Thin Lizzy tribute concert livestream announced

Damon Johnson will lead “A Tribute To Thin Lizzy” livestreamed show on Friday, September 25.

A current touring member of the legendary Irish outfit, Johnson will be seen performing with his band The Get Ready in his hometown of Nashville and will feature guitarist Richie Faulkner of Judas Priest.

The event will present classic Thin Lizzy tunes alongside the live debut of the title track to Johnson’s forthcoming album, “Battle Lessons”, ahead of its release later this year.

“I’m beyond thrilled to have my old friend Richie Faulkner join us on guitar,” says Johnson, “as we pay tribute to Phil Lynott and Thin Lizzy: a band that has meant so much to all of us for so long. Plus we’re going to perform our new single for the first time anywhere.”

“Damon is a good friend of mine and Thin Lizzy is part of my DNA as a guitar player,”
adds Faulkner, “so it was an honor to be asked to rock some Lizzy classics with him and The Get Ready.”

Johnson joined the Thin Lizzy touring lineup in 2011; the band continues to perform occasionally under the brand even after it transitioned to Black Star Riders in 2012 and went on to release three studio albums before Johnson exited in 2018 ... and 2019’s “Another State Of Grace.”

“A Tribute To Thin Lizzy” will be streamed live on September 25 at 7 p.m. Central; tickets are available here.

Thin Lizzy will release a career-spanning box set entitled “Rock Legends” on October 23; the 6CD/1DVD package delivers 99 tracks – including 74 previously-unreleased tunes – from the band.
