Tibbits to present The Moody Blues Online Tribute Concert

Enjoy the rock and pop music of The Moody Blues at a live-streamed tribute performance concert by GO NOW! to benefit Tibbits Opera House on October 17.

The Moody Blues distinguished themselves through five decades as that shimmering jewel vindicating rock music as a substantial artistic contribution to Western culture.  Since the 60s, as a part of the historic original British invasion of Supergroups, The Moody Blues lit up the hearts and minds of millions of rock fans with inspiring anthems like “Nights in White Satin,” “Tuesday Afternoon” and “I’m Just A Singer (In A Rock and Roll Band),” which express universal themes of love, compassion and peace.  They have sold in excess of 70 million albums worldwide and have been awarded an astonishing 14 platinum and gold discs. In 2018, they were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

Gordon Marshall, drummer with The Moody Blues for over 25 years, knew that there was a hunger in the market for Moody Blues music.  To fill the void once the band stopped touring, he put together a new amazing group of musicians and formed the band GO NOW!, a tribute to the music of The Moody Blues. This never-before-seen live-streaming concert at the Harlequin Theatre in London, marks the first time since early spring that the band will come together to perform. Mick Wilson, the lead singer of GO NOW!, was the lead singer with 10cc for over 20 years.  Gordon and Mick are joined on stage by Patrick Duffin, Ryan Farmery and Nick Kendall, and together recreate the magical music we all know, including all the major hits.  With 25 years experience with The Moody Blues, Gordon has created true-to-the-original arrangements, making every performance truly magical.

In recent years GO NOW! has performed throughout the UK, selling out theatres and making many return appearances.  Their first venture into the U.S. in 2019 resulted in 12 out of 12 sold-out performances at venues in Arizona and resulted in a planned repeat 14-show run in Arizona and California in the spring of 2020.
