Summer of Rock 2010 - Press release

Click for the larger sizeWith the "blues" line up on summer recess, Gary Moore will be hitting the road this summer, with a whole "new" band line up: Neil Carter returns, after 20 years, to take up his rightful place stage left, behind a battery of technology. He is planning to throw some on stage shapes, as he dusts off his guitars. Jonathan Noyce, (ex-Jethro Tull; sessions) will be holding down the bottom end on bass, again some one who is making a return to the live line up (he was last seen on the Phil Lynott, "One Night in Dublin" tribute DVD in 2005), and providing the percussive edge is a very familiar face, Darrin Mooney (Primal Scream ; sessions) on drums.

New EP & video featuring Gary's guitar playing!

Gypsy And The Wolf is a Brighton-based folk duo, and they have just released their new EP under the title "Perfect Rose".
On the 4th of February Gary joined them in a local pub to play "Crossroad", and around that time they are also recorded a song with Gary, what you can hear now on this EP. "Good Man" is the opening title of this new 6-track EP, which is available on iTunes from today. They are made a great video for the song featuring Gary, what we can watch now on their YouTube page.

Pinkpop Classic 2010

On the 14th of August, Gary will play at the Pinkpop Classic festival in Landgraaf, The Netherlands. Back in his old rock days, they have played already at the Pinkpop festival (23rd of May, 1983), after the release of "Corridors Of Power" album. After 27 years Gary will return to Pinkpop with his new rock project...hopefully with Neil Carter in the band, who also has been at that concert in 1983, just before his joining to Gary's band for the US tour.

Japan tour 2010!

This spring - right after the cherry blossom viewing - there will be some pleasant programs for our dear Japanese friends. Gary will return to Japan after 21 long years, as he played there last time with the "After The War" tour in 1989. The five-dates mini tour including three concerts in Tokyo at different venues, but Gary and his band will find some enthusiastic fans in Osaka and Nagoya, too. The line-up of Gary's band is the same as last year: Pete Rees on bass, Vic Martin on keyboards and Steve Dixon on drums.

40 years on records!

Last week Gary had played one of the last shows of the Bad For You Baby tour in Budapest. On the day before the show he had attended a press conference - right after arriving from Poland. Although the journalists were not in top form with their questions, they did run for autographs at the end just like fans would do. Or they were more like fans than journalists? Anyway, I still had a few seconds to presenting to Gary a thankyou "award" in the name of our fan community. It's 40 years already since the first vinyl record has been released featuring Gary's guitar playing.
