Toronto's sixth annual "Thin Lizzy - A Celebration: The Music of Phil Lynott" will be held on Saturday, July 21, 2007 at Jeff Healey's Roadhouse (56 Blue Jays Way) in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
For the sixth year in a row, some of the finest musicians on the Canadian indie are coming together to celebrate and pay tribute to a true warrior poet, Philip Lynott. Since his untimely death in 1986, THIN LIZZY's Phil Lynott has left a musical legacy that continues to influence and inspire musicians around the globe. Even the legendary Bob Dylan has been recently quoted singing LIZZY's praises. Over the years, Lynott's songs have been covered by an array of such diverse performers as HENRY ROLLINS, THE CORRS, SMASHING PUMPKINS, RANDY BACHMAN, HUEY LEWIS, METALLICA, THE CURE and Canada's own EMM GRYNER.
For the first four years, the proceeds from the event went to the Roisin Dubh Trust to help defray the enormous cost of erecting a statue of Phil Lynott in the heart of Dublin. 19 years after his untimely passing, this memorial in bronze was finally unveiled to a crowd of 6000 fans, on August 19, 2005.
With the statue in place, subsequent show's proceeds have gone to such worthy causes as the Canadian Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CCFF) and the TOMA Foundation for Burned Children.
The show starts at 9:00 p.m. sharp and will feature some of the finest acts on the Toronto indie scene, including the following:
Tickets are on sale June 1 and are only $15 in advance $20 at the door.
