Organisers Coast Town Events and Arran Paul will round off the night with an after party fronted by a specialist rock DJ going through until 2am.

Limehouse Lizzy are hailed as ‘the best in classic rock from the closest thing to the original Thin Lizzy’, with frontman Wayne Ellis described as ‘an uncanny ringer for Phil Lynott’.

A spokesman said: “Limehouse Lizzy continue to keep the spirit of Celtic rock icon Philip Lynott and his band Thin Lizzy alive, well and dominating stages worldwide.

“The band have also added a tribute into their show to ex-Thin Lizzy guitarist and world-renowned solo artist Gary Moore. Delivering the classic hits of The Boys Are Back In Town, Jailbreak, Rosalie, Whiskey In The Jar and many more - the boys are well and truly back.

“Support is provided the UK’s premier Status Quo tribute band Quo-Incidence, delivering the unmistakable heads down, no nonsense boogie rock ‘n’ roll all the way from Somerset to the seaside of Blackpool.

“There’ll be no ‘Holding You Back’ as they get you ‘Rockin’ All Over The World’.

“Opening the night and guaranteed to get the party started we have local favourites Rupert Fabulous, a band of legend, awe and splendour.

“This promises to be one hell of a gig to prove that Blackpool Rocks.”
