After discovering that they are to be inducted into the 2018 Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame, The Moody Blues kick the New Year off in exciting fashion, by embarking on the latest instalment of their fan cruise. The fourth Moody Blues Cruise sets sail today, 2 January, from Miami and will stop at Grand Cayman Island and Cozumel, Mexico, before returning to port on Sunday, 7 January.
Among the artists joining The Moody Blues on the seafaring festival are The Zombies, who also were nominated for Rock Hall induction this year, but weren’t chosen. Other acts performing on the cruise include Dave Mason, Jefferson Starship, Richie Furay, Al Stewart, the Alan Parsons Live Project, Little River Band, Ambrosia and The Ides of March.
