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.

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…

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”…

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!

It’s now been some time since yours truly (international division) have returned from our overseas Lizzy-standard bearing mission – and what a blast it was! A special THANK YOU should go out to Herve and his crew at the Blue Devils rock bar in Arras for stepping in at a very late hour to provide a fab likkul gig to break up our trek from Calais to Bensheim, Germany. A great bar, fabulous hospitality…sigh, why can’t they all be like this? 

 

But the icing on the Krispy Kreme (please note, Limehouse also favour other brands of doughnut and other such sugar-laden, dough based, fat-knacker comestibles) had to be on our night off, when the boys were invited as guests of legendary Californian hard-rockers Y&T at their gig at the Turock venue, Essen. Hob-nobbing, rubbing shoulders and general carousing and libation ensued a-plenty afterwards, as can be seen with Tim Lee and their NBF, drum supremo Mike Vanderhule….

Prior to our oversea mission, Holmfirth Picturedrome weaved its’ usual joyous magic which, to be honest, was easy when aided and abetted by an attendance of over 500! Gi-normous thanks to our special guests on the night, ‘Journey To Toto’, a tribute to…aww c’mon, have we really gotta say?! The following night around 300 of you turned up at The Grand, Clitheroe to help us round off one of the busiest and best weekends of the year.

 

Tah’night there’s gonna be a …” meanwhile, 2015 is already shaping up to be a burster – for instance, have we already mentioned the behemoth that is shaping up to be the ‘Jailbreak’ double-headline tour with Livewire and us? Are you sure we haven’t? Well…just in case…we’ve got the mutha of all tribute tours lined up with the bossest DeeCee facsimile, truss’ mi star, true dat (as all those who enter the Little Jamaica wing of Limehouse Towers are wanton to utter). Dates below…

Pssst, WANNASEE summink… we’ve had a bit of a dearth of festivals of late, so an early mention for the what is growing to be one of the coolest tribute festivals, the WANNASEE Tribute Festival in Bishop Auckland. Yours truly are actually appearing on the Sunday (May 24th), which is rock night with tributes to the likes of AC/DC, Aerosmith, Whitesnake, Metallica and er, oh yeh, THIN LIZZY to name but a few. More info HERE.
