Thin Az Lizzy - The Vibe for Philo - 3 & 4 Jan 2018

Wednesday 03 January 2018, 10:00pm

Thin Az Lizzy
Thin Az Lizzy is the longest established and longest running tribute act for Thin Lizzy. It has been running non stop now for 22 years.

Philomena Lynnot (Phil's mother) endorses Thin Az Lizzy as being the closest to Thin Lizzy and Johnny D Fox's voice as being the closest in sound and clarity to Phil. It resonates in the tones and raucous charm of Phil. Even Johnny's mannerisms on stage mimic Phil. 

The show covers all the Lizzy classics right from the Eric Bell era to the immortal 'Live and Dangerous' album.  The Az Lizzys are looking forward to rocking Clonsilla for the first time on Saturday 9th December . Included in the line up are Johnny D Fox, Willie Owens, Paul Owens and Eddie . The guys will be on stage at 10pm which is unmissable for any ardent Thin Lizzy fans .

If you are a Thin Lizzy fan, you will love this show.  If you  don't know Thin Lizzy music you will be introduced to the music and you will love it. 

Incidentally, do you know where the name Thin Lizzy came from.  Well it came from the character "Tin Lizzie" in the comic The Dandy. The "h" was deliberately added to mimic the way the word "thin" is pronounced in a Dublin accent.

Philip Parris "Phil" Lynott was born on 20 August 1949 and died on 4 January 1986. He was an Irish musician, singer and songwriter and was the founding member of Thin Lizzy.  In addition, he was the principal songwriter, lead vocalist and bassist.

If you haven't got your tickets for the Main Event yet then unfortunately the bad news is that all tickets for the 4th January are now sold out. The good news, however is that tickets are still available for the Pre-Vibe on the 3rd January.

They say you learn a lot about your friends when you're down. These past weeks have been some learning curve. The kind words have been moving, the love abundant, and the well wishes and offers of assistance overwhelming. We had hope to stage a real cracker of a show in 2018 but as the general state of our collective health declined it seemed unlikely that we would achieve anything. But reinvigorated by the love and wishes of the greater "Lizzy Family" out there, and the generous offer of friends to step into the breech, we felt it was impossible to let so many people down, especially those who have already booked to fly into Dublin next January.

So, it may not be what we had planned but it will be a cracker. It may not be Vicar Street but it will be at Whelan's. It might not be quite the 32nd Vibe, but let’s just say it might be 31½. Oh! And there will be a Pre Vibe on the 3rd...

Here I Go Again - the 32nd Vibe for Philo takes place at Whelan's, Wexford Street Dublin thursday 4th January 2018.

The Pre-Vibe also takes place at Whelan's Wednesday 3rd January 2018.
