Black Star Riders, the new band featuring Thin Lizzy members Ricky Warwick, Damon Johnson, Scott Gorham and Marco Mendoza, together with drummer Jimmy DeGrasso (Alice Cooper / Megadeth), have announced their first UK headline tour.

The band are set to take the UK and Eire by storm on their 2013 tour, playing much of the debut album and some Thin Lizzy classics.

This event takes place at O2 Shepherds Bush Empire, which has achieved Silver Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
Black Star Riders are the new band formed by Thin Lizzy alumni Ricky Warwick (vocals), Scott Gorham (guitar), Damon Johnson (guitar) and Marco Mendoza (bass), with new addition Jimmy DeGrasso on drums (Alice Cooper, Megadeth, David Lee Roth, Suicidal Tendencies). The Black Star Riders are the next step in the evolution of the Thin Lizzy story, with a sound that retains that classic feel but is very much its own as well.
Black Star Riders tour dates
Formed around the nucleus of Australians Jon Stevens (Noiseworks/INXS) and David Lowy (Red Phoenix/Mink), the powerful musical collective is completed by a line-up that speaks volumes. They include, Charley Drayton (The X-pensive Winos/The Cult), Richard Fortus (Guns ‘N’ Roses/Thin Lizzy), Darryl Jones (The Rolling Stones) and Dizzy Reed (Guns ‘N’ Roses).
The Dead Daisies sound is created around the tracks written by Stevens & Lowy which is based on the music they both love – classic late ‘70s early ‘80s hard rock, in that soulful Bad Company meets Foreigner via The Faces kind of vibe – big choruses, powerful melodies, and strong hooks.
