Justin Hayward Announces Schedule For Upcoming U.S. Summer Tour

Justin Hayward will perform at a handful of U.S. dates this summer.

Hayward, who is known best for his work with legendary band The Moody Blues, will embark on an eight-date solo tour of the Northeast beginning August 20th in Salisbury, Massachusetts. It will come on the heels of a UK run in July. Hayward said of the upcoming tour, “We are so looking forward to this tour,” noting that fans’ reaction to the live shows put on by Hayward and his band mates—Julie Ragins (keyboards, backing vocals) and Mike Dawes (acoustic guitar)—played a role in the decision to bring the music to the fans again. “Julie Ragins [keyboardist/background vocalist], Mike Dawes [acoustic guitar], and I have been overwhelmed by the reception of our live shows during this last year in the USA,” he said. To hear every nuance of my acoustic guitars (they are on the road for the first time) and our voices in these venues is a joy. And the USA, like me, is discovering what a fabulous guitar player Mike Dawes is, and I look forward to hearing him play every night too.”

Hayward was deeply appreciative of PBS’ support in discussing the network’s carriage of his recording. “It is a privilege and honor that PBS is broadcasting my live show as part of their pledge drives,” he said. He also discussed his own support of and respect for PBS, stating, “PBS has always meant a lot to me – not only for the quality of its programming but for its news, independence, and integrity…a true great comfort to me while I’m on the road.”
