TOUR DATES FOR 1964
MAY 1964
2Birmingham, UKThe Carlton BallroomFirst Gig for the Moody Blues

The group name started as "The M & B 5"

THIS POSTER IS A FAKE

A poster exists for May 15, 1964 showing the Moody Blues playing with The Kinks at Wembley Stadium. However, in May, 1964, the group was the "M & B 5", not "Moody Blues". Also, on May 15, 1964, The Kinks were playing at the "Shepherd's Club" in West London. (Doug Hinman, "The Kinks: All Day and All of the Night", p. 57)
