Phil Lynott would have turned 65 this week, and in his honour the Thin Lizzy tribute act, Remembering Lizzy, will play a special show at Monroe’s Live tomorrow night.
Remembering Lizzy is truly an authentic tribute to the great man and the band has previously been joined onstage by Phil’s mother, Philomena Lynott, for a rendition of ‘Dancing in the Moonlight’.
Drummer Frank Mulveen is also an old acquaintance of Lynott, whose band Skull played support to Thin Lizzy in the early 70s and performed live with them on stage in the Hangar Ballroom in Salthill on the same night as they appeared live performing ‘Whiskey in the Jar’ on RTÉ.
As well as ‘Dancing in the Moonlight’ and ‘Whiskey in the Jar’, audiences can expect to hear other Lizzy classics such as ‘Sarah’, ‘Jailbreak’, and ‘The Boys are back in Town’, in this ultimate Lizzy tribute.
Remembering Lizzy played their first Thin Lizzy tribute show in 1991 in Galway city to mark the fifth anniversary of Phil’s death and have been keeping his memory and music alive ever since. This promises to be an unmissable show for all fans of Thin Lizzy.
Doors for Remembering Lizzy open at 10pm and admission is €10. For more information, see www.monroes.ie
