The Moody Blues – Live at Glasgow Armadillo (3rd October 2006)

Three old guys and their live backing band.

Two hours of music chosen from a career spanning 40 years.

Different Class.

During the first half of the gig they rattled through plenty of quality tunes including my mum’s favoutite (for she was there with me), “Never Comes The Day”.

After the half time beer break they dove straight in to a selection of my favourite Moody tunes: Forever Autumn, Higher and Higher, I’m Just a Singer (In a Rock And Roll Band), Question and, of course, Nights In White Satin.

The Moody Blues are, without a doubt, one of the finest bands still playing today.

Messers Hayward, Lodge and Edge are three of the best musicians I have ever had the pleasure to see live and it’s great to know that after all these years that they’re still doing what they’re good at.

And before I forget, during the intermission I got talking to an American guy who had come over from the States for the day JUST for the concert. If that isn’t dedication, I don’t know what is.
