Known for building one of country music’s most loyal fanbases in the US, Multi-PLATINUM singer/songwriter Kip Moore looks to have emulated this fervent following in the UK and Ireland in the wake of his headlining stint across the pond this past week. Moore’s return was “eagerly anticipated” (Think Country) with the majority of shows selling out months in advance, prompting the move to bigger venues. Fans and critics agree he “cemented that special bond between crowd and performer…daring to be different, daring to take a risk, he is able to take the crowd further than most artists can by the sheer force of his performance” (2 Country Radio).
Kicking off in Dublin on Friday (4/22), Moore set the pace with a raucous show that led to an impromptu after-show performance at the stage door for fans who weren’t ready to call it a night, followed by a sold-out crowd in Glasgow (4/23) where he again took to the historic streets of the city after his performance to keep the party going. Rowdy shows in England beckoned as Moore played to packed houses in Birmingham (4/25), Manchester (4/26) and he closed out the triumphant run with a sold-out show in London last night (4/27).
Moore will head back out on the road next month for Miranda Lambert’s Keeper Of The Flame Tour, which kicks off in St. Louis, MO on 5/13. His current single, “Running For You,” continues to climb the charts and was taken from the critically acclaimed sophomore album WILD ONES that VICE declares “sprinkles a little late-night Bonnaroo magic…that’s made to be witnessed live.” WILD ONES follows Moore’s debut album UP ALL NIGHT which was recently certified GOLD 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.”
