Kip Moore Wraps Sold-Out Headlining Stint In The UK!

Kip is continuing to build a fervent following across the pond, returning this past week for a headlining sold-out stint kicking off in Birmingham, UK on 10/2, also stopping in Manchester, UK (10/3), Glasgow, UK (10/4) and London, UK (10/6). Playing to capacity crowds each night, Moore treated audiences to songs from his "strongest, most artistic album” (Forbes), the recently released and critically acclaimed SLOWHEART, as CMT declares “it’s the way he expresses what’s on his mind that draws sold-out audiences around the world.” 

 

The triumphant run culminated in a special show on Friday night (10/6) as part of Country Music Week in London, UK at O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire, with Entertainment Focus noting the “rapturous reception from the audience...Throughout the set Kip mixed in songs from all three of his albums, with highlights including a raucous rendition of 'Beer Money', the high energy of 'The Bull', and the sing-along 'Heart’s Desire' and the rocky 'Bittersweet Company.'” Moore, who first made an impression overseas at Europe’s Country To Country Festival in 2015, will return to the festival in 2018 for the annual festival taking place March 9-11 in London, UK, Glasgow, UK, and Dublin, I.E. 

 

Moore has hit his stride with SLOWHEART, and his current Top 5 single “More Girls Like You,” is the fastest rising single of his career and is receiving praise from critics such as Entertainment Weekly declaring he “has made a name for himself weaving vignettes of Southern, blue-collar life and love into rollicking country anthems.” SLOWHEART follows the acclaim that surrounded his sophomore album WILD ONES heralded as "an impressively singular release from Music Row" by The Guardian. Moore first turned heads with his debut album UP ALL NIGHT which was recently certified Double-PLATINUM by the RIAA and spawned three No. One hit singles including GOLD certified "Beer Money," PLATINUM certified "Hey Pretty Girl," and the DOUBLE PLATINUM breakout hit "Somethin' 'Bout A Truck. Moore, who has trail-blazed his own path with his reputation-making live show recently announced his headlining PLEAD THE FIFTH TOUR kicking off on 10/19.

Please do not take this comment as an insult but I find your new guitarist just a wee bit overpowering. Yes he can play guitar but we came to see you as the main man but you almost got pushed into the back ground at one point. 3rd time we saw you, Birmingham x 2 and Ireland this summer. Looking forward to seeing you next year and I will take the time to come and shake hands . Thanx for the music.

Big Gordon, biker, Scotsman and fan.

I have to agree with Big Gordon.  The new guy has talent, for sure, but I don't think it's the right energy for the long haul, Kip. Not as melodic as  Dave Lapsley.  I certainly don't mean to denigrate the new guitarist in any way.  Having played, myself,  I feel I have a good ear for the necessary chemistry.  In any event, next time you are performing in central Florida I'll be there.  You are the real deal.
