Renowned for their pyrotechnics-fuelled recreation of the original Thin Lizzy’s show, the four piece are said to be one of the hardestworking tribute bands in the UK today,

In 2001, they were even honoured by winning the prestigious title of Live Band Of The Year from Guitarist Magazine.

Vocalist and bassist Wayne Ellis has been described “as close as you can possibly get to the late great Philip Lynott himself.”

They have toured and played stages worldwide and the accolades Limehouse Lizzy have received over the years are largely a tribute to founder member Wayne’s determination in building up his band - although he stresses he is not an impressionist.

The show also features a stunning recreation of Lizzy’s iconic mirrored LED-lit backdrop - along with banners showing Lynott’s image and plenty of exciting pyrotechnic explosions.

The four will be breathing new life back into classic tracks such as The Boys are Back in Town, Whiskey In The Jar and many more.

Tickets for this 16 plus show in 53 Degrees’ intimate upstairs club room, are still on sale, priced at £14 plus booking fee.

They are available from the box office on 01772 893000 or online at

Doors open at 7.30pm.
