Trucker Diablo part ways with Guitarist

Posted in Music, News with tags , on February 14, 2014 by Tickets There

Trucker-Diablo-Band-Pic-FightSad news over the past couple of weeks for Trucker Diablo fans. The big truck have announced Simon Haddock has left the band. Simon is leaving for personal reasons and they all remain friends which is refreshing, but unfortunate news. The original line-up played their last show together at the Diamond Rock club last weekend (Feb 8th) and Trucker are now on the hunt for Simon’s replacement.

So think you have what it takes? Trucker are looking and it could be you (and you might have found out here and when Trucker are massively famous you’ll be like, Oh forget you Rolling Stone – the TT gets our attention first. ‘Hey TT’, you’ll say. ‘Come on tour with us while we support Motorhead‘. I’d be all cool at first, but I’d find a way to blow it sooner or later. Anyway – THEY WANT YOU!

Simon, very sad to hear you’re going but your reasons are obviously very understandable. I’ve enjoyed the music you made with the guys and wish you the very best for the future. Hopefully we’ll see you back with a guitar soon.

Trucker Diablo release official ‘DRIVE’ video

Posted in Gig Review, Music, News with tags , , , , , on March 28, 2013 by Tickets There

The big truck just keeps on rolling! Trucker Diablo have just released the official video for ‘Drive’, the first single from their sophomore album, Songs of Iron, which is due for release in May. If you’re looking for a solid slice of fun loving, sing along rock then look no further than this little anthem. There’s also more depth than I was expecting from the album’s first single. Unlike ‘Drink Beer, Destroy’, ‘Drive’ offers a solace message for dealing with heartbreak; without losing any of the bands knack for catchiness.

Remember, they’re supporting Kopek @ The Workman’s Club on Saturday, April 6th. Don’t miss this rare chance to catch one of this Island’s best rock bands in Dublin.

Thin Lizzy Line-up Announce Hiatus and Name Change for New Album

Posted in Gig Listing, Music, News with tags , , , , , , , , , , on October 31, 2012 by Tickets There

We were slow for this news, but it must be said. The current line-up of Thin Lizzy have announced they will cease touring under the Lizzy name at the end of this year. Once the band complete their European tour in December, they will officially drop the Thin Lizzy name and announce a new one next year. The band have recently been discussing a new Lizzy album but have now decided to release it with a fresh start.

Despite the name drop, frontman Ricky Warwick did state that this does not necessarily mean the end of Thin Lizzy outright and the line-up may tour as Lizzy again in the future. For now the band want to focus on their new record that they feel is strong enough to win over Lizzy fans and make former singer and all round Irish legend – Phil Lynott, proud.

Details will follow on Tickets There when the band announce further plans. In the meantime, catch Thin Lizzy when they play the last two Irish dates for a while,

Wed/Dec-12 Belfast, N.I. The Limelight (with Trucker Diablo supporting in Belfast)

Thu/Dec-13 Dublin, Ireland Olympia Theatre
