Played at Graspop Metal Meeting

Not everyone was happy when the remaining members of Thin Lizzy decided to keep the band alive following the demise of their band leader and figurehead Phil Lynott. Although the line-up underwent a number of changes over the years, guitarist Scott Gorham always managed to find excellent musicians willing to keep the legacy alive. For a long time the band refused to put out any new material under the original band name out of respect for Lynott, leading some critics to claim it was all about the money. Nothing could be further from the truth, however, as illustrated by the four albums with new material they’ve released in the meantime, of which ‘Another State of Grace (2019) is the most recent. The new albums still have that typical Thin Lizzy feel, proving that the Irish bard’s legacy is just as relevant as ever. Needless to say the set list will also include some legendary Lizzy classics. The boys are back in town! (#GMM21)
