Limehouse Lizzy set for date at Barry's Memo
4:40pm Saturday 6th October 2012 in News
LIMEHOUSE Lizzy, officially one of the hardest working bands in the UK, play the Memorial Hall, Barry, on October 26.
They were accredited for their live shows by the Performing Rights Society in December 2011 and received their certificate from PRS Chairman (and respected songwriter) Guy Fletcher OBE.
Renowned for an action-packed pyrothechnic-fuelled explosion of a show, Limehouse Lizzy continue to keep the spirit of Celtic rock icon Philip Lynott and his band Thin Lizzy alive, well and dominating stages worldwide.
The band have also added a tribute into their show to ex-Thin Lizzy guitarist (and world renowned solo artist), the late Gary Moore.
Attention to detail, playful audience interaction and that all important X-factor that leaves you with the feeling of witnessing the real thing have led to their performance being described as 'beyond tribute', by both audience and critics alike.
Following the enormous success of their Live & Dangerous and Dedication tours, the band embarked upon their Into the Limelight 2008 tour to tie in with their appearance on an episode of BBC2's Arena documentary series of the same name.
The tour travelled as far as a headline slot at a Rock festival in Greece, and the Virgin Atlantic Music festival in Barbados. The band appeared alongside diverse world music acts, and played a Thin Lizzy set representing the celtic rock genre.
In 2012 the band's European tour continues to explore and celebrate the artistic and musical legacy of the hard-living, hard-rocking, yet at times surprisingly tender and romantic artist that was Philip Lynott. This year they will be appearing in the UK, Ireland, Germany, France, Holland and Belgium.
Expect more of the Celtic influenced tracks like Whisky in the Jar and Black Rose, amongst the usual razzamatazz and classic tracks The Boys are Back in Town, Sarah and many others we've come to expect from one of the most highly rated acts on the circuit.
Show starts 8pm. For further details or tickets at £10 each, telephone the venue box office on 01446 738622 or go online at www.limehouselizzy.com
