As the Moody Blues continue their current American tour on which they’re performing the whole of their classic 1967 album, Eagle Rock Entertainment have announced the 23 March release of Days Of Future Passed Live. It will be available on DVD, Blu-ray and as a two-CD set, and comes in the wake of the 50th anniversary deluxe reissue of the album itself.
This performance of the famous concept work took place at the Sony Centre For The Performing Arts in Toronto, where the Moody Blues were accompanied by a full orchestra. Filmed in high definition, the concert begins with the band on stage by themselves, for an opening selection of some of the most loved songs in the rest of their catalogue, such as ‘Your Wildest Dreams,’ ‘Isn’t Life Strange, ‘I Know You’re Out There Somewhere’ and ‘The Story In Your Eyes.’
For the second part of the show, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 2018 inductees are joined by the orchestra for the complete Days Of Future Passed, from ‘The Day Begins’ to ‘The Night (Finale).’ The voice of Oscar-winning actor Jeremy Irons is heard on the two spoken word tracks, ‘Morning Glory’ and ‘Late Lament.’ The show closes with encores of two more band staples, ‘Question’ and ‘Ride My See-Saw.’
The release will also include a bonus feature, Remembering Days Of Future Passed, which contains new interviews with longtime Moody Blues linchpins Justin Hayward, John Lodge and co-founder Graeme Edge. The drummer features in uDiscover’s two-part interview special, here and here.
