Thin Lizzy to release documentary and 1978 concert film package

Thin Lizzy will release the Phil Lynott documentary, “Songs For While I’m Away”, and concert film, “The Boys Are Back In Town Live At The Sydney Opera House October 1978”, in a new package available on June 24.

Directed by Emer Reynolds, “Phil Lynott: Songs For While I'm Away" chronicles the life and music of Phil Lynott, telling the story of how a young black boy from 1950s working-class Dublin became one of the world’s most iconic rock stars.

Told through interviews with Thin Lizzy band members, colleagues, family members, and anecdotes from the man himself, the film outlines the classic hits and fan favorites Lynott created while also detailing his personal life as a father, husband, son, and friend.

Complementing this film is “Thin Lizzy - The Boys Are Back In Town Live At The Sydney Opera House October 1978”. Previously released on VHS, Laserdisc, and DVD, this version of the concert film presents the show in the highest quality that has been made available, with not only cleaned up video and remixed audio from multi tracks, but five additional songs from this set that have never been officially released.

This performance showcases the live lineup of Lynott, guitarists Scott Gorham and Gary Moore, and drummer Mark Nauseef delivering versions of their celebrated anthems, such as “Jailbreak”, “The Boys Are Back In Town”, “Bad Reputation” and “Me And The Boys”.

The documentary and live concert package will be available in multiple formats, including as a 2xDVD+CD and Blu-ray+DVD+CD (with the Phil Lynott documentary on the Blu-ray).

Gorham recently left Black Star Riders to focus his energies on rebuilding Thin Lizzy as fans await further news on the project.
