Exhibition Celebrating Life And Work Of GARY MOORE Launched In Belfast

An exhibition celebrating the life and work of legendary guitarist Gary Moore has been launched at the Oh Yeah Music Centre in Belfast, United Kingdom.

Gary Moore was an exceptional guitarist, songwriter and performer. His solo records are internationally admired, likewise his work with the likes of THIN LIZZY, SKID ROW, THE TRAVELLING WILBURYS, BB King and George Harrison.

Gary was born in Belfast on April 4, 1952. Sadly, he passed away on February 6, 2011. To mark what would have been his 60th birthday, the family of Gary Moore is helping with a unique exhibition of his personal effects.

The exhibition includes:

* Gary's Black "quilted" Gibson Les Paul guitar
* A suit, shirt and shoes, specially commissioned by the tailor Gresham Blake for an Amnesty International event.
* A series of gold albums, framed magazine covers, signed photos, tour passes, posters and flyers.
* A brass plaque to mark a sold out Hammersmith Odeon show in 2001
* A mounted brick from the Martime Hotel, Belfast, presented by the Belfast Blues Society to Gary.
* Plus many more effects.

This is the first of a series of events that will mark the legendary achievements of Gary Moore.

Exhibition dates: April 5 to June 30, 2012
