MOODY BLUES: Lovely to Sail With You Again
The Moody Blues set sail today (Wednesday) on their second annual cruise. Sailing from Miami, the MSC Divina will make stops at Turks and Caicos, and Nassau in the Bahamas before returning to Miami on Monday.
The theme of this year’s cruise is Return to the Isle of Wight, a celebration of the 1970 Isle of Wight Festival, which the Moodies performed at. Joining them will be Isle of Wight veterans Roger Daltrey, who played there with The Who, and Carl Palmer, who was there with ELP. Also cruising will be The Zombies, Starship, Little River Band and many others.
All the artists will be performing as well as taking part in question-and-answer sessions and meet-and-greets. There will also be screening of Oscar-winning director Murray Lerner’s Message to Love: The Isle of Wight Festival 1970, along with films of the Moody Blues and The Who’s performances there.
