Thin Lizzy tour 1978

Date Arena City, Country Comments
780216 Music Machine London, UK Greedies. Cancelled

The GREEDY BASTARDS sadly did not appear. The House was packed no wonder when you read the names of the musician. Instead of the GREEDYS came a band called CAFE JAQUES with a guy called CHRIS THOMSON. 2 days later I saw (with my camera) THE HEAVY METAL KIDS. This was the show when GARY HOLTON fell of the high MM Stage to the danceground and on his head fell the monitor-speaker. The MM stage is 2 Meters high !!!!

It is not Lizzy gig, but a charity football tournament including last minute reserves none other than The Dublinaires  .  .  . Bob Geldof and Philip Lynott.
I suspect they were in full support as reserves to assist the Penthouse Pets and the Playboy Bunnies !!!
The event took place on Sunday Nov 5th 1978 and was attended by several major stars including Midge Ure, Stranglers, ELO, Rod Stewart and Elton John.
