Lizzy tribute back in the area

Tribute act Limehouse Lizzy will be performing the greatest hits of Thin Lizzy in the Darwin Suite at Derby’s Assembly Rooms on Saturday, November 9.

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.

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 And 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.

The tour travelled as far as a headline slot at the Rhodes 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.

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.

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.

Doors open at 7.30pm. Admission is £13. Call 01332 255800 or 01332 834438.
