Justin Hayward's already warming to Miami
Justin Hayward can't wait to hit the beach.

The guitarist/vocalist from rock band Moody Blues says he's tired of winter already.

``It's freezing here in England right now so I can't wait to get to Miami.'

On Friday, Hayward and his bandmates are performing at Bayfront Park Amphitheatre as part of the band's U.S. tour.

The 63-year-old singer said he's looking forward to performing in the States.

``The American audience is lot more demonstrative, and they express themselves better,' Hayward says. ``In the UK the fans are a bit quieter. They love the music just the same, but Americans know how to go to a concert.'

Even though the band has been rocking out since the '60s, Hayward says most people remember it for the '80s hits Wildest Dreams and I Know You're Out There.

And if you go to the show, you'll most likely hear them. Hayward doesn't mind playing the hits over and over.

``It's a wonderful thing to share and to know that these songs mean something to people,' he says. ``I just think certain songs work onstage whether you like it or not, and it's rewarding each time.'

Hayward said the band plans to treat fans to some new stuff, too. ``That's the fun part for me.'


Moody Blues, 8 p.m. Friday, Bayfront Park Amphitheater, 301 N. Biscayne Blvd., Miami. $31.50-71.50,
