Thin Lizzy move Dublin date to the Olympia

They've also pushed back the show till February.

The Thin Lizzy gig, which was controversially scheduled to take place in the Dublin O2 on the opening night of the Vibe For Philo has been switched to the Olympia on February 17. Tickets priced between €33.60 and €38.60 go on sale on Friday August 27.

Lizzy’s 2010 line-up comprises Scott Gorham, Brian Downey, Darren Wharton, Marco Mendoza and new singer Ricky Warwick who also has a new double A-side single, ‘The Whisky Song’/‘The Star Of The County Down’, hitting the racks shortly.

The video for the former was shot at the top of the 335ft Harland and Wolff crane in Warwick’s native Belfast – a not entirely satisfactory state of affairs for a man who suffers from vertigo!
