This marks Lodge's first-ever American solo tour, and it will take place from October 26 in Vienna to November 8 at City Winery in New York City. This will be in support of his critically acclaimed solo album, 10,000 Light Years Ago.
These shows will include material from his latest solo album, and he will cover several of The Moody Blues classic rock songs, such as "I'm Just a Singer (In a Rock and Roll Band)," "Gemini Dream" and "Ride My Seesaw," among others. He is also expected to sing "Candle of Life," which has never been played before live.
On this tour, Lodge will be joined by such musicians as longtime collaborators Alan Hewitt on keyboards, who also serves as his musical director, and Norda Mullen on flute from The Moody Blues, drummer Gordon Marshall (formerly of The Moody Blues), and guitarist Duffy King.
Aside from being a bass player, Lodge is also a singer, songwriter and record producer.
