I've received great news from the local distributor of Eagle Records and Eagle Vision products. Now it is confirmed that the long-awaited Jimi Hendrix tribute gig will be released on CD, DVD and Blu-Ray in September (more details soon!). It was recorded at Hippodrome in London on 25th October 2007. Gary Moore, Darrin Mooney and Dave Bronze have played a great set of Jimi Hendirx classics, and in the finale Billy Cox and Mitch Mitchell also joined Gary to play three of the biggest Jimi Hendrix songs. No need to mention how serious was Gary about this event. He was in fire and played the Hendrix tunes as only a few guitarists able to do. But we all know that Gary was able to play easily any of his heroes' style, doesn't matter it is Peter Green, Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton or Jimi Hendrix. What a great concert it was. This material is really something that worth waiting for some more months. They have played the following set of songs...
"You can read" an exclusive interview in the May 2010 issue of the Japanese Burrn! magazine, where Gary is sharing his future plans with the readers. The new Gary Moore record is planned to release this summer, and will not contain any cover songs this time, only own compostions. After this blues album Gary will start to recording the previously mentioned celtic-rock album, probably with Neil Carter, Jonathan Noyce and Darrin Mooney (as he mentioned previously, there will be other guests, too). The release of this album is planned for January 2011 under another record company's logo.
Gary also mentioned that they are planning to play classic rock songs on the concerts like Over The Hills And Far Away, Out In The Fields, Thunder Rising, Blood Of Emeralds, Military Man, Empty Rooms, Johnny Boy, Parisienne Walkways and maybe Emerald, The Loner, End Of The World and Victims Of The Future as well. The setlist also will include two blues songs like Walking By Myself and Still Got The Blues, but of course they will playing some of the new tunes, too. Gary has mentioned three titles from the celtic-rock album: Where Are You Now, Oh Wild One, Days Of Heroes
If you've bought the nice digipak version of "34 Hours" which was released in 2001, you will like this new CD as well. Repertoire Records finally released the first Skid Row album in the same digipak format with a nice booklet - although without any bonus tracks this time. This remastered version of the first (but not the originally recorded!) Skid Row album is released on 12th of February.

Gary and his band will start the touring in March with some dates in Denmark, but during the spring and the summer they will play some more dates in the UK and Ireland as well. The line-up is not known yet, but it seems Gary has kept together the band since the last summer gigs (Brian Downey - drums, Vic Martin - keyboards, Pete Rees - bass). Otis Taylor will be the support act on the UK dates! Maybe some more European dates will be announced soon.
