The Moody Blues’ John Lodge postpones Patchogue show due to illness


There’ll be no “Nights in White Satin” any time soon in Patchogue.

A March 5 show featuring Moody Blues’ singer, bass guitarist and songwriter John Lodge at the Patchogue Theatre for the Performing Arts has been postponed due to a serious medical issue the artist experienced over the holidays.

As Lodge recuperates, he said, he won’t be able to travel for “the next couple of months,” forcing the delay of his “Days of Future Passed – My Sojourn” tour, which was scheduled to kick off Feb. 24 in Florida. Lodge had scheduled 16 show during February and March.

“I’m so sorry that my Christmas present this year was not a good one, so unfortunately I am going to have to postpone my tour in February/March,” Lodge posted on Facebook. “I hate to disappoint everyone, but whilst I can’t wait to get back on the road with my new show, I won’t be able to travel for the next couple of months.”

Lodge added that he was doing well and passing some of the time by writing music.

Lodge’s new album by the same title as his tour is scheduled to be released in the United States in March. Additionally, he is working on a new album due for release later this year, he said.

It is uncertain when new tour dates will be announced, though a post on John Lodge’s Facebook page noted that the rescheduled dates “will be confirmed shortly.”

Patchogue Theatre asked ticket holders to “Please hang onto your tickets and we will announce the new dates as soon as we can where your tickets will be honored or refunds will be made vailable.”

In spite of the postponement of Lodge’s show in March, the the theater has a full slate of shows scheduled ove rthe next couple of months.
