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...
It is happened a couple days ago, when we have received a nice message from Tony Curry of BBC Northern Ireland, who produced the documentary "Gary Moore - Still Got The Blues" last year. They will give us permission for a one-time screening of their nice film at our Memorial Concert in Budapest. It will be a really nice addition to start the evening! Thankyou for this kind gesture! It is great to have one more helping hand!
I wish you all a Merry Christmas, peaceful days with your loved ones! Thankyou for the friendship! Let's keep in touch in the new year! Thankyou for visiting our website!
...and remember to the man, who gave us so many "Christmas presents" on every day of the year, each days of our lives when his timeless songs and inimitable guitar playing filling up our heart with emotions, and brings back all the memories.
This autumn Gary will return to Russia with his new band, but this time they will visit more cities than earlier in April. The tour will follow a similar route as the Trans-Siberian railway, which is the world's longest and the most famous train route that goes through Russia. It crosses the whole continent, starts in Moscow and ending in Vladivostok.
"Famous British guitarist-bluesman Gary Moore will come with a tour not only to Moscow, but to the largest Russian cities for the first time - the tour organizers informed. There will be many rock hits in the musician’s new program. He is to visit eight Russian cities as part of the Russian tour – Kazan, Vladivostok, Khabarovsk, Novosibirsk, Yekaterinburg, Rostov-on-Don. The tour will start on October 17 in Krasnoyrask; the final concert will take place on October 30 in Moscow - Interfax reports."
"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
