King Center Presents John Lodge and The 10,000 Light Years Band

King Center for the Performing Arts

The Moody Blues bass player and vocalist, John Lodge, is delighted to bring his first ever Solo tour to the King Center. Following the release of '10,000 Light Years Ago' (his second solo album) in 2015, John jumped at the opportunity to put a band together, and take the new music to the stage. The album has received critical acclaim, and In My Mind was nominated for Anthem of the Year in Prog Mag, and concerts in the UK brought the audience to their feet.

As a member of The Moody Blues since 1966, John Lodge has spent much of his life touring the World, as part of a 'rock n roll band'.
His first solo album was released 38 years ago in 1977, but was never played live. When asked what has taken him so long to get his own show on the road, John was quick to point out, with a smile, that he has been busy with his "other band", and making wine!

Joining John on stage will be his 10,000 Light Years Band, including long time collaborators Alan Hewitt (Keyboards) and Norda Mullen (Flute) from the Moody Blues; Gordon Marshall (Drums), formerly Moody Blues; 20 time Detroit Music Award nominee guitarist Duffy King (Guitar) and Jared Burnett (Six-string Violin). This band has been specially put together for these USA dates, and together they will be creating an amazing sound that will bring John’s solo album '10,000 Light Years Ago', and his songs from the Moody Blues, to life in a way you’ve never heard before.

During his remarkable career, John Lodge has sold over 70 million albums and received many awards from the ASCAP (American Society Of Composers & Publishers); Lodge has also won a Soundtrack Of The Year Award, been voted one of the 10 most influential bass players on the planet, and won an Ivor Novello Award. This is your chance to see him up close and personal in the intimate setting of the Studio Theatre.
