Legendary Thin Lizzy Added to Line-Up For Inaugural London Irish Village 2012
The legendary Thin Lizzy have been added to the line-up for the London Irish Village 2012 which takes place at Under The Bridge from July 27th – August 10th. The band will perform two very special intimate London shows ‘for the fans’ on August 7th & 8th.
Thin Lizzy guitarist Scott Gorham commented “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!”
Thanks to huge hits such as Whiskey in the Jar, Jailbreak and The Boys Are Back in Town, Thin Lizzy will go down in history as one of the great rock bands and are one of Ireland’s proudest and most successful exports.
Double bill of Frankie Gavin & De Dannan + The Fureys also confirmed
The London Irish Village nourishes its roots on Tuesday 31 July as globally acclaimed bands Frankie Gavin & De Dannan and The Fureys play Under The Bridge.
Foremost interpreters of the Celtic musical tradition, the two groups are fresh from wowing crowds at the London Feis. The Fureys are responsible for some of the most stirring Irish music of the last 30 years, including ‘Green Fields of France’ and ‘When You Were Sweet Sixteen.’
The hugely influential De Dannan have drawn on Gaelic sources to explore rock, classical and bluegrass, and brought singers Dolores Keane and Mary Black to worldwide audiences. In Frankie Gavin they boast probably the world’s greatest Irish fiddle player – employed by the likes of the Rolling Stones and Elvis Costello.
This will be an intimate night of sing-along’s, sentiment and stunning musicianship.
