Hayward previously played at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre with the Moody Blues multiple times. Dawes, who played the Concert Hall in October 2021, will perform an opening set and play guitar for Hayward's band.

At this point, his 2023 tour consists of four stops, all in Florida. Along with Ponte Vedra, he also has stops at the Nancy and David Bilheimer Capitol Theatre in Clearwater on Jan. 22; at the Amaturo Theater at Broward Center for the Performing Arts in Fort Lauderdale on Jan. 26; and at The Plaza Live in Orlando on Feb. 3.

He released a new single “Living for Love” on Aug. 31. His most recent tour ended Sept. 23 at White Rock Theatre Hastings in the United Kingdom.

The Moody Blues have not performed since 2018 when they were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Co-founding drummer Graeme Edge died in November 2021 at age 80.

His bandmate and legendary bassist John Lodge performed earlier this year at the Concert Hall on March 25 when he played classic Moody Blues hits during his solo tour.

Justin Hayward’s musical career is in its fifth decade. He is best known as the voice of The Moody Blues, whose best songs include “Nights in White Satin,” “Tuesday Afternoon,” “Question” and “The Voice.”
