Breaking news! We're proud to announce that a dazzling collection of over 20 of the iconic guitars used by the late, great Irish bluesman Rory Gallagher will be exhibited in the Vintage Zone of the UK Guitar Show, on 29-30 September in London, including his famous '61 Fender Stratocaster, 1959 Fender Esquire, 1933 National Triolian Resonator and many more gems in a selection hand-picked by Rory's family. It's a very special tribute to Rory's musical legacy that no fan of his playing should miss.

We are also excited to welcome the guys from Seven Decades, who will be bringing their incredible collection of vintage guitars to the show. Alongside a brand new exhibition of their guitars and some amazing guitar memorabilia, the Seven Decades band will be performing Telecaster, Les Paul, and Stratocaster focused sessions throughout the day, all performed on some of the world’s rarest vintage guitars. Each day, the evening show will bring the curtain down on the Vintage Zone as they play music from their hit show and celebrate the virtuosity of players including Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Albert Collins, Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton and many more.

The Vintage Zone at the UK Guitar Show is across the road from the main Olympia building (next to Pizza Express) - keep an eye out for signage! Buy advance tickets to the show now from the UK Guitar Show website.

Its my parents 46th Wedding Anniversary today and we are celebrating that and then I get this news. I am just so excited, over the moon and swinging from a chandelier. Rory's guitar will exhibited in London and the "love of his life", his beloved 1961 Strat will be on display and finally in 8 years I hope to get to meet her. I told our Rory Family of fans, friends and musicians in Cork at the South Douglas Bar in June 2018, how much I wanted to meet her! This is a dream come true for me as a Rory fan and for other fans as well. I am just so, so excited!! Yipee!!!! :mrgreen: :mrgreen: I also met Norman Damery of Taste Mark 1 this year too. :0)
I am guitarist too, so there will be other guitars and shows. I will learn a lot. I hope to compose music with my brother in a year or too. This will help.
I have ordered my tickets . I was disappointed I could not see Rory's guitars or books at Cork Library and it was after the Cork Rocks For Rory and Ger 2018 festival. But hey they are all coming to "My Hometown" of London. OMG!!! London was also Rory's second home too. So, so happy!!! Yipee!!! Will let Susie know in a moment via Whatsapp.
I also have the biography book to look forward and Rory's commerative coin. Fantastic!!!
Rock On For Rory. We love you Rory. Susie and I love you. I love you. Subrata.xxxx
Massive thankyou to Donal, Daniel and the Gallagher family for allowing this exhibition. And thankyou Rory! :0)

Thanks for the heads up with this Suby :)
Yes my memory is coming back to me now from last weeks Rory Gallagher Nantwich Festival. Where Eoin Gallagher did tell me about this exhibition among other exciting Rory related upcoming things, including a new RG album. Of which I did ask him not to give me the details, not to spoil the surprise of the content you see for when it will be released.

I hope this guitar exhibition is as successful as the last one in London which was at the Harrods store 2007 ... Hg5k4h9NeM:

I'm sure Suby you will have a great day out there at this exhibition. Besides meeting the love of Rory's life his '61 Strat. I hope you get to meet members of the Gallagher family too.
Yes and thanks a million to Donal, Daniel, Eoin and all the Rory Family for keeping the flag flying for Rory's great legacy :)

Rock On for Rory
