A night in honor of PHIL LYNOTT is being organised by Hype Entertainment in Kilkenny, Ireland. The night will be held on August 19 in Paris Texas, High Street, the weekend of the second anniversary of the unveiling of the Phil Lynott statue off Grafton Street in Dublin. The event will feature a number of THIN LIZZY tribute bands with top Thin Lizzy tribute act, THE THIN LIZZY EXPERIENCE, headlining the show. The band will be travelling from Sheffield in the UK to headline a memorial event in Dublin's Radio City on August 18 and have agreed to include Kilkenny on their schedule. The Thin Lizzy Experience formed through the desire of four hardened fans to bring a realistic youthful representation to the music of Thin Lizzy. There are also negotiations with two other Lizzy tribute acts from the UK and Los Angeles to join The Experience on the bill. To add to the atmosphere and to create a real concert vibe, Hype plan to change Paris Texas into a miniature concert stadium with big screens and a sound and lighting rig to complement the huge scale of the original Thin Lizzy.

The Vibe for Phillo event that hit the Marble City last year proved that Kilkenny is full of Thin Lizzy fans and the prestigious event was a result of local die-hard Lizzy fan, Adriano DiRuscio, recommending the city as a venue. Phil Lynott fans were delighted when their hero was honoured in 2005 with a life-size bronze statue standing proud outside Bruxelles on Harry Street in Dublin. Two years on and the weekend is now considered a time of celebration for Thin Lizzy fans all over the world. With a Kilkenny touch this year, organisers hope to make it an annual event that will attract Thin Lizzy fans, young and old, from all over the country
