Moody Blues To Mark 50th Anniversary Of Day Of Future Passed With Tour

The Moody Blues will return to North America in June and July to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of their album Days of Future Passed.

The show will be divided into two halves with their greatest hits during the first act and a full playing of Days of Future Passed in the second.

Released in November of 1967, Days of Future Passed was the Moody Blues second album and their first where they merged rock music with a full symphony orchestra. Credited as an early example of progressive rock music, the band only performed at the same time as the orchestra in the last section of Nights in White Satin. Otherwise, they were alternating passages.

At the time of its release, Nights in White Satin was not a hit in the U.S. and peaked at 19 in the U.K. The follow-up, Tuesday Afternoon, went to 24 on the Hot 100. Nights was re-released in 1972 to much greater success, going to 9 in the U.K. and 2 in the U.S.

Justin Hayward said of the album “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 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.”
