Time: Doors open 7pm
Location: Lydney Town Hall
Concert

Welcome to our colourful, dynamic and exciting tribute show featuring the music of some of the world’s most iconic and influential electric guitar players. Musicians that have shaped pop and rock music over the years – and many that continue to do so. However, it’s difficult to see some of these artists perform their music live, a few are no longer with us, others only touring infrequently. That’s where we come in…the songs we play are faithful live renditions of the original pieces. Although we occasionally indulge ourselves with an interpretation, none of the songs lose the feel of the original recording. We’ve picked our tracks with great care to showcase the work of the greatest guitar icons. We hope you enjoy the show!

Dizzy Lizzy

Date: 16th March 2024
Time: Doors open 7pm
Location: Lydney Town Hall

Dizzy Lizzy have been called the most fantastic tribute dedicated to Phil Lynott, one of Rock’s all time legends.
Dizzy Lizzy have an amazing sound and bring to life the classic 70s & 80s rock band. They will take you back in time to relive that magical era with a superb blend of classic foot stomping rock anthems and rock ballads (The Boys Are Back In Town, Whiskey In the Jar, Emerald, Black Rose, Rosalie, Sarah, Still In Love With You). Dizzy Lizzy are a long established tribute to Thin Lizzy. Since early 1994 their sound and set list faithfully recreate that trademark Lizzy sound. Philomena Lynott has commented that Dizzy Lizzy are ‘the closest tribute to playing her son’s music’ – a sentiment that has rippled through the years.
During their career this acknowledgement has been recognised by many as the closest and convincing tribute to the real thing. They are now becoming one of the country’s leading tributes. Appearing at many prestigious venues, they have headlined the ‘Vibe for Philo’ in Dublin and performed and toured with the original Thin Lizzy guitarist Eric Bell. Eric Bell’s reaction on first seeing the band…’I could only watch three numbers owing to the emotions, the resemblance to Phil and the mannerisms and playing, it was spooky – it made the hairs stand up on the back of my neck…’
They can also be heard on the documentary CD ‘I Am Just A Cowboy’. Based in the Midlands, Dizzy Lizzy tour extensively throughout the UK and have performed as far afield as Los Angeles and Dubai!
Tickets only £18 – available from the Town Hall box office.
