The Moody Blues are the first superstar rock band to confirm a 2018 date at the new Toyota Music Factory.  Their historic "Days Of Future Passed- 50th Anniversary Tour" will take over the Pavilion's Indoor Theater stage on January 22nd.  For long-time Moody Blues fans, this show will be extra special.  Justin Hayward, John Lodge, & Graeme Edge will perform the group's most popular tracks during the 1st half of the concert, then dedicate the 2nd portion to playing the entire iconic "Days" album.

A fundraising event for Houston-area victims of the recent massive storm has also just been locked in for November 28th.  Don Henley will headline a show also featuring Clint Black & Lyle Lovett.  "Helping Texans:  A Hurricane Harvey Benefit Concert" will happen at Bass Hall in Fort Worth.  Texas businessman Ed Bass is donating the venue & covering production expenses so all the money from ticket sales can be distributed to relief groups working on the recovery efforts in Southeast Texas.
