Veteran cosmic rockers The Moody Blues will launch their first Canadian tour in nearly 10 years this fall.

Beginning with two U.S. warm-up dates starting September 12 in New Hampshire, the band will then play 16 Canadian shows, wrapping up on October 8 in Victoria, British Columbia.

The 'Precious Cargo' tour celebrates the release of a new 'Icon' greatest hits collection from the band, which will be released in July, available in both single and double disc configurations.
