HE played the handsome, charismatic character Ridge Forrester on the long-running soap The Bold and the Beautiful for 25-years, but these days Ronn Moss is happier working on his own creative projects.
The 67-year-old who is excited to return to Perth will bring his show An Intimate Evening with Ronn Moss to the Astor Theatre on March 27.
“I’m looking forward to coming back to Perth it’s been several years,” he said.
“I’ve always shared a similar sense of humour with my Australian friends and for some reason they seem to get my sense of humour which is refreshing.
“I’ve always loved that I can go and say and do anything in Australia and everyone is cool with it, it’s amazing.
“We have a lot of bullsh*t here in America that when you are doing interviews there’s a lot stipulation and censorship that goes on and I come to Australia and it’s a whole different thing – it’s very refreshing.”
Moss who will share clips, stories and songs from his past and present said people attending the show could expect something very different to his previous tours.
“It’ll be myself and my musician friend Jawn Starr, the two of us are going to do a combination of ballads, rock’n’roll, original songs and we are going to stuff that I loved growing up,” he said.
“We will also incorporate some visuals into the show and show things people haven’t seen before – it’ll be an eclectic mix of personal, Bold and the Beautiful and behind the scenes stuff – it will be a little of everything.
The former Player band member, said his number 1 hit song Baby Come Back will also be performed on the night, but according to Moss it will be played a little differently.
“I’ll do an acoustic version of that,” he said.
“I like it better than the original.
“It’s up close and personal and people will really enjoy it.”
And as for whether he will ever reprise his old role on Bold, it doesn’t look promising with the star admitting he stopped watching the show two years before her called it quits in 2012.
“I just don’t have time to watch it,” he said.
“I keep in touch with Katherine (Kelly Lang),Winsor Harmon, some crew members and I see John McCook at functions.
“I’m also going to go hang out with Susan Flannery but I’m just moving on and moving onto other creative avenues and it feels great to do that.
“Leaving the show opened up a whole world of opportunities and I hope the people coming to the show will be open to something they haven’t seen before, the new version of me.”
