Thin Lizzy is one of rock music's most recognizable names. The fiery Dublin band exploded onto the scene with a fresh sound, look and attitude. Lead by the incomparable Phil Lynott, the band reached many peaks and influenced generations of musicians with classic tracks such as "Jailbreak", "The Boys Are Back In Town", "Still In Love With You", "Cold Sweat", "Emerald" and "Don't Believe A Word". Most rock historians would agree the pinnacle of their commercial success was in 1983, followed by the bands' premature demise, as they played their last gig in September of 1984. Just two years later, the world was shocked when singer/bassist and founding member Phil Lynott passed away at the age of thirty six.
Twenty six years have passed, the world has changed, but the amazing body of work that is Thin Lizzy still retains all of its vibrancy and influence. A new lineup has formed to take Lizzy's music to a whole new generation of music fans. Led by alumni Scott Gorham, Brian Downey and Darren Wharton (all of whom played in Thin Lizzy with Phil Lynott) the stellar lineup is completed by guitarist Damon Johnson (Alice Cooper, Brother Cane), Bassist Marco Mendoza (Whitesnake, Ted Nugent) and The Almighty's Ricky Warwick on vocals and guitar. The band have already wowed fans and critics alike on a sold out UK tour in Jan/Feb 2011 and a show stealing performances at Download & High Voltage festivals in 2011. A Full US tour in the Autumn of 2011 with Judas Priest was a huge success, re-introducing the band to the stateside fans. Early 2012 saw another full European Headline Tour and further dates with Judas Priest then Guns ‘n Roses led nicely into a European Summer festival run.
In between dates the band are back in the studio working on new material, the first new songs in almost 30 years...... watch this space!
Alongside the new lineup and new material, Universal Music continues it's acclaimed series of re-issues, deluxe and special releases of classic Thin Lizzy material. The latest offerings are deluxe expanded editions of the classic albums "Fighting" and "Nightlife".
