British rock band The Moody Blues splashed onto the 1960s music scene with innovative works such as its sophomore studio album, Days of Future Passed, which featured a fusion of rock and classical music. It also played a significant role in the British-led progressive rock movement. After a brief breakup, a lot of roster changes and 15 more studio albums, the "Moodies" are still going strong. They head to the Lyric Opera House, 140 W. Mount Royal Ave., 8 p.m. Monday for a performance. Tickets $38-$68.

Justin Hayward, lead singer and guitarist for the Moody Blues, was in the recording studio in Los Angeles when we spoke recently, but he was getting ready "to meet a man about a movie."Would he be acting in the film or doing a soundtrack? "A soundtrack," he explained. "It's not something that's new to me."Projects like this haven't kept Mr. Hayward from continuing to work with the Moody Blues, who kicked off their new tour May 22 in Charlotte, N.C. and will appear tonight at Merriweather Post Pavilion.

Like the warm weather itself, the summer concert season seems to be arriving in fits and starts. This Sunday, more subscription series will go on sale at the Merriweather Post Pavilion, adding four new lineups to the two announced three weeks ago.As usual, each series is grouped around an assumed area of interest, so Barry Manilow fans won't be forced to see the H.O.R.D.E. tour (and vice versa). And as seems to be the case most summers, these initial offerings tend toward the tried and true -- not to mention the old.Series C, for instance, could be considered the "classic rock" offering.

Somewhere, I have black and white snapshots of a Herman's Hermits concert I attended on the Steel Pier in Atlantic City, N.J., more than 40 years ago. The photos are blurry, but you can spot Peter Noone's head bobbing above a sea of transfixed teenage girls. I remember elbowing my way to the front to hand him a teddy bear on behalf of another girl. If you go The British Invasion Concert, sponsored by MPT, takes place at 8 p.m. tomorrow at the Lyric Opera House, 140 W. Mount Royal Ave. The show features Herman's Hermits starring Peter Noone; Badfinger star Joey Molland; Denny Laine, former singer with Moody Blues and Wings; and Billy J. Kramer and the Dakotas.

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. / / Little is permanent here, but much is reused. That point will be made -- with a loud ka-raaaang -- this month with the launching of Hard Rock Park. The Southeast's first new amusement park in nine years opened Tuesday on the long-dormant Fantasy Harbor entertainment complex and partly on the rubble of the failed Waccamaw Factory Shoppes. Hard Rock Park opened with 55 acres of rides, eateries and shops on a 140-acre site about half the size of Carowinds in North Carolina or Tennessee's Dollywood.

They said rock and roll would never die, but who ever imagined it would lead to the Summer of the Living Dead?Look through the listings for the local amphitheaters, and you'll find plenty of the year's hottest acts -- assuming the year in question is 1978. And while that may be good news for classic rock aficionados, there haven't been this many dinosaurs walking the earth since the Jurassic Period.How bad is it?At the Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, the summer got under way Sunday with a double bill of Styx and Kansas, while upcoming shows include such cutting-edge acts as the Moody Blues(tomorrow)

It may say "Summer, 1992" at the top, but looking at the artists included in the subscription line-up announced by the Merriweather Post Pavilion yesterday, it's hard not to wonder if they really meant "Summer, 1972."Starting with a season-opening show by Lynyrd Skynyrd on May 21, the Pavilion will feature performances by such '70s superstars as Jimmy Buffett (May 22-23), Ringo Starr (June 17), Chicago & the Moody Blues (sharing a bill June 19-20), James Taylor (Aug. 15), John Denver (Aug.
