The original Thin Lizzy skinsman Brian Downey plans to tour with his twin-guitar lineup, presenting the material on the renowned Live & Dangerous double-album. So those who remember the original tour OR were too young to attend OR​ were not even born back then all have a chance to here these songs as they should be absorbed and enjoyed – live on stage:

Due to popular demand Brian Downey’s Alive And Dangerous will tour the UK tour in September and October to perform the 40th Anniversary of Thin Lizzy’s iconic live album “Live and Dangerous” in its entirety! The album is hailed to be on the greatest live albums of all time.

Says Brian, “We will be celebrating the 40th Anniversary of Live and Dangerous by performing the album in its entirety when we tour it in the UK in September and October. Thin Lizzy fans have been asking us when we will embark on a UK tour. The time has finally arrived.”

Brian Downey’s Alive And Dangerous features Brian Grace (best known as the guitarist for the Commitments’ Andrew Strong), plus former Low Rider band members Matt Wilson (lead vocals, bass), and Phil Edgar (lead guitar).

2018 will mark the 40th Anniversary of Thin Lizzy’s Live and Dangerous album. Although the album was recorded live in 1977 at London’s Hammersmith Apollo and Toronto’s Seneca College, it wasn’t officially released until a year later in 1978.
