Brian Downey, known to millions of rock fans as the original drummer of Thin Lizzy, will perform a rare concert at Nells Jazz & Blues in London on Friday 24th November with his new band Brian Downey’s ALIVE AND DANGEROUS, who will perform a 40th anniversary concert of one of the greatest live rock and roll albums of all time  Thin Lizzy’s “Live and Dangerous”. Tickets go on sale from 12 noon on Friday 18th August from www.seetickets.com and the 24 Hour Box Office 0871 220 0260.

To mark this rare, one-off London show, Downey’s band features Brian Grace (best known as the guitarist for the Commitments’ Andrew Strong), and former Low Rider members Matt Wilson (lead vocals, bass) and Phil Edgar (lead guitar).

2018 celebrates 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.

Says Brian, “After the Thin Lizzy reunion shows finished in 2013, I was asked to join, what turned out to be Black Star Riders, but it just didn’t feel right for me.  In January 2016, following an appearance at the Vibe For Philo in Dublin, I approached Brian Grace and that’s when we discussed getting a band together. After a few rehearsals, Brian suggested that we rehearse with Matt Wilson (lead vocals, bass) and Phil Edgar (guitar), both of whom had been in a band called The Low Riders (their name was taken from a lyric from the Thin Lizzy song Johnny The Fox).”

“In January 2017, we jammed together at the Vibe For Philo, and it went so well, that we decided to form Brian Downey’s ALIVE AND DANGEROUS and make it a full time proposition.”
