Thin Lizzy Review – Wolverhampton Civic Hall

Posted on 29 April 2012 by Chris Knight

Are you ready? We get asked as the curtain falls and ‘boom’ the boys are back in town…..well, relatively speaking and of course minus Phil Lynott.  This current incarnation pay testament to Lynotts music writing. Dual guitars and with classic members Scott Gorham, Brian Downey and Darren Wharton you know it’s going to be a good show!

There are no comparisons to draw between ex almighty front man Ricky Warwick and Phil Lynott perhaps other than there love for Rock and Roll, and that’s pretty refreshing! All too often bands look to drag themselves out of the grave, reform and stick a sound-alike on the end of the black spongy thing – this is not what these guys are here to do!

From the opener ‘Are You Ready’ to the beautifully delivered ‘Still In Love With You’ there was a rollercoaster of power and craft in the Wolverhampton Civic Hall that night.  It’s the sort of gig that even if you so much as place one toe outside of the auditorium to get a beer you will be sucked back in by a ‘Killer On The Loose’, beaten over the head by some ‘Whiskey In The Jar’ before witnessing a ‘Massacre’……. But that’s just my opinion.. .’don’t believe a word’?!!
