73 Viking Club Seahouses, UK Thanks to Sandra Totterdell
Many years ago probably in early 70s I saw Thin Lizzy at the Viking club at Seahouses Northumberland. I can't see the gig listed on your site - could you let me know the date?
I recall Whiskey in Jar was just becoming a hit and a group of us met the band and they were lovely gents .
Be great to pin down the date or year.
