Moody Blues – Seattle : April 22 2015

The moody Blues put on a great show Tuesday night at the Paramount in Seattle. I was a little apprehensive as their music is such that the vocals need to work right to give it the sound that is so distinctive. I was’t disappointed at all. They sounded great, and the band was just incredible. The background singers (who also seemed to play almost every instrument imaginable) did a great job of rounding out the vocals of Justin Hayward and John Lodge. All three of the guys, including Graeme Edge performed with surprising agility given they are all around 70. It is hard to believe that they are into the 51st year as being a band…how incredible is that!

Some of my favorite songs of the night were their opening “Gemini Dream” followed by “The Voice” and then of course their hugely popular “Tuesday Afternoon“, “I’m Just a Singer (In a Rock and Roll Band)” and “I Know You’re Out There Somewhere“. By far though, my absolute favorites of the night were “Nights in White Satin” and “Isn’t Life Strange”. All together they played 19 songs in two sets with one encore.

Great old sixties/seventies progressive rock music.
