JOHN LODGE: LIVE FROM BIRMINGHAM – THE 10,000 LIGHT YEARS TOUR features Lodge’s performance in his hometown of Birmingham on his first-ever solo tour. The boxset will contain a CD and DVD of the full concert, in addition to a special “behind the scenes” bonus DVD covering his journey from his New York City release party, through to the final concert in Birmingham. Roger Dean created the artwork for this special project, some 40 years after he first created the artwork for John’s first solo album, NATURAL AVENUE.
Lodge was joined on stage by longtime collaborators Alan Hewitt (keyboards/music director) and Norda Mullen (flute) from The Moody Blues; Gordon Marshall (drums, formerly of The Moody Blues); Tim Maple (guitar) and Gemma Johnson (cello). The band was specially put together for the UK dates, creating a unique sound, and bringing 10,000 LIGHT YEARS AGO, and Lodge’s songs from The Moody Blues, to audiences never before heard in a solo arena such as “I’m Just a Singer (in a Rock and Roll Band),” “Gemini Dream,” “Ride My Seesaw,” “Isn’t Life Strange,” “Candle of Life,” and more. He also performed the Lodge/Hayward BLUE JAYS song, “Saved By The Music.”
