  MARK TAYLOR'S BIG CITY NIGHTS

THIN LIZZY: UNDER THE BRIDGE, LONDON

The Thin Lizzy boys were back in town to play two intimate shows at the rather snazzy Under The Bridge venue situated under the terraces of Chelsea's Stamford Bridge football ground as part of the London Olympics Irish Village.

The venue, which cost Mr Abramovich a reportedly cool £8 million to refurbish, is under the terraces where the original The Shed End once stood and Rainbow's Ritchie Blackmore named a song after on the 'Long Live Rock 'N Roll' album.

The intimate venue's PA was full of clarity and crystal clear sound and the smiles on the band's faces were just as big as those lucky enough to have a ticket.

I was lucky enough to be there on both nights and was so glad I was as Thin Lizzy re-Irish-jigged their set list around for the second night to a totally different running order with the addition of 'Angel Of Death' thrown in from the underrated 'Renegade' album and was the newest song in the set.

Irish themed numbers like 'Emerald' and 'Whiskey In The Jar' were roof raisers. Belfast born 'new' singer Ricky Warwick has adapted his voice immensely to a more subtle and emotive passion since joining Lizzy, shining on 'Dancing In The Moonlight'.



Darren Wharton shares the vocals for the epic ballad 'Still In Love With You', which features exquisite solos from Scott Gorham and Damon Johnson. Drummer Brian Downey is welcomed back like a long lost friend and his effortless style is also part of the signature sound of Thin Lizzy.

During 'Cowboy Song' the faithful was ensured that both Phil Lynott and Gary Moore were still riding with us by Warwick which broke into a air guitar nirvana of 'The Boys Are Back In Town'.



These were two magical evenings seeing Thin Lizzy up close and personal, a memory I shall cherish for ever.

Two very hot nights, the second of which was also the perfect formula for one Eddie Jordan who was in top gear along with Sex Pistols' Paul Cook who were in amongst the Lizzy fanatics caught in the spotlight. It was so God damn hot!
