Gary Moore

Story by Jack Foley

GARY Moore has announced a 12-date UK Tour in April and May 2009 starting at Folkestone Leas Cliff Hall on Thursday, April 16 and ending at London’s Hammersmith Apollo on Saturday, May 2.

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, Colosseum II and Skid Row, and to this day maintains a highly successful solo career.

Bad For You Baby is his latest studio album, on which Moore 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.

The album mixes predominantly original tunes with a few Blues classics that Gary has rediscovered.
