LONDON BASED SINGER/SONGWRITER AND PERFORMER TONY MOORE TO JOIN BRITISH LION AS SPECIAL GUEST FOR THEIR EXTENSIVE UK TOUR IN JAN 2024
Tony Moore, Who Was A Former Member Of Iron Maiden In The 70’s, Will Be Special Guest On The British Lion Tour. The Band, That Also Features Iron Maiden’s Steve Harris On Bass, are returning to the UK to play 16 dates throughout January 2024.
SEPTEMBER 15th, 2023 – (London, UK). On January 4th 2024 London based Musical Artist Tony Moore will begin a 16 date tour opening for the band British Lion as they play shows together right across the UK from Aberdeen to The Isle Of Wight.
This tour will have an extra special element to it as Steve Harris, who plays bass guitar in British Lion is also bass player for Iron Maiden and in 1977 he and Tony first met when Tony was invited to become keyboard player for the band. This tour will mark the first time that both Tony and Steve have performed on the same stage for over 45 years and fittingly the opening date of the tour will be at The Cart And Horses in Stratford, East London, the venue where Iron Maiden played many of their very first shows.
Tony will be opening the tour each night presenting highlights from his acclaimed one man show, titled AWAKE, which he has been performing in London to packed houses over the last two years.
AWAKE is a multimedia, immersive experience that was written and recorded by Tony in 2021 and draws inspiration from many of the influential musicians and bands of the 70’s but with Tony’s own, highly original take on things.
Although they lost touch for a long time, Steve and Tony re-connected a few years ago and through the lockdown, had countless long distance conversations about music, much of which was about the songs and production Tony was writing and creating for the AWAKE album.
Tony says “I was sharing songs with Steve as I wrote and recorded them and when the Album was complete, his support and enthusiasm for the project made an incredible difference to me. I am thrilled to able to take these songs out on the road with Steve and the guys in British Lion and I am very blessed that they invited me to be a part of their show”
Full tour dates and ticket links can be found on The British Lion website https://britishlionuk.com/
AWAKE is a concept album and show that features film and video footage specially created by Tony which supports and underwrites the music he is presenting. It’s a truly one man show where, throughout the performance, Tony alternates between Lead Guitar, Piano, Acoustic Guitar and Vocals whilst employing the latest technology to create an immersive experience for audiences.
Tony Moore is a multi instrumentalist, singer/songwriter and highly experienced performer whose eclectic career in the entertainment business tells a unique story.
