Has anyone ever gone to a Moody Blues outdoor concert? Where you can lay out on the grass, up on a hill, and look down at the stage where they are, and either use your binoculars, or just lie back and close your eyes, and listen to their music, and your in heaven for a brief couple of hours. Especially when Ray Thomas played his flute solo in that song about Timothy Leary. I would so much enjoy the company also, all the folks around me, loving the Moodies like I did, and their music was so uplifting, and spiritual, and could life everyone there to a higher plane of love and just plain feeling really good.

In the mid-90s they played at Sea World in San Antonio. My family got there early in the morning and got in line because there was no reserved seating. We would take turns holding the place in line and going to some of the Sea World shows. When they finally opened the gate that evening, we grabbed a spot in the "front row" (there were no chairs, we spread out blankets on the grass) directly in front of John Lodge. I've been to lots of MB shows, but this one was my favorite. At the time, they were doing the orchestra shows and while I liked those fine, it was nice to just see the Moody Blues by themselves. Yes, Legend of a Mind was definitely a highlight! It was a beautiful night with a full moon and it's a great memory.

I did. It was about 18 years ago in Virginia, just outside of Richmond, at a theme park (I think it is now a Six Flags). The concert was invigorating. They played all the oldies. I had never been to an outdoor concert before. The combination of music, the stars, and the overall atmosphere, just brought the music to life. It was by far the best concert I have ever been too.
