MONTREAL - It was at the Place des Arts on Tuesday night that the Moody Blues gave a spectacular performance at the Festival International de Jazz de Montréal. This popular group of the 1970s was able to revive a wave of nostalgia in revisiting their great successes.

Straight from the United Kingdom, the trio arrived with the same unique style that recalled their good years. Justin Hayward and John Lodge were installed behind their guitars, while Graeme Edge was hidden behind his drums at backstage. We can say that the two guitarists stole the entire first half of the show. Their dynamic rock songs allowed for guitar solos that energized the crowd.

The two guitarists have lost nothing of their spirit of youth, while the drummer enjoyed throwing drumsticks to the second drummer onstage. The sound of the 70s dominated and the crowd was happy to return to the past. Justin Hayward maintained a strong voice throughout the show.

"It is our pleasure to do a block (of songs?) that recall the heyday of the 60s. During this time, we rubbed elbows with Bob Dylan and Johnny Hallyday," says John Lodge before beginning the song I Know You're Out There Somewhere.

From song to song, the band won several standing ovations. The crowd seemed enthusiastic about each new song and about recalling the memories of the 70s. Moreover, the Moody Blues themselves played on nostalgia throughout the show by showing old pictures of the band, sometimes consisting of former members. To illustrate the past, the group was happy to play the song Your Wildest Dreams with great vigor.

During the songs, the two guitarists enjoy playing together onstage. The group seems to attach much importance to their fans, glancing at some viewers. In addition, during the song I Know You're Out There Somewhere, a projector lit up the crowd and John Lodge was keen to look at every place in the room.

After one hour Graeme Edge came to the forefront, putting aside his drums to sing. "I recently turned 69. So I can say that I lived through the ‘60s twice. The first time we spoke of peace and now we are talking about Viagra. On the other hand, there is always the appeal of sex, drugs and rock 'n’ roll."

The group owes their success to their fans, who wanted them to sing their best known song, Nights in White Satin, which won a standing ovation of several minutes. Moreover, it is with this song the band has become popular in the 60s.
