Can I get ‘ah hell yes’? Legendary rock band, Guns N’ Roses have just announced fellow legends Thin Lizzy as special guests for the latter’s Dublin O2 show on May 17th. The bands won’t be strangers on the night as Gun’s guitarist, Richard Fortus, toured with Lizzy last summer including the band’s support slot at Def Leppard and Alice Cooper’s O2 arena show last June.

The current Lizzy line-up includes old names Scott Gorham, Brian Downey and Darren Wharton as well as new comers Rick Warwich (The Almighty), Damon Johnson (Alice Cooper / Sammy Hagar) and Marco Mendoza (the most awesome name in the band). Anyone that caught their show last year will pounce at the chance of catching them in May.

Tickets for the show are on sale now from €64.50 and available from Ticketmaster outlets nationwide. Don’t miss your chance to enjoy two incredible bands on one stage this year.
