Ian Moss has rightfully earned his place as one of the world’s premier guitarists. Noted for his subtlety and nuance of touch, coupled with a voice as smooth as honey and exquisite tenderness, Mossy has been mesmerizing audiences in Australia for well over 40 years as a founding member of one of Australia’s greatest rock bands, Cold Chisel and with a stellar solo career. Put simply, Ian Moss is part of Australian music’s soul.
Now, he brings his electric band show to the UK for the first time in June 2023 playing dates in Birmingham, Nottingham, London, Newcastle, Manchester & Glasgow. Tickets are on sale now https://ianmoss.com.au/tour or from the venues.
“I have toured the UK in the past in solo acoustic mode, and the audiences have always been incredible. We planned on bringing my band in 2020, so I’m excited to finally bring them in June, which will be the first time I have played electric in the UK since doing a handful of shows with my other band, Cold Chisel, in 2012. I can’t wait to come back!”
Moss’s band contains some of the finest musicians in Australia with Clayton Doley – Keys (Joe Bonamassa, Jimmy Barnes), Zoe Hauptmann – Bass (Neil Finn, Paul Kelly, Missy Higgins) and Kerry Jacobson – Drums (Dragon, Mondo Rock)
Moss, who was born and raised in Alice Springs and who was enthralled by the genius of Jeff Beck, was voted as Australia’s best guitarist, ahead of both AC\DC’s Angus and Malcom Young and has released six incredible and dynamic studio albums – The #1 and multi-platinum, Matchbook, Worlds Away, Petrolhead, Let’s all Get Together, Soul on West 53rd and the self-titled Ian Moss and the 2020’s brilliant album Live.
2019 saw the 30th Anniversary of the iconic and landmark album Matchbook. The album was released on August 1, 1989, and peaked at #1 on the ARIA Albums Chart. It remained in the Top 10 for an amazing 14 weeks, shipping more than 200,000 copies in the first 12 months alone. The album went on to win Album of the Year, Best Male Artist and Breakthrough Artist – Album, Breakthrough Artist – Single and Song of the Year (shared with Don Walker) for ‘Tucker’s Daughter’ at the ARIA Music Awards in 1990.
Over the years, Australia has produced some great musical talents that have blown audiences away and without a doubt Ian Moss is one of them.
