The Moody Blues and Paid, Inc. to Offer Fans “Story Tellers” VIP Fan Experience Packages, Expanded Fan Community and Web Site

Paid Inc logoBOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The perennially popular British progressive rockers the MOODY BLUES are teaming up with Paid, Inc. (OTCBB:PAYD) to create VIP fan experience packages for future tours that will thrill their fans. Paid’s celebrity services team has taken over management of the Moody Blues web site ( and fan community, with plans to substantially expand both.

The Moody Blues have millions of fans who have followed them over the past three decades. They are very excited to be working with Paid to offer creative VIP fan experiences that deliver a night with the Moody Blues that is second to none.

Most fans can only dream about getting those rare and highly coveted tickets in the first four rows at a concert and hearing firsthand anecdotes of the amusing -- and often unbelievable -- things that happen during the course of a concert tour or recording session. The Moody Blues will be making these dreams come true on future Moody Blues tours with the help of Paid’s celebrity services team which specializes in VIP fan experience management and ticketing. For the first time, the Moody Blues VIP package offering will include the exclusive opportunity to hear the band members share stories from their decades-long careers in a casual concert-hall setting before the concert. VIP packages will feature a variety of options that may also include back stage tours, the opportunity for fans to be photographed on stage before the concert, a premium ticket in the first four rows of the venue, a photo book of their VIP concert experience, an autographed band photo, early access to the merchandise booth and a great bag of swag filled with more exclusive merchandise items to commemorate the night.

To be among the first to be personally notified of giveaways, contests and VIP package availability, sign up for the official Moody Blues fan mailing list free of charge at

Paid will be invigorating the fan club by offering exclusive “fan club member only” content on that may include reports from band members on the tour, behind the scenes photos and video, and contests and special offers. Paid will also expand the official Moody Blues fan community web site to include more interactive content for fans to communicate with one another and post questions for the Moody Blues to answer as well as access news and information, interviews, videos, photos, and more.

For more than 30 years, the Moody Blues have set the standard in classic rock music with chart topping albums such as “Days of Future Passed” (one of the most successful commercial releases of all time), “Seventh Sojourn” and “Long Distance Voyager,” and scores of best selling singles like “Tuesday Afternoon” and “Nights in White Satin,” “Gypsy,” “I’m Just a Singer (in a Rock and Roll Band),” and “I Know You’re Out There Somewhere.” With a sound loved by millions, they have sold more than 55 million albums (including 18 platinum selling records) and have topped the video charts as well with Billboard magazine Video of the Year “Your Wildest Dreams” and a perennial favorite live performance video “A Night at Red Rocks.”

The Moody Blues continue their reign of popularity, playing to sell-out crowds spanning multiple generations. In April 2008, the new Hard Rock Park theme park opened its doors with a ride called “Nights in White Satin – the Trip” incorporating a multi-sensory experience set to a re-orchestrated version of the ride’s namesake song. The band is currently on a North American tour that runs through September.
