HAPPY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!!

“Twas the gigs before Christmas…”


Just to post what will probably be the final roundup of the years news and happenings.


We’re playing the Academy in Manchester on February 27th which is always a monster of a gig. Further to this, some of you may remember as far back as the ’90’s when we played host to several guest spots for our old mate RICH DAVENPORT and his then-band Through The Storm. Following further stints as a stand-up comedian (!) and radio dj (a role which he still occupies – check out http://www.totalrock.com/), he has now emerged with his new hard rock crew, THE BLACKMAIL SNAPS.


Rich and the band will be guesting with us at the Academy, where they will be showcasing tracks from their new album ‘When One Door Close, Smash A Window”. Worship Metal Uk reviewed them thus: “……at times recalling the blue-collar authenticity of AC/DC but with a distinctly British edge… with a little UFO and Thin Lizzy thrown in for good measure…” More news in the New Year.

 

And, oh yeah – it looks like a couple of January’s early gigs will be going ahead without Wayne! He’s undergoing a shoulder operation in the second week of the New Year that will put him out of action for a week or two. However, we have a truly excellent replacement stepping up to undertake bass and vocal duties – more details to follow in the New Year’s newsletter (bah – don’t you just hate it when people do that?!)


Allow us  take this opportunity to wish every one of you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! 



We cannot thank you all enough for your tremendous support throughout the year, and for keeping the fires burning for the memory of our hero Philip Lynott simply by coming along and rocking out with us at so many shows.

NOVEMBER NEWS!

Hey You. Yes, YOU!

As autumn deigns to bestow it's beautiful colours upon us, from the russet hues of falling leaves, to the very same of Julians hair dye, so is the need for an update of all things Limehouse, as we enter our busiest time of year. All of our tour dates down until Christmas follow below, so please think early of  loved ones and bestow the gift that keeps on giving, the feted Limehouse gig ticket...

We had a bangin' summer, although tinged with a touch of sadness as we played our last show at the Square in Harlow. Unfortunately this staple of the Essex gig circuit is being demolished, but all is not lost as it is to be relocated to a spanking new premises in due course. We’ll keep you posted on developments and hopefully play at the new place when it opens…

One of our first shows back after the summer break was a blistering double-header at Conkers Amphitheatre in Moira, reuniting us with our brothers in fake rockness, Livewire DC. With a turnout of over 700 punters shoehorned in, not only was it a riotous assembly, they literally drank the bars dry! We cannot thank the esteemed promotor, organiser and general all-round top geezer ‘Pete the Shirt’ for not only masterminding this special event and making it it the success that it is, but for also including us in so many of them.

 

                          

 

 

We have had some great shows since Conkers too - BANGED OUT in Burgess Hill, SOLD OUT in Sudbury, MOBBED in Mickleton, FULLY-LOADED in Leicester, and TOPPED UP in Tamworth!!

On the subject of Tamworth, the Assembly Rooms will be closing for a full refurb in Feb 2016 and will be shut for about 18 months. Watch this space though, we will be returning once the work is done and this venue returns better than ever...

Urgent, URGENT! Also, hot off the press, we have just announced a NEW GIG on Saturday 19th December. We are playing a new venue, the NEW CONTINENTAL in PRESTON. Hopefully this will replace the now defunct 53 Degrees, and a perfect setting for the Limehouse Lancashire Christmas knees-up! Tickets are available on line HERE. Get 'em early this will be packed!!

Keep an eye out for our advert in the Sunday Mirror on the 15th Nov, and don't forget to shoot us an email back if you have any suggestions for a venue where you'd like to see us play.

 

‘Til the next time...
