Renowned for an action-packed explosion of a show, Limehouse Lizzy will be at the Palladium, Lower Gunstone, Bideford, on Saturday (April 23).

The band continue to keep the spirit of Celtic rock icon Philip Lynott and his band Thin Lizzy alive, well and dominating stages worldwide.

Attention to detail, playful audience interaction and that all important X-factor that leaves you with the feeling of witnessing the real thing, have led to their performance being described as "beyond tribute", by both audience and critics alike.

Following the enormous success of their Live & Dangerous and �Dedication tours, the band embarked upon their Into the Limelight 2008 tour to tie in with their appearance on an episode of BBC2's Arena documentary series of the same name. The tour travelled as far as a headline slot at the Rhodes Rock festival in Greece, and the Virgin Atlantic Music festival in Barbados. The band appeared alongside diverse world music acts, and played a Thin Lizzy set representing the celtic rock genre.

For 2010 the tour continues to explore and celebrate the artistic and musical legacy of Philip Lynott.

Expect more of the Celtic influenced tracks like Whisky in the Jar and Black Rose, among the usual razzmatazz and classic tracks The Boys are Back in Town, Sarah and many more.
