Ian Moss brings his six string to Gladstone

IAN Moss once said "only once in a blue moon would I try doing a solo show" but now he's embarking on an Australian tour armed with just his six string.

The central Queensland leg of the tour will be in late June, with his Gladstone show scheduled for June 22.

Moss will tour the brilliant Six Strings album, which was recorded in 2005.

Recorded at Sydney's Sandringham Hotel with a Maton 808 acoustic guitar, three pick-ups, three microphones, he showcased his amazing musical skill.

Cold Chisel greats, platinum solo singles, new songs and relics from Hendrix and Creedence were rendered with an impossibly warm timbre and bluesy lilt that are instantly recognisable, but with a thrilling sense of immediacy.

Still respected as one of Australia's iconic musicians, 5 times ARIA winner Ian Moss delivers an unforgettable live sound - not only as a telling soloist on guitar but especially with his silken voice, ringing with clarity and resonating with pure soul.

Ian's distinctive vocal is the essential signature of his soulful, bluesy muse - as it has been since his first tentative foray into music during the early 1970s.

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 / Ian Moss classics, performed as only Ian can.

The Six Strings Classic tour is a complete evening with Ian Moss - a special two hour performance that will be the perfect intimate setting for audiences to experience the powerfully resonating classic songs of Cold Chisel and Ian Moss.

"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."
