Thin Lizzy Release New 'Ultimate' Box-Set & Announce Two
Intimate London Dates -
When the current Thin Lizzy line-up, which consists of Brian Downey, Scott Gorham, Darren Wharton, Marco Mendoza, Ricky Warwick & Damon Johnson, announced they were planning on releasing a new album, sceptical fans took to forums and blogs to criticize the decision.
However, we're pretty sure the recent release of the 'ultimate Thin Lizzy' box-set will have hardcore fans reaching for their wallets. And at the very reasonable price of £24.99, it's even more of reason to top your 'Lizzy' collection with this selection of classic albums housed in a gate-fold replica wallet all with the original masters & artwork.
The Thin Lizzy set consists of the following albums:
Johnny the Fox (1976)
Bad Reputation (1977)
Black Rose (1979)
In related news the band have revealed they are scheduled to perform at two very special intimate London shows 'for their fans' at Chelsea's Under The Bridge venue at Stamford Bridge, which is the home of Chelsea Football club. Thiz Lizzy will perform as part of the special Irish themed shows during the Olympic Games in London. The dates are August 7th & 8thy 2012.
Scott Gorham commented (via MetalTalk):
"After having a phenomenal year and a half on the road, including some great shows with Guns n' Roses last month, we jumped at the chance to play a couple of dates at the London Irish Village 2012 at Under the Bridge to give something back to the London fans who have been so loyal to us. These are intimate shows in a state of the art venue with very limited tickets available, and will be our only London shows for the rest of this year, so will be very special. We may even throw in a surprise or two!"
