Gig Of The Week: Thin Lizzy
WHO: Thin Lizzy
WHERE: Plymouth Pavilions
WHEN: Tuesday, January 31`
Lizzy are back on the road. And the current line-up are getting massive acclaim for the way they’re keeping the band’s legacy alive.
The current set list is stuffed with classics from the golden era of one of the all-time great British bands.
“I’d say that it mostly concentrates on the classic Lizzy Era from 75-80, with a couple of songs either side for good measure,” says frontman Ricky Warwick.
And the band are varying the set every night.
“We usually change at least one song per night.”
Joining Warwick in the current line-up are guitarists Scott Gorham and Damon Johnson, bassist Marco Mendoza, keyboard player Darren Dean Wharton and drummer Brian Downey. And later this year, there will be a new box set from Lizzy, featuring previously unreleased songs and recordings which have just been rediscovered.
Special guests on this tour are Clutc. And, says Warwick, they’re getting a great reception.
“Clutch are going down very well. They are a great band and a nice fit with the Lizzy audience.”
After Plymouth, the rest of the UK dates (all in February) are:
Wed. 1: Cardiff St. David’s Hall
Fri. 3: Brighton Dome
Sat. 4: London Hammersmith Apollo
