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).

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.
