Thinner Lizzy from Jem M, 02/02/11
Cosy venue at IndigO2, just the right size for Lizzy nowadays. Great to see some of the original band after 30 years (Renegade tour) though living on past reputation somewhat, no new songs but belted out the classics well enough. Probably unfair to compare with the past, can never be the same without Phil Lynott, there are some frontmen who just can not be replaced. Scott Gorham (or was it Richard Branson?) looked a bit reticent at times, shy almost! (no, Richard Branson wouldnt be shy and retiring) to really let himself go, great to see Brian Downey on drums. The band seemed a bit cobbled together but fairly tight. Two solid enough support bands in The Union and erm? Overall an enjoyable night and looking forward to seeing them again at Download.
