JULY NEWS!      29th July 2015, 9:52am

Cha’ mon, y’all –

tighty-whities, budgie-smugglers, uplifters, spanx belly trainers at the ready…IT’S SUMMER! And check us out leading the charge with our recent foray to St Tropez for the Harley Davidson Euro Rally.

STTROP1

Another hard day at the office…

It was a kick-ass weekend lineup, with us sharing the bill with none other than Mott the Hoople/Bad Company legend MICK RALPHS. So, aside from largin’ it in the sun on our beach hut veranda sipping mojitos and Colt 45’s (and a celebratory, if cautious, Warninks advocaat for Julian, natch…), we also got to hear some of the finest ‘choons in classic rock history – ‘Feel Like Making Love’ and ‘Can’t Get Enough of Your Love’ amongst others. Mick, Dickie and the band were all top chaps too, great having a drink and a chat with them all after. For one special moment we actually felt like a real band….sigh.

STTRROP2

Limehouse HQ in St Tropez

It truly was a gig to die for, massive thanks to Suzanne and her team for putting together and involving us in such a magnificent event – and good job we flew out early after fog at Nice airport saw us diverted to Marseille (read: Limehouse in ‘actually on time’ shocker!)…

Diss-repair

Whilst our last gig was an epic event of gargantuan gravitas, brobdinagian boisterousness, preponderous proportion, and generally an all round reet good time chuck, it was also tinged and tainted with a slight misty veil of sadness, imbued with a searing sense of loss and longing when we played the Corn Hall in Diss (why, is that the Simon Bates ‘Our Tune’ music we hear in the distance?). A fantastic turnout, but alas the venue is a listed building and must now close for some extensive repair work. The timescale for this is uncertain at the moment, but we are hoping to make a return in 2017, and wish Angela and all the staff there the very best, we know the Corn Hall will be back. Bigger. Better. Stronger. Faster. And totally bionic once we have rebuilt her. Him? It!

Seaside special

Got the chance to catch up with a couple of Blighty’s bestest tribs when we played at the Giants of Rock event in Southend. Openers were our old buddies ‘Who’s Who’ (some of you will have seen us with them last year at Conkers Ampitheatre in Moira last year). Yes bwoy, a powerhouse of a set that got the crowd fully pumped ‘n’ primed for a full dose of Limehouse, then to close proceedings we had ‘Not the Rolling Stones’ camping it up with moo-ooh-ooh-oves like Jagger, and a knockout set of Stones classics from across the years.

Justice for all…

And a special mention for all of you who rocked up and out at our show at Colchester Arts Centre! We had one of our favourite original acts and Honorary Limehouse Brother, TOMMY JUSTICE – he of the old rocker head on handsome young shoulders – as special guest, and it was HEAVING! Both bands were filming their sets, and we hope to have some live footage up very soon.

Live Life…

And finally, just a quick mention of a couple of new venues for us – always a joyous occasion, what with so many independent still feeling the squeeze and some sadly, even going under. September 25th sees our inaugural at THE ALDRIDGE ARENA in Walsall in the Midlands. And the night before on September 24th, we make our debut at THE LOVESHACK, Durham. Lastly (but not leastly) we also have a new venue in Ipswich – make sure you get down to the MUSIC ROOM on October 10th!! So chaps and chapesses, your patronage and support in that kindly way that you do, will be very much appreciated and welcomed.

STOP PRESS – URGENT ENQUIRY:

We’ve just had a cancellation on SATURDAY 26th SEPTEMBER by a promoter who’s just lost his venue in a bizarre gardening accident. Any venue, promoters or agencies reading that feel they can help us fill this date will not only receive our heartfelt gratitude but also full promotional support by way of national press advertising, e-newsletter and social media support (Facebook,Twitter, Instagram etc) and enough posters and flyers to make a paper-mâché arc to sail into the sunset and bog off with the rich pickings at the end of the night….

