Gary Moore

Story by Jack Foley

GARY Moore has announced a 10-date UK Tour in October and November 2009, culminating with a night at London’s O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire.

Moore is acknowledged as one of the finest guitarists that the British Isles has ever produced. In a career that dates back to the ’60s Moore has graced the line-ups of several notable rock bands including Thin Lizzy, Collosseum II and Skid Row, to name but three, and to this day maintains a highly successful solo career.

Bad For You Baby is Moore’s latest studio album, and he continues with the sequence of blues rock albums that he began on Eagle Records with Old, New, Ballads, Blues and continued on Close As You Get.

Mixing predominantly original tunes with a few Blues classics that he has rediscovered, Bad For You Baby reaffirms Moore’s exceptional talent as a guitarist and his deep insight into and feel for the Blues as a living musical form.

Moore will be playing the following venues in October and November 2009:

18 – Lincoln Engine Shed
