Limehouse boys are back!

Worcester Editorial 17th Sep, 2014 Updated: 19th Oct, 2016

ONE OF the hardest working bands in the UK is set to bring its action-packed pyrotechnic-fuelled explosion of a show to the Marrs Bar in Worcester next month.

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, Gary Moore who sadly passed away last year.

Attention to detail, playful audience interaction and that all important X-factor that leaves the audience 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” & ˜Dedication” tours, the band embarked upon their “Into the Limelight” 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 2014 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.

The band have just completed a mammoth jaunt across mainland Europe in 2013, and have travelled through seven countries whilst breaking new territories with their first shows in Denmark and the Czech Republic.

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.

Limehouse Lizzy play the Marrs Bar in Pierpoint Street, Worcester on Thursday, October 9 at 9pm. Tickets cost £11 and can be bought from the box office on 01905 613336 or online at www.limehouselizzy.com
