The Moody Blues' Justin Hayward has just announced a 19-date East Coast fall run. Hayward will be on the road throughout August taking in stops in the Midwest and West Coast. Hayward's fall leg kicks off on October 6th in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania at Whitaker Center and runs through November 10th at Melbourne, Florida's King Center for the Arts.

Prior to hitting the road for his last string of solo concerts, Justin Hayward told us that he planned to play the show in a far more laid back way than Moodies fans are accustomed to seeing him: "I think one other guitar player, keyboards, maybe some vocals -- that's it. Some stories, as I wrote the songs, I've been doing it the last few days and I've been surprised how well these songs work with my own guitars from home and that's how I'll do it, I think. I found out before, really, once you introduce drums, y'know -- bang, bang, splat, crash -- it's a different. . . it's a different gig."
