GARY MOORE: Summer Shows Cancelled

Legendary guitarist Gary Moore has cancelled his remaining summer show of 2004, Blue Balls Music in Luzern on July 26.

"Gary is currently in hospital, receiving treatment for an infection to his left hand, which has led to the cancellation of the remaining summer shows, on the 'Power of the Blues' tour," according to a posting on his web site.

"His condition is improving, following a course of intravenous antibiotics, but it will be a few weeks before he can get back to playing and is annoyed that this has cut the summer short, especially after the new songs and lineup, were going down so well.

"Gary would like to pass on his thanks to everyone for the get well messages, which he has been able to read while in the hospital.

"He is due for release from hospital, over the next day or two and will be resting and generally taking it easy, for the next few weeks."

Moore's latest studio album, "Power of the Blues", was released last month through Sanctuary Records. Described as a continuation of the rock/blues tradition that Moore started on in the early 1990s, "Power of the Blues" features Gary on vocals and guitar, Daisley on bass, and Darrin Mooney on drums. Daisley last played with Gary on the "Still Got the Blues" album in 1990 after being a regular band member live and on record throughout the 1980s. Mooney joined Gary for the "A Different Beat" tour in 1999, and has been the regular drummer on the past three albums. "Power of the Blues" is produced by Gary Moore and Chris Tsangarides (credits include THIN LIZZY and JUDAS PRIEST).
