The British Invasion combo is responsible in large part for
proliferating a sweeping, strings-heavy, orchestrated pop style in the
late ’60s and ’70s. They’ve sold more than 70 million albums worldwide.
Fans can expect carefully arranged renditions of most of the hits,
including “Nights in White Satin,” “I’m Just a Singer (In a Rock ’n’
Roll Band),” and “Your Wildest Dreams.”
Tickets for the Moody show are available for $76, $66, and $56 (plus applicable fees) at the Coliseum box office, ticketmaster.com, Ticketmaster outlets (including select Publix grocery stores), and by phone at (800) 745-3000.

I don't suppose there is even the smallest chance that they will come west this year?
Yeah I'm sorta hoping they'll offer some touring and Storyteller shows elsewhere in the country. Florida is about as far from ME as you can get and still in the Continental US. I could use a Moody vacation.........
Big Concerts is proud
to announce that the legendary English rock band, “The Moody Blues”, is
set to perform in South Africa next year. Accompanied by Special
Guests, “10cc” and “Procol Harum”, the much anticipated tour is
scheduled for the 30th May 2012 at the Grand Arena, Grand West in Cape
Town and the 1st June 2012 at the Coca-Cola Dome in Johannesburg. This
performance is presented by Heart 104.9 FM, Jacaranda 94.2 and SABC3.
Since they first hit the rock scene with the release of their
monumental 1967 album DAYS OF FUTURE PASSED, The Moody Blues have
continued to produce music that bridges the gap between classical and
pop-rock genres without ever wavering in their integrity and
commitment. Featuring the altruistic inflections of guitarist/vocalist
Justin Hayward, bassist/vocalist John Lodge and drummer Graeme Edge, The
Moody Blues’ sound has held its ground with exquisite harmonies over
and over again, in a genre of music that is ever-changing. Since their
formation in England, The Moody Blues have created music time and time
again that offers rock music a depth that is unprecedented and
The Moody Blues have sold in excess of 70 million albums worldwide
and have been awarded an astonishing fourteen platinum and gold discs.
Their incredible roster of hits include: “Nights In White Satin,” “Ride
My See Saw,” “The Story In Your Eyes,” “Isn’t Life Strange,”
“Question,” “I’m Just A Singer (In A Rock And Roll Band),” “Your Wildest
Dreams,” and “I Know You’re Out There Somewhere,” to name a few. The
Moody Blues’ No. 1, Top 5, Top 10, Top 20, Top 40, Multi-Platinum,
Platinum and Gold albums and singles, have generated sold-out tours on a
consistent basis over the course of several decades, making them one of
the top-grossing album and touring bands in existence.
Celebrating their 45-year career, this British Invasion of the 60s,
that is still recording and touring, has made a special holiday
collection. During the 1990’s The Moody Blues recorded its only
Christmas-themed album, “December” featuring their unmistakable lush and
melodic sound. As a special holiday treat, the “December” CD is now
available online at http://moodyblues.qcommerce.com – perfect timing for
“The Moody Blues are still the Sistine Chapel of popular music.” – Rolling Stone
Deriving their name from the metric total of semen ejaculated by the
average male, the tongue-in-cheek British art-pop band 10cc will be the
Special Guests on this tour. Noted for their studio polish, advanced
musicianship, impeccable vocal performances, and clever lyrics, 10cc
first became successful for their classic singles that often parodied
classic rock styles or satirized modern life. 10cc have sold more than
30 million albums worldwide on the strength of hits such as “Dreadlock
Holiday”, “I’m Not In Love”, “Things We Do For Love” and “Donna”. 10cc
feature the original members Graham Gouldman on bass, guitars, vocals
and Rick Fenn on lead guitar, vocals, and bass.
Procol Harum are a British rock band, formed in 1967, which
contributed to the development of progressive rock, and by extension,
symphonic rock. Their best-known recording is their 1967 single "A
Whiter Shade of Pale" along with other hit songs “Homberg”, “A Salty
Dog” and “Conquistador”.
