On 5/6/03 Evolver Entertainment released “Amsterdam”, Luka Bloom’s first-ever live album. Recorded in concert at the Carre Theater, Amsterdam on the 11th of February, 2002 the album captures Luka unaccompanied, and at his best; one show, one man, one outstanding night and an album of sheer brilliance.

Barry Moore decided to relocate to the United States from Ireland in 1987.

Re-christening himself Luka Bloom during the long airplane ride, would make New York his home. After signing to the Resprise label he would record three memorable albums; RIVERSIDE in 1990, ACOUSTIC MOTORBIKE in 1992, and TURF in 1994.

By 1995, he had parted ways with the label and returned to his homeland, settling in Dublin. After releasing his latest studio album BETWEEN THE MOUNTAIN AND THE MOON, Luka hit the road to support the album, along the way hitting the beautiful Carre Theatre in Amsterdam in February 2002. Luka played to a large audience of devoted fans, who had traveled from as far away as Ireland, Colorado and Germany to be with the MAN for this concert. The power, energy, atmosphere, and downright magic of his performance can only be described by the man himself:

“For 10 years people have been asking me in the US, Europe and Australia to release a live album. Though I’ve recorded many shows, I’ve been slow to come round to this idea, partly because I’m not generally a fan of live albums. All the clapping, whistling etc. can seem intrusive to the music, and lets face it, you’re not there!

“However, last February 11th in Amsterdam, I sang in the delicious Carre Theatre. A Monday night, frosty outside. 1500 souls braved the cold, to come to Carre, and share the songs with me.

“The result is this, AMSTERDAM, a recorded photo of one night of songs in my favourite European city.”
