ARE YOU OUT THERE? LAST CALL for this week’s gigs, especially hot on the heels of last weeks’s 2 epic sell-outs.

SWAN-SONG…this Friday 4th sees a welcome and exciting return to Swansea, South Wales in the form of THE PATTI PAVILLION, which has recently been re-imagined as a live music venue. We played there, oooh, years ago - c’mon, you know that, yes, we are THAT old - and it was a top venue back then. The venue has told us that tickets sales are looking ‘very robust’ and also to expect a sizeable walk-up. Bring it on, we say!

THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK…Saturday 5th sees a return to THE EMPIRE THEATRE in Blackburn, why almost a mere stroll away from our knobhead singist, Wayne. Check back on one of our recent Instagram posts to see how beautiful this theatre is - very atmospheric. Suitably, the band have promised a scaled down version of Kiss Me Kate as a warm up….

Shall we take a sneak-a-peek into the Faberge´ Egg that is October?

WITNEY WHO’S-TURN…Oxford, once a stronghold for LL, has proved slightly patchy of late in finding a consistent ‘home’. However, the excellent Mill Arts Centre in Banbury (next February 7th) aside, where we’ve had countless sell-outs over the years, there’s been a little midweek venue stealth-creeping up on the outside which is now turning into a great gig. We’re speaking of the ignominiously-but-gloriously monikored FAT LILS in Witney on Thursday 17th…

GONE BUT NOT FOR COTTON…is there any point in mentioning THE COTTON CLUB in Dartford on Friday 18th? Apart from the fact that it’s a textbook club venue, it’s now well documented that this gig sold out in advance weeks ago. So mentioning it yet again it would be just piling on the agony for all those who have been clamouring for tickets since. So we shan’t.

GIGGIN’ IN THE RIGGIN’…THE RIGGER in Newcastle-Under-Lyme, Staffs., is fast taking over as a go-to venue for us in an area that has given us some truly memorable venues over the years. The BBC2 ‘Into The Limelight’ tribute documentary which centred on the legendary (but now sadly defunct) Limelight Club, in which we were fortunate enough to feature heavily, was filmed in nearby Crewe and highlighted a great rock music scene centering in and around the Staffordshire/Potteries area (aren’t you just loving the history lesson?). Come see us there on Saturday 20th to help us keep rock’s dream alive, duck…

GOING SOUTH(PORT)BOUND….Friday 25th sees us in the heart of the once-genteel seaside hamlet of Southport for another visit to the equally genteel ATKINSON ARTS CENTRE. A beautiful venue with acoustically treated music rooms gives a perfect platform to hear how we can totally mullah the songs of Thin Lizzy…

B’RUDE NOT TO…..bringing October’s gigs to a close - and in some spectacular fashion - is the mighty BRUDENELL SOCIAL CLUB. A slackers paradise by day and a hip and contemporary band after dusk, our last gig there was was a total roof-raiser. Well, with being on the doorstep of the bonkers Yorkshire Barmy Army massive - what else would you expect? Tickets are rocketing out as we speak…


HOLMFIRTH BOUND….at risk of being a tad previous, we’re obliged to give a mention to what is becoming our almost traditional Christmas Hoedown at the heaven-on-earth gig that is the HOLMFIRTH PICTUREDROME on December 28th, nestling beautifully between the Christmas and New Year festivities. Not least because we’re brimming with excitement to announce that our Very Special Guests are none other than the delectable WOMEN IN ROCK, who are causing quite a stir on the live circuit, if you didn’t already know, with their visually and aurally stunning renditions of the biggest female-fronted hits in rock. This gig will be NOTHING SHORT OF SPECTACULAR!!

’Til the next time…





Review: Limehouse Lizzy at Nantwich Civic Hall      4th October 2018, 3:12pm

Here is a review of an earlier show this year in Nantwich Civic Hall, courtesy of the The Nantwich News:

 

In a hall crammed with ageing rockers, fading denim and graying hair, hundreds of Thin Lizzy fans rolled back the years in front of one of the legendary band’s best tribute acts.And age was no barrier. By the end, the floor in front of the Nantwich Civic Hall stage was packed with head-banging air guitarists thanks to a memorable show by Limehouse Lizzy.

Wayne Ellis, Greg Alcock, Craig Price and Aid Todd have been delighting Lizzy fans for 25 years now. Yet, their energy and sheer joy at performing shone through last night as if it was their very first tribute to Phil Lynott and his gang From the moment they blasted on to the stage with mid 70s hit ‘Jailbreak, the crowd was gripped even if most were a little wary of ditching the zimmers to take to the floor.Other massive hits followed in the first half, including ‘The Rocker’, ‘Dancin’ in the Moonlight’ and ‘Black Rose’, providing an excellent blend of raw power and smooth melody. They finished the first part with two of the band’s later classics, ‘Chinatown’ and ‘Killer on the Loose’, the original reaching the top 10 back in the early 1980s.

