Eric Bell 50th Anniversary Tour

Civic Theatre, Monday 28th January 2019

In 1969 Eric Bell walked into a bar in Dublin, ordered a pint and settled down to watch a band play. Two of the members of that band were Brian Downey and Phil Lynott. He was knocked out by what he saw and heard and asked them to form a band with him. Both duly obliged and within weeks Thin Lizzy was born. The three of them worked very hard both in the studio and on the road and were eventually rewarded with a hit single, the anthemic – Whiskey in the Jar – which catapulted them into worldwide recognition.

Eric eventually decided to forge a solo career, playing in his favourite 3-piece format and has over the years recorded a host of albums both live and studio and most recently has recorded two highly acclaimed albums, Exile and Standing at a Bus Stop.
