Moody Blues fans have lots to look forward to from the 2018 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nominees in the coming weeks. Along with the upcoming U.S. winter leg of their Days Of Future Passed 50th Anniversary Tour, the legendary British prog-rockers are offering a TV concert special, which will air over the holiday season.
Billboard reports on Nov. 30 that "Days of Future Passed Live" features the multi-platinum sellers performing their groundbreaking 1967 studio album Days of Future Passed in its entirety as part of the public broadcasting network's popular concert series “Great Performances.” The special was filmed during a 2017 summer tour stop on July 7 in Toronto at Sony Centre.
The “Question” hitmakers perform Days of Future Past with a full orchestra live for the first time, recreating the landmark album with narration provided by veteran English actor Jeremy Irons. Along with beloved “Future Passed” classics like “Nights in White Satin” and “Tuesday Afternoon,” The Moodies also perform a selection of other greatest hits like “I’m Just a Singer (in a Rock and Roll Band)” “Your Wildest Dreams” and “The Story in Your Eyes.”
