Posted: 3rd July 2009

Gary Moore has this week announced a ten date UK tour for October/ November.

The hard-working, genre-busting guitar legend recently finished touring with Texan blues guitarist Buddy Whittington, which finished on 2nd May at the Hammersmith Apollo in London and included a date at Glasgow's Americana festival 'No Mean City' at the Academy.

As well as carving-out a successful solo career from the 80s onwards, Gary Moore has been an integral part of Skid Row (1967 - 1972), Thin Lizzy (1974 - 1983) and Colosseum II (1975-onwards), as well as collaborations with artists as diverse as BB King, Greg Lake, The Traveling Wilburys, George Harrison, Trilok Gurtu, Albert Collins, Cozy Powell, The Beach Boys, Gary Husband, Ozzy Osbourne and Andrew Lloyd Webber.

He will kick-off the autumn tour in Oxford at the New Theatre on 17th October, with dates in Lincoln, Ipswich, Birmingham, Liverpool, Bournemouth, Cardiff, Edinburgh and Aberdeen, with the tour ending in London at the Shepherds Bush Empire on 1st November.

Tickets, priced at £26.50 for all dates except London (£28.50 - £35) go on sale this morning at 10AM.
