3.0 out of 5 stars A bit too showbiz for my liking..., 30 Dec. 2009
By 
This review is from: The Moody Blues: A Night At Red Rocks With The Colorado... [DVD] [2004] (DVD)
Don't get me wrong folks, this is a very enjoyable concert overall, but I do get a bit tired of John Lodges' smarmy showbiz behaviour and trite 'messages' [eg the spoken intro's to his numbers]. Justin is of course fab [even in his ghastly faux 'classical' shirt] and Rays contribution [whilst minimal as per 80's/90's concerts] do show enthusiasm [shame they didn't include Legend of a Mind on this release however, tho' it is on "Other Side" companion DVD].

Yeah The Moodies have become very 'corporate' in latter years....something of a 'Product' (virtually their own 'Tribute band' !)....nothing 'new' since 1999 - that after an 8 year gap - besides a few Xmas themed songs in 2003

In truth they have been creatively stretching themselves ever more thinly without first Mike Pinder (since 1978) then Ray Thomas (effectively since 1983 with the odd exeption)...

Justin Hayward being very much the king pin opening all albums since 1981, where as once it was a five piece effort with at least four top composers & vocalists.

this is a Lovely set....consisting of Musical nostalga...the Symphony orchestra following Mike Pinder & Peter Knight's arrangements faithfully...

Great concert...but you can't help feel the Moodies could & should have been SO MUCH MORE during the 90's & last decade than just their own Nostalga act (admittedly with a massive audience...but they had that since the later sixties...)

** Tell Amazon that 'Gemini Dream' is 'Hayward-Lodge'...not just John Lodge.

Agree absolutely Joey about they should and could have done so much more with all that talent however even shorn of MP and RT they are and have been a great act. Went and saw them last night in Ipswich and yes it is a bit like being their own tribute band but what a fabulous evening we all had.
