TONY MOORE


Tony Moore’s career in music began when he left his hometown of Bristol to join the then-unknown Iron Maiden as a keyboard/synth player. He rehearsed and worked with them for around 6 months but after only one gig with the band, Tony departed to form the group Tanz Der Youth with Brian James formerly The Damned.

This band gained traction quickly, touring and opening for The Stranglers and Black Sabbath, recording a critically acclaimed single on RADAR records as well as being championed by legendary radio DJ John Peel until they split up after about a year together.

In the early 80’s Tony started Radio Java, signing to Carrere Records and recording an album of his songs at Abbey Road. His single FOOL became a number 1 hit in Holland at Xmas 1983.

In the mid 80’s Tony was asked to join Cutting Crew as keyboard player, going on to tour the world and opening for acts like Huey Lewis, Starship and The Bangles in the wake of the global success of their hit single “(I JUST) DIED IN YOUR ARMS TONIGHT. They were also the first Western band to play a live show in Taiwan that allowed dancing and audiences to stand up – something that almost caused a riot in Taipei !

At the end 2004 Tony Moore was made the sole Inductee into the MMF (Music Managers Forum) Roll Of Honour for outstanding contribution to the British Music Industry.

In October of 2010 Tony was awarded a “GOLD BADGE” by the British Academy of Songwriters, Composers and Authors for his services to songwriters and his major contribution to the creative industry.

As a writer, singer and performer he has never stopped and on June 30th 2019, Tony captivated a sold out stadium audience with his own composition “We Are The Light ” at the closing ceremony of the European Games 2019 in Minsk, Belarus. This momentous show was also broadcast live to 117 countries across the Earth, reaching an estimated 500 million viewers making it the biggest gig of his life so far.

During lockdown, Tony took his live performances digitally and from March 24th 2020 onwards he played more than 110 consecutive two-hour long online shows before taking a break in July of that year. His streamed shows titled “Right Here With Tony Moore” have been viewed by countless thousands of people from all corners of the planet and have resulted in him building a massive community of supporters.

In 2022 Julian Lennon recorded and released his latest album “JUDE” that included a song he co-wrote with Tony called “LOVE NEVER DIES” which also features Tony playing the haunting piano part that underpins the song

Tony is currently performing AWAKE, his highly acclaimed live one man show, based on music he wrote, recorded and produced through the lockdown, to full houses all around the UK and in Jan 2024 he will open for Steve Harris and his band British Lion on their British Tour followed by his own headline tour of the show in venues right across the country.

Later in 2024 there are already tentative plans to take AWAKE further afield including the USA and Canada
