Justin Hayward, the legendary lead singer, guitarist and songwriter for The Moody Blues, recently embarked on a series of solo concerts across the United States. His rich vocals and incredible guitar playing served to highlight classic Moody Blues tunes plus songs from his latest solo album "Spirits of the Western Sky." Justin’s PBS show was recorded live at the Buckhead Theatre, Atlanta’s premier intimate theatrical venue. This new concert special showcases a powerful performance from an artist who has played a significant role in the history of rock. "Justin Hayward: Spirits...Live" is part of special programming premiering on PBS stations.

For almost fifty years, Hayward and The Moody Blues have been musical mainstays on concert stages, recordings and the airwaves. The band has sold more than 70 million albums worldwide and has been awarded 18 Platinum and Gold Discs. And just recently, The Moody Blues were inducted into the Ultimate Classic Rock Hall of Fame.

"Justin Hayward: Spirits...Live" features Moody Blues classics including “Tuesday Afternoon” and “Nights in White Satin,” (one of the biggest-selling singles of all time) plus other gems from the band’s catalog, along with Hayward’s newest songs from his solo career. The program also features two keyboardists currently touring with the Moody Blues, plus a virtuoso performance by extraordinary guitarist Mike Dawes.

Usually, Hayward plays to huge halls or arenas with a much larger band. But the Buckhead Theatre is a smaller venue that enabled the four performers to play with an intimacy rarely experienced before. As a result, viewers are treated to a performance that has both excitement and a rich sense of connection to the legendary performer.

"Justin Hayward: Spirits...Live" has been produced, directed and edited by David Minasian. Executive producers are Justin Hayward, Robert Norman and Michael Pinkus. The program is an Eagle Rock Entertainment production and is being presented on PBS by TPT /Twin Cities Public Television.
