Gary Moore exhibition for Belfast

More Lizzy memorabilia on display...

While the Philip Lynott: Still In Love With You exhibition enthralls Thin Lizzy fans in the London O2, Belfast’s Oh Yeah Centre is hosting an exhibition of local hero Gary Moore’s personal effects from April 5 to June 30.

Put together at the behest of his family, the items on display include Gary’s ‘quilted’ Gibson Les Paul, the suit he’s pictured wearing here which was commissioned for an Amnesty International event, a series of gold albums, framed magazine covers, signed photos, tour passes, posters and flyers and much more.

One of the country's all-time guitar greats, Moore also served time with the original Skid Row and Colosseum and racked up a couple of collaborative hits with Philo. He passed away peacefully in his sleep last year while on holiday in Spain.
