Dorothy Moore will start a musical tour October 1, 2009 for eighteen days. She will be performing dates with the David Gest My Life Concert Extravaganza. Moore, best known for her song Misty Blue, will join pop and soul artists like Russell Tompkins Jr. and the New Stylistics, Percy Sledge, Billy Paul, Peabo Bryson, James Ingram, Jean Knight, Deniece Williams, William Bell and others. Legend actress Jane Russell will be honored at a gourmet dinner and performance at Cathedral Church, Liverpool.

The concert sites include the Journal Tyne Theater, Sheffield City Hall, Southport Theater and Liverpool Philharmonic Hall located in Liverpool, London and Newcastle.

"When Tito Jackson is in England, he tours with us. I hope to get visit with him this time to tell him how sad I was when I heard he lost Michael" Moore said. Reviewers of her performance in January 2009 wrote that Moore "... slayed the audience" and "She killed it!" "My British audiences make me feel so welcome. I tell them about Jackson, Mississippi where I from. I'll be touring on my birthday, October 13. It's a great way to celebrate," Moore said.
