Irish rock legend Phil Lynott would have turned 65 today and team Hot Press will be celebrating the event in style this Friday as Julie Feeney, David Geraghty (Join Me In The Pines / Bell X1), Gavin James and Prima Quartet set to play at 'Remembering Philip: An Evening with Philomena Lynott.'
Hot Press, in association with Radio Nova, is set to host a unique event, Remembering Philip: An Evening with Philomena Lynott, in Dublin’s Fallon & Byrne this Friday August 22, to celebrate Ireland’s original rock icon, Phil Lynott.
Some of Ireland’s most top artists will perform their favourite Philo songs on the night, to honour the Thin Lizzy frontman... Straight from his headliner in Whelan’s last Saturday, singer-songwriter Gavin James will play for guests in the intimate Dublin venue and there will be also very special performances by David Geraghty (Join Me In The Pines / Bell X1), and Julie Feeney, who will appear at the event ahead of her four New York shows in September. The brilliant Prima Quartet will also play on the night, giving Lynott's timeless music a new twist.
The dinner, which takes place just two days after what would have been Philo’s 65th birthday, will also include a very special curated Q&A with Philomena Lynott.
Celebrating the life and career of Ireland’s original rock star, attendees will be taken on an inspiring journey through the life, the loves and the music of rock’s ultimate romantic hero – and allow you the opportunity to meet Philomena and gain an extraordinary insight into Philip’s personal life and his time with Thin Lizzy.
This one-off event will truly be a unique and fitting tribute to one of Ireland’s greatest ever rock stars, the late, great Phil Lynott.
'Remembering Philip' is part of the the Philip Lynott pledge initiative, which will also see Hot Press produce two lavish limited-edition books. Philip Lynott: Still In Love With You – The Life and Music of Ireland’s Legendary Rock Icon, which will draw from a remarkable collection of personal archive material, has now gone into the production cycle, with writing and designing currently taking place. They will be produced as a Luxury A4 Hardback Book and a Deluxe Large-Format Super Book – and can be still be ordered from [link]pledgemusic.com/philiplynott[/link] before the production cycle ends!
