Moody Blues Announce 2013 U.S. Tour
The Moody Blues have announced the dates for their 2013 U.S. tour, which starts in late September and runs through the beginning of November. The veteran band will play nearly 30 dates during the two-month road trip.
The tour coincides with the release of a new career-spanning box set on the band, which will come out on June 25. The 17-disc 'Timeless Flight' includes, among other things, 11 CDs, six DVDs and Moody Blues memorabilia. The CDs will feature remastered album tracks, previously unreleased alternate mixes, outtakes and live recordings. The DVDs will feature rarely seen TV appearances, promo videos and some previously unreleased concert footage.
The set also includes three DVD-Audio discs with 5.1 surround-sound mixes of the classic Moody Blues albums that the band released between 1967 through 1972: 'Days of Future Passed,' 'On the Threshold of a Dream,' 'To Our Children's Children's Children,' 'A Question of Balance,' 'Every Good Boy Deserves Favour' and 'Seventh Sojourn.'
There will also be a four-disc version of the box for those of us who aren't filthy rich. The band fan site Moody Blues Today has a breakdown of what's included in each set.
Three months after the release, the band will launch its tour in Louisville and wrap up with a series of California shows in late October and early November. You can see the full itinerary below.
