Watch Gary Moore and B.B. King Play “The Thrill Is Gone” in 1992

In 1992, while touring in support of his most recent release, After Hours, Gary Moore was joined onstage by blues legend B.B. King. 

Together, they played “The Thrill Is Gone,” jamming out an extended 10-minute version of the Rick Darnell/Roy Hawkins–penned song that had been a hit for King in 1969.

The performance, shown above, took place at the Town and Country Club in London. King’s appearance was due in no small part to his appearance on After Hours, where he performed on the track “Since I Met You Baby.”

Moore and King shared a stage only a few times in their long careers. Enjoy this special performance.
