Kip Moore Wowed by UK Reception

By Annie Reuter

Kip Moore recently wrapped several dates overseas and was pleased to find that crowds in the UK crowds are just as avid as his U.S. fans.

“It’s been an unreal experience,” Moore said. “There’s something so special about writing all of your own music, writing these songs and you come all the way to Europe. To see people singing these songs, it’s the most gratifying thing as a songwriter, as an artist, to see people appreciate your work and tell you that to your face. That’s the reason we came, because we felt the demand to come and we felt that they wanted us here. So, we packed up and left.”

During Moore’s dates in the UK he set aside some time to play intimate acoustic sets for fans outside of the venue each night, and said the experience was “pretty amazing.”

He adds that learning directly from the fans how much his music moves them is something he cherishes to hear.

As excited as he was to play shows across the UK, one London venue remains on his wish list.

“My bucket list for International play is Royal Albert Hall,” he said. “I truly hope to headline a show there one day. I hope that we build an audience big enough to where we can go in there and pack that place out.”
