The annual ‘Dedication’ Tribute Show in memory of Phil Lynott, of Irish rockers Thin Lizzy, will this year be at The Peterborough Sports and Leisure Club (PSL Club), Lincoln Road, Peterborough on Saturday 4th October at 7pm.

It will be a celebration of the life and music of Lynott who would have been 65 years old this year.

In 2016 it will be 30 years since he sadly passed away but he is still fondly remembered through shows like this one, proudly held annually in Peterborough, which attract a wide audience of varying ages as his legacy lives on.

Having held six of the last 10 shows at The Royal British Legion organisers have moved the show to The PSL Club in part of the city in a bid to attract an even wider audience.

They thanked The Royal British Legion for the last few years and now look forward to working with Johnny and Maggie Burns at The PSL Club.

This show, now in its 11th year, promises to top the previous shows with an even stronger line-up to play in memory of Phil Lynott including Rapture (a female-fronted classic rock covers band), Faster Muttley (rock covers band), The Rocket Dogs (top Peterborough covers band), fresh from a recent headline appearance at this year’s Peterborough Beer Festival and this year’s special guests Lizzy on The Loose who will be playing a full Thin Lizzy set on the night.

Phil’s mother, Philomena Lynott, will be flying in from Dublin to be the very special guest on the night.

There will also be a raffle for a guitar to be signed by Philomena on the night, and various Phil Lynott and Thin Lizzy memorabilia will also be raffled.

The new sponsor for the show this year, David Sole from Mad About Drums has donated some drum goodies for the raffle, and last year’s sponsor, Daral Brennan, has offered to provide an outside banner and a custom designed and printed drum skin which will be “the only one of its kind on the planet!” according to Daral, who will kindly auction it on the night and will also be signed by Philomena.

Advance tickets (priced £10) are available direct from behind the bar at The PSL Club or from Terry Naraine on 07796 250071 or terrynaraine@hotmail.co.uk.

Tickets will also be available on the door on the night of the show from 7pm.

A sold out show is expected again and any interested parties are urged to get their tickets early as they are strictly limited to 250.

All proceeds on the night will go to The Roisin Dubh Trust, a charity set up in memory of Phil Lynott which supports under privileged children, and gives support to mothers who lose their children at an early age.
