Ian Moss visits Gladstone in national solo tour
IAN Moss never could imagine doing a solo show - but now he will travel the country on a 10 year anniversary tour celebrating his original Six String Tour.
While promoting his 2005 circa preparing himself to record and tour his Six Strings album, Moss said he thought a solo tour would be easy.
"Only once in a blue moon would I try doing a solo show in the old days, and that was with an electric guitar. I thought it would be easy but it wasn't. You have to reappraise the whole thing, play differently, change your solo style. You have to go back to the song, look at what the lyrics are about, find a new way to express them. It's a real challenge, but a rewarding one."
After a sensational sell out tour in 2015, and to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of Six Strings Ian Moss is touring the nation to capital and regional cities, including Gladstone. Moss will perform in Gladstone at the Gladstone Entertainment Convention Centre in June.
His last Gladstone show was in October 2014 at the Harvey Road Tavern.
"Doing these shows remind me time and time again that it's all about how you play.
"I'm amazed at how much colour and variation and emotion I've been able to get with just voice, guitar and a foot tapping on the floor. Less is more."
Ian will be performing all of the classic hits from that renowned 'Six Strings' album as well as the big hitters form his 'Let's All Get Together' and 'Soul on West 53rd' albums.
The show will include all the Cold Chisel and Ian Moss classics.
The Six Strings Classic tour is a complete evening with Ian Moss - a special two hour, intimate performance.
He will perform in Gladstone at the Gladstone Entertainment Convention Centre on June 22.
