Eagle Records will release a new Gary Moore live album this autumn, under the title “Live At Bush Hall 2007”. Right before the UK tour the band played a special album launch gig of the Close As You Get record – which was an ‘invited-only’ concert at the Bush Hall in London on the 17th of May in 2007. The concert was broadcasted by the Planet Rock radio, so you might have the recording of it (the radio broadcast was roughly one hour), but it will be great to have an official CD version of this special concert with a pro sound and with a longer tracklist, including two songs what Gary never played again on the tour after this concert. As Eagle Records confirmed, the scheduled release date is 22nd September.

Gary Moore was one of the finest and most respected guitarists of his generation, with a rich musical career both in bands and as a solo artist. He had a vibrant love affair with rock and the blues, which is proudly and loudly heard on “Live At Bush Hall 2007”.

This show, recorded at London’s Bush Hall on May 17, 2007, was originally broadcast by Planet Rock radio. This is the first time the complete show has been made available outside of this original broadcast. The concert features a number of tracks from Gary’s then newly released “Close As You Get” album (Eagle Rock Entertainment), such as “Eyesight To The Blind” and “I Had A Dream”, many of which he rarely played live after this, alongside classics from his extensive back catalogue, such as “Don’t Believe A Word”, “Walking By Myself”, “Still Got The Blues” and many more.

Gary Moore was an unmatched live performer, a virtuoso who also made a visceral connection with any audience, and “Live At Bush Hall 2007” is a perfect representation of his masterwork onstage.

The line-up was:

Gary Moore – guitar, vocals
Pete Rees – bass
Vic Martin – keyboards
Brian Downey – drums
