Gary Moore: Jimi Hendrix tribute package due this fall

A new live package featuring Gary Moore performing Jimi Hendrix material is on the way.

Filmed at the London Hippodrome on October 25, 2007, “Blues For Jimi” captures a unique concert featuring Moore playing classic Hendrix tracks, including “Purple Haze,” “Foxy Lady,” “The Wind Cries Mary,” “Hey Joe,” “Voodoo Child (Slight Return)” and many more.

The concert was part of the launch for the Jimi Hendrix “Live At Monterey” program.

At the end of the night, Gary was joined by Mitch Mitchell and Billy Cox of the Jimi Hendrix Experience for three tracks.

The full line-up for this show was Gary Moore (guitar, vocals); Dave Bronze (bass); Darrin Mooney (drums) with Billy Cox (bass on tracks 9-11, and also vocals on the first two of those) and Mitch Mitchell (drums on tracks 9-11).

Both Moore and Mitchell have passed since this concert took place, which makes the recording of this incredible night so special.

Gary Moore was one of the finest guitarists of all time and is one of the few players who could pay homage to Jimi Hendrix’s groundbreaking and truly distinctive guitar style. This is a stunning tribute from one master guitarist to another.

“Blues For Jimi” will be available on CD, DVD and Blu-ray on September 25.
