Dizzy Lizzy are a fantastic live tribute act, dedicated to one of Rock’s all time legends ‘Phil Lynott’ & THIN LIZZY. Established in 1994, their sound & set-list faithfully recreate that trademark Lizzy sound.
Philomena Lynott stated that Dizzy Lizzy are 'the closest to playing my sons music' A this sentiment has ecohed throughout the years. Dizzy Lizzy do indeed have an amazing sound and resemblance to the classic 70s & 80s rock band. They will take you back in time to relive that magical musical era with a superb blend of classic foot stomping rock anthems and emotive rock ballads
(inc . . The Boys Are Back In Town, Whiskey In the Jar, Emerald, Black Rose, Rosalie, Sarah, Still In Love With You). Many have acknowledged Philomena's statement to be true, Dizzy Lizzy are the closest and most convincing tribute to the real thing.
One of the country’s leading and most dynamic tribute acts, they are the only act to have headlined both, the ‘Vibe for Philo’ in Dublin & ‘Remember Phil & Gary’ event in Holland. Also appearing at many prestigious venues, around Britain, such as the Cavern- Liverpool, Matthew street festival, O2 Academies up & down the country. Plus other large capacity venues including Butlin's.
They have also performed and toured with the original Thin Lizzy guitarist Eric Bell. (Pic) 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’. Released in the year 2000.
Although based in the Midlands, Dizzy Lizzy tour extensively throughout the UK, perform in Europe & have performed as far afield as Los Angeles and Dubai. -
