When The Real Thin Lizzy Played Chicago

"It's been a tough year for Thin Lizzy, having lost guitarist Gary Moore and hitting the 25th anniversary of frontman Phil Lynott's death," Illinois Entertainer wrote in advance of the new lineup's appearance in Chicago on April 1st.

We thought we'd bring you instead audio from the original lineup's 1976 and 1977 appearances. (All 1976 audio is believed to have come from their show at the old Chicago Stadium; the 1977 audio is believed to have come from shows at the Stadium and the Uptown, though they also apparently played the Riv in at least one if not both of those years and the Aragon in 1976.)

1. Angel From The Coast, 1976.


2. Jailbreak, 1976.


3. Blues Boy, 1976


4. Suicide, 1976.


5. The Rocker, 1976.


6. Rosalie, 1976.


7. Emerald, 1976.


8. Southbound, 1977 (Uptown).


9. Cowboy Song, 1977 (Chicago Stadium).


Comments welcome.


1. From Paul Clark:

I was at the Thin Lizzy concert at the Uptown in 1977. But I didn't go there to see them, I went to see the opening act - Graham Parker and the Rumour - who were fantastic. In fact, they were so good, we left after they played.

I also remember that as Parker's band went into its first encore, the smoke machine started, completely obscuring the band. We assumed it was because the headliners did like all the love their opening act was getting.