Fancy it? Contact us at limehouselizzy@yahoo.co.uk or via our Facebook page, whichever suits.

All our tour dates down to the end of October are on our 'TOUR DATES' page, so pin ‘em on your fridge, tatt ‘em on the inside of your eyelids, screen save ‘em on your phone, scribe ‘em on the bedroom ceiling (but make sure it’s your own!) and…generally anywhere to keep ‘em in mind…

‘Til the next time…

Wayne, Greg, Tim and Lee


JUNE NEWS!      3rd June 2015, 10:27am

Welcome, Lizzy Lovers!

JAILBREAK TOUR 2015…

We came. We performed. And in the words of the Funkadelic maestro George Clinton, WE TORE THE ROOF OF DA SUCKA! Yes, what was definitely the biggest, hardest edged and, well, most badass tour we have ever been involved with, the mighty, “Jailbreak 2015” tour with our sparring partners Livewire the AC/DC show, drew to a close last month. Highlights? Well, they were aplenty but we couldn’t choose between the 2 biggest – the ABC Glasgow, and Shepherds Bush Empire, and here’s why…

So, London and Glasgow, if you enjoyed these gigs, but want to witness the full Limehouse set in all its 3D glory, lookout for the following dates:-

A blockbusting return to London, with our only show ‘up the smoke’ this summer/autumn, we play the legendary Garage in Highbury, London on Sat 4th July.

CLICK HERE TO BUY TICKETS

And for the Glasgow massive, pin a note to the fridge that we are boarding the equally legendary Ferry, Anderston Quay, Glasgow on 1st Oct.

So well received was this tour that rumour, speculation, intimation, hints and innuendo already abound in the darkened corridors of power about a possible repeat next year. We’ll deffo keep you posted. But meanwhile, a heartfelt thanks to all of you in the Limehouse posse who turned out and showed support – you did us proud! And also our Special Forces Crew – Matt, Hard-Rock Harvey (Dave), Nayab and Ben who were simply magnificent in our hour of need, as usual!

GORRA GIG, GUV?

Hmm, we’ve had a gig drop-out on Saturday 19th June. As we have done previously (with fantastic success!), we’re asking if there’s any venues or willing promoters out there who’d like to work with us to fill the date? We give full promotional from local to national backup and support and just ask that any venue that we work with undertake local promotion with the posters and flyers we will provide. Hey and not too far north – we’ve got to be in Southend the day after (beggars? choosy? Dunno what you mean…!). We’ve also had the same for Saturday 10th October, a cancellation, so the same applies if you’re up for it?

‘Til the next time…

Wayne, Greg, Tim and Lee


MARCH NEWS!      11th March 2015, 1:41pm

Welcome, Lizzy Lovers!

Well…this is it! After all the press releases, interviews, well-deserved hype, blah-blah’s and yada-yada’s, the ‘Jailbreak 2015’ tour with our partners in rock LIVEWIRE/DC tour, at last hit the ground running for its’ inaugural launch at both CORONATION HALL, Ulverston last Friday and finally left a very packed DIAMOND LIVE in Doncaster smouldering on Saturday!

HOWEVER…events are starting to run away with us, as the latest news is that HOLMFIRTH is already completely SOLD OUT – and it’s not for another 2 weeks! Possibly a sign of things to come? No matter – if you missed out on this and want to see the show, maybe try MANCHESTER ACADEMY where there are still some tickets available. But, in the words of Van Halen, “fair warning”…

Click flyer above for tickets/info.

