Your Wildest Dreams

You didn't need drugs to catch a psychedelic ride in the late '60s. You found a darkened room, friends and a few beanbag chairs, put the needle on "Nights in White Satin" and spent 6-plus minutes between heaven and feeling no pain. 1967 was the year of music evolution from pop singles into concept albums laced with ethereal instrumentation and audio-engineering wizardry; The Moody Blues' Days of Future Passed, the Beatles' Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band and Jimi Hendrix's Are You Experienced? were an escape from the third dimension into a personal creative playground on your turntable. The Blues' six chart-topping albums through 1973 affirmed their legendary status in music. (Try finding a 50-year-old who doesn't own them all.) Live Nation brings The Moody Blues to Bass Performance Hall, Fourth and Calhoun streets in Fort Worth, at 8 p.m. Thursday. Tickets are $55 to $85. Call 817-212-4280 or visit