The crowd’s creaking joints were suitably lubricated by the second half, and Limehouse packed the floor out with a series of stunning songs.Searing hits such as ‘Are You Ready?’ and ‘Cold Sweat’ were mixed in with more brilliant hits like ‘Waiting for an Alibi’ and ‘Don’t Believe a Word’. They built to a resounding finish as their powerful ballad ‘Still In Love With You’ and of course finishing with ‘Boys Are Back in Town’. The Civic was bouncing and the audience had its wish granted with a memorable encore performance of ‘Whiskey in the Jar’.

A quite stunning show which transported many of us – me included – back to those glorious hard rock years of the 70s and early 80s.Let’s hope these Lizzy stars continue to defy their age for another 25 years! 


AND HERE IS THE NEWS      11th September 2018, 8:40pm
Bonjour, Olá, Wassup & Wha’gwan?
 
Ready for a ride in the Lizzymobile? We’re rested, refreshed and rarin’ to go….
 
FAT CHANCE…
A return to FAT LILS in Witney, Oxfordshire on September 20th ends a 4 year hiatus away. We never really got the chance to establish this restaurant-cum-music venue on our roster, so we’re looking forward to unfinished business. The ace burgers have nowt to do with it, honest guvnor… TICKETS/INFO. HERE
 
PASS THE ‘PORT…
Following on from last year’s debut appearance, September 22nd, sees a much anticipated return to the magnificent gem hitherto known as THE ATKINSON in the quintessentially  English picturesque seaside town of  Southport. An atmospheric stage and great acoustics straddle breathtaking decor… a ‘proper’ venue one could say, what’s not to like? Please note, ties and leather chaps are the strict dress code… TICKETS/INFO. HERE
 
THWAITES FOR IT….
Please be in attendance for our inaugral in Blackburn on October 6th, at the THWAITES EMPIRE THEATRE. Yes, it’s a newbie and we’d love to make a big impression in order to get the all-important invite back in ’19. We need a full-house - and we ain’t talking bingo (are you gonna bingo?) TICKETS/INFO. HERE
 
FRUIT’S OFF…
Oh woe, news of the demise of that grape gig, Fruit in city of  Hull left us all melon-choly. Fear not! We’ve managed to orange an equally suitable pear-ing at O’RILEYS (oh really? No - O’RILEYS!) on October 11th, which is fast becoming the go-to music venue of choice in the manor. We’ll apple-y relocate (groan!)… TICKETS/INFO. HERE
 
GO GREEN FOR ‘18…
Do you realise that our gig in BADDLEY GREEN in Stoke on October 19th will be our last foray into the Potteries for the final time this year? And of course it’s pretty much always over subscribed, with such a raucous, totally ‘up-for-it’ crowd. Come on down - or up - and jostle your way to the front and wave your hands in the air like yer Spanx won’t tear… TICKETS/INFO. HERE
 
ALL HAIL THE APOLLO CREED…
It has been piggin’ AGES since we’ve been to Scarborough - we mean, like, years! THE APOLLO BAR lends us its stage on October 20th for a well overdue return! Their aim is to pick up on the heady days of the PSV Club and the inglorious Murrays Bar, which is tickety-boo by us… TICKETS/INFO HERE
 
LEYTON IS THE NEW BLACK…
The last time we played Blackpool was when we had a magnificent gig at the bangin’ LEYTON SOCIAL back in ‘17. Why, they even put a runway out into the audience for us…can you imagine the clashing of egos as we jostled for space on that one?? Then….nothing. Nowt, Nada, NISH!. It all went quiet. So you can imagine our joy when young Arron inflated his cojones, took a deep breath and only went and bought the blessed place - and gave us November 10th for a relaunch - huzzah!  Bare-asss  skinny-dipping in the sea after, anyone? Brrrrrrrrr, not on your nelly…. TICKETS/INFO HERE
 
Please note that because we love you and care about your welfare, wellbeing and future of your children, we try to make an earlier start on Thursday gigs in order to accommodate last buses, babysitters, work in the morning etc. So stage times will be between 8 and 8.30pm with performance endings as close to 10.30pm as possible. The fact that our hotel bars tend to shut at midnight has absolutely no bearing whatsoever on this public information nugget.
 
’Til the next time…