So, at the risk of sounding like your nagging other half, make sure you get your tickets early for this tour…

I VANT TO BE ALONE…lest ye forget, we’re still doing our own ‘standalone’ shows until the end of this tour (April), taking place on most Thursdays of each week. And we’re planning a lot of fun with different songs that we’ve been messing with over the months, as both a spot of R&R and also as a contrast to just the Greatest Hits jam that we’ll be doing on the ‘JAILBREAK’ gig. So. if you fancy a whole lot less o’ Rosie and more Lizzy hits ‘n’ bits, come and spend time with us stretching out on Thursday nights…

Speaking of which…

NEW GIGS:

Just added – THE BEACON COURT in Gillingham on 30th April… We were gutted to hear our old mucker Simon Olley is leaving the venue after putting bands on down there for so many years. The Kent Medway towns have a great tradition for live music, and Simon has been an absolute flag bearer for the region. We wish him the very best of luck in his new ventures, and we are calling on ALL of you to come down and help give him a riotous ‘Limehouse’ send off at this one!

BUY TICKETS

Tickets are selling well for newbie, THE GREYHOUND in Beeston, Notts. on 19th March. Hailed as a ‘mini Rock City’, we advise that you get tickets early for this one to ensure entry. As you will know or recent show nearby at the Flowerpot sold out, so…well, we don’t wanna nag ya…again!

BUY TICKETS

Lastly, we will be back at the WYESIDE ARTS CENTRE in Builth Wells on 16th April. Had lots of requests to return to mid Wales, so it’s great to be coming back to such a quality venue. Hopefully doing some more work with the students at Builth Wells High school, and inviting some of them down for the show too! Had a blast last time doing a feature in their school magazine, so we are really looking forward to this one.

Our full gig list down to the end of July follows HERE. Write ‘em down in your diary, shortcut ‘em on your smartphone, home page ‘em on your tablet, put a post-it on the fridge, and tell all your friends! Please help us ‘spread the word around’ and we’ll see you out there…

FEBRUARY NEWS!      15th February 2015, 10:25am

Amazing start to the year with some of our firm faves, and a few newbie venues thrown in!

PromoPic2015

Rammed out in Rochdale – many thanks to Baz Cozens for making that the busiest show down there yet. A return to the Foxlowe Arts Centre in Leek (formerly known as the V Bar), which was packed, great to see so many of you from the Staffs area shaking off the January blues, and good to be back at a venue we used to play regularly before it was re-vamped!

Also must mention two new venues, the Corn Exchange in Stamford, which is a superb seated theatre, so very well run by Judith and her team of dedicated volunteers. The other was chez ‘Muttley’ at his Iron Road Venue in Evesham where trays of ‘dessert shots’ flowed after the gig (you’ve gotta try ‘em!), cue the whole band and crew ricocheting down Evesham High Street looking for a kebab…great venue check it out!

2015-02-06 21.10.29

SOLD OUT at the Customs House South Shields, SOLD OUT at the Flowerpot Derby, SOLD OUT at the Stables Milton Keynes, SOLD OUT at South Street Arts Centre Reading!! What can we say, thank you all for the magnificent support.

NEW GIGS!

Yes due to popular demand, and the legions who have asked us to return, we play the Layton, Blackpool on 5th March, ably assisted by our special guests and good buddies ‘POWER TRIP’.

The Guinness will be flowing, and no doubt a merry jig being danced when we break with tradition and do a Tuesday St Patricks night at the Beaverwood Club in Chislehurst on 17th March.

Lastly, we have another new venue in the shape of the Greyhound in Beeston. This venue has been strongly recommended to us, and is touted as being a mini ‘Rock City’ for midlands gig-goers. This will also serve as a gig for those who were left disappointed after our Derby show sold out, see you there!

Write ‘em down in your diary, put a post-it on the fridge, and tell all your friends! Please help us ‘spread the word around’ and we’ll see you out there…

STARTERS ORDERS…

 

Anyway, back to business, this year kicks off on Friday at the Brickcroft Club in Rochdale, when we link up with the Lancs. crew and our old mucker, and rock promoter extraordinaire, Barry ‘Bazzer’ Cozens of JLC Rock Promotions.

 

We then continue on to a new venue (for us) on Saturday with our first visit to the Corn Exchange in Stamford. We need your support, it would be great to see some of you lot from Bourne, Peterborough, Corby etc. down there for a rousing start to the year!
