According to Blabbermouth.net, Thin Lizzy will support Guns N' Roses on their upcoming U.K. tour.

Commented Thin Lizzy guitarist Scott Gorham: "To tour with a band the caliber of Guns N' Roses is an honor and a privilege. Being on the road with a great band who are also great friends is the perfect way to go. It's like one big family, so [we] can't wait to see you all out there."

The dates are as follows:

05/19 - Capital FM Arena - Nottingham 05/20 - Echo Arena - Liverpool 05/23 - Metro Radio Arena - Newcastle 05/25 - SECC - Glasgow 05/26 - LG Arena - Birmingham 05/29 - Manchester Arena - Manchester 05/31 - O2 Arena - London 06/01 - O2 Arena - London

For more than forty years, Thin Lizzy has been delivering its brand of rock 'n' roll to audiences all over the world. Even with the untimely passing of legendary frontman Phil Lynott twenty six years ago, the band has continued on. Over the years, many rock luminaries have graced the ranks of Thin Lizzy, including the likes of Brian Robertson, Snowy White and the late Gary Moore. Def Leppard's resident guitar wizard Vivian Campbell joined the band for their 2011 European tour. When Def Leppard called Vivian back to their camp, Guns N' Roses guitarist Richard Fortus joined the boys on their European festival run last summer. Continuing on in the tradition of top-notch performers, the members of Thin Lizzy last fall announced that veteran guitar player Damon Johnson has joined their ranks as a permanent member.

    This is just one of those articles meant to generate comments ranging from: "WTF!? HE SAID G'NR IS A LEGENDARY BAND ITS NOT EVEN G'NR" But maybe, the variety will range to: "WTF!? HE SAID G'NR IS A LEGENDARY BAND ITS NOT EVEN G'NR"
