues – as well as his solo work – which continues to this day.
“I have spent most of my life, so far, on the road”, says Justin. “Playing live and creating a small piece of magic in a room is like a drug to me, one that I never want to give up”. His is a talent that has helped soundtrack more than a generation and created a legacy that remains undimmed.
Joining Justin Hayward as supporting act and in his ensemble is guitar virtuoso Mike Dawes.
