John Lodge, bassist, songwriter and vocalist of The Moody Blues, and recent inductee into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, will embark on his second solo tour of the U.S. Titled “The Moody Blues’ John Lodge:  The 10,000 Light Years Tour,” the tour begins on Oct. 12 in Nashvile, Tenn., and continues through Oct. 23, in Arlington, Mass.  The tour will support Lodge‘s album Live from Birmingham, released in October 2017, featuring his classic Moody Blues hits, and some of this solo work from his 2015 studio album 10,000 Light Years Ago.

Lodge is looking forward to now bringing this solo tour to the U.S., saying in a press release, “Music is my life and I can’t wait to get on the road with my 10,000 Light Years Band… the venues are smaller and more intimate, but I love live concerts. ‘Have bass will travel,’ that’s the gypsy in me.  I’ll always be a ‘Moody Blue,’ but I love getting the chance to perform songs that I have never performed before, and of course classic Moody Blue songs. The fans and I have travelled this road a long time and I also hope new fans will discover and explore along with us.”

Joining Lodge on stage will be his 10,000 Light Years Band, specially put together for the U.S. dates, including longtime collaborator Alan Hewitt (keyboards/music director).

Lodge’s live album and DVD were recorded during his 2016 U.K. tour in his hometown of Birmingham.  Artwork was designed by Roger Dean, and is available as DVD/CD box set, 180g double red vinyl, and download.
