Huge Phil Lynott tribute gig - and the best nights out in Peterborough this week

Dedication at the Parkway Club, Maskew Avenue on Saturday.
Dedication at the Parkway Club, Maskew Avenue on Saturday.

Phil Lynott, of Irish rock legends Thin Lizzy would have been 70 this year and for the 16th year running Peterborough will be remembering and celebrating the man and the music on Saturday (October 5) at The Parkway Club, Maskew Avenue.

Dedication 16 is also dedicated to the memory also of Phil’s mother, Philomena Lynott, who attended 10 of the 15 previous shows in Peterborough and who sadly passed away due to cancer this year aged 88.

The show, which started in 2003 as a one-off - features five bands this year, possibly the strongest ever line up.

Headliners will be Black Rose (Society) from Northampton, who wrote themselves into Dedication folklore 13 years ago, when they played the whole of the last Thin Lizzy studio album from 1983 ‘Thunder and Lightning’ in its entirety plus a greatest hits set, and promise again something really special by playing a full 75 minute set on Saturday.

Special guests are ‘Third Stone From The Sun, Peterborough’s own Thin Lizzy tribute band Lizzy On The Loose, who have been the backbone of countless Dedication shows over the years; Peterborough’s newest Thin Lizzy, Gary Moore and Black Star Riders tribute band Star Lizzy, making theirDedication debut; The Smarties from Northamptonshire who will be playing a set of classic rock covers including Thin Lizzy and Gary Moore, featuring Lewis Hubbard on lead guitar.

All proceeds from the show will go again to Roisin Dubh Trust, which includes support to under privileged children in Ireland and helps support mothers that have lost their children at an early age.

Tickets priced £10 are available in advance from Terry Naraine on (07796) 250071, or direct from The Parkway Club or on the door on the night of the show.
