Officially named as one of the hardest working live acts in the UK, the fantastic Limehouse Lizzy make a welcome return to Forum Waterford this coming Friday, August 17th. Now celebrating their 19th anniversary as a band, Limehouse Lizzy are without question, one of the finest and most successful tribute bands on the live circuit and their stirring and detailed tribute to the late great, Phil Lynott and his band, Thin Lizzy is definitely not to be missed.
Richly rewarded in 2001 with the title "Live Band Of The Year" by Guitarist Magazine, the accolades and reviews of Limehouse Lizzy's live performances have been truly outstanding. Radio Times Magazine said: "If you're sceptical about tribute acts, you won't be after seeing Limehouse Lizzy". The Guardian declared: "Limehouse Lizzy's front-man Wayne Ellis, an uncanny ringer for Phil Lynott"..., while the highly respected BBC2 arts entertainment programme Arena, described Limehouse Lizzy's stage show as: "Superb entertainment for more than a decade…fantastic live music". Limehouse Lizzy have toured the world, garnered great acclaim from both music critics and Thin Lizzy fans alike and, if any further proof were needed, Limehouse Lizzy were accredited for their live shows by the Performing Rights Society in December 2011, and received their award from PRS Chairman and Ivor Novello award-winning songwriter (Elvis Presley, Ray Charles, Tom Jones) Guy Fletcher OBE. Can you name another tribute band with such a distinguished CV? No, neither can I.
Fans old & new will be treated to note-perfect Thin Lizzy classics such as; "The Boys are back in Town", "Jailbreak", "Dancing in the Moonlight", "Whiskey in the Jar", plus choice album cuts when Limehouse Lizzy play Forum Waterford this coming Friday, August 17th.

Google AlertWhen a company which has it's European Headquarters here in Ireland is called 'evil' and 'immoral' by M.P.s in The House of Commons you tend to sit up and take notice. The particular company that was being referred to was Google and the reason it had enraged M.P.s in London was because even though it has a big operation there and conducts a lot of business there it pays no corporate tax.
