Thin Lizzy To Play Final Show
Thin Lizzy are moving forward as Black Star Riders after one final concert date over the weekend, Hennemusic reports. The band, who has recently announced their decision to change name, will play the Virgin Australia Stadium in Mackay, Australia on Saturday, as the opening act on the KISS/Motley Crue tour. After touring the past few years as Thin Lizzy, the lineup adopted the new band name to start recording a new album with a clean slate, and out of respect to the legacy of the late Phil Lynott. "Tomorrow is the last show that Thin Lizzy will be playing for quite some time," posted singer Ricky Warwick. "I would like to take this opportunity to say from the bottom of my heart how much of a privilege, honor and dream come true this experience has been. To have spent the last 3 years being part of such a fantastic legacy has been amazing. I would like to thank Darren Wharton and Brian Downey for their musicianship and friendship and wish them all the best in all their future endeavors. I would to thank all of you out there for your past and continued support. And of course Mr. Phil Lynott for letting me stand beside your shoes, you have taught me so much." "The passion, soul and intensity of these great songs will continue along with the passion, soul and intensity of the new songs as we go forward," he continues, "... with Scott [Gorham], Marco [Mendoza], Damon [Johnson], Jimmy [DeGrasso] and myself ... Vive La Black Star Riders!! Are You Ready? Love and Respect, RW" Black Star Riders recorded their debut album, "All Hell Breaks Loose", in January with producer Kevin Shirley. The project will be released worldwide on the following dates: 05/21 Japan 05/22 - Sweden 05/24 Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Finland, Norway, Australia 05/27 UK, France, BeNeLux, Poland, Czech Republic, Denmark, Spain, Portugal, Hungary, Greece, Ireland 05/28 US, Canada, Italy, South America
