The classic rock band Thin Lizzy announced the complete line-up of the band that will tour to celebrate their 50th anniversary. The band consists on bassist Troy Sanders (Mastodon), original Thin Lizzy guitarist Scott Gorham (Thin Lizzy, Black Star Riders), vocalist Ricky Warwick (Black Star Riders), guitarist Damon Johnson (Alice Cooper, Black Star Riders) and drummer Scott Travis (Judas Priest).
The band will play on several European festival dates, that includes UK, Spain, Belgium and more.
Scott Gorham talked about having Mastodon’s Troy on the band:
“We are very happy to welcome Troy to the Lizzy family! We met a few years ago at Download festival and he’s a great guy and killer bass player. So very happy he wanted to join us for the shows this summer.”
“Mastodon are a fantastic band,” adds Warwick, “and knowing how much of a Thin Lizzy fan Troy is, he will be an amazing addition to the fold”
“It’s no secret that Thin Lizzy has had a big influence on Mastodon’s music,” Sanders says. “Being asked to join them on stage is a big deal and true honor to me. I am really looking forward to it!”
