    The Gig Cartel & Warehouse23 presents Black Star Riders and special guests The Howling Tides


    Though the history books will record that BLACK STAR RIDERS first came together in late 2012, the band’s spiritual roots stretch back four decades, to the moment, in the summer of 1974, when a 23 year old Scott Gorham walked into The Iroquo Restaurant in Tavistock Hill, North London, plugged a cheap Les Paul copy into a humming valve amplifier and first ran through ‘The Rocker’ with THIN LIZZY’s Phil Lynott and Brian Downey. Together with fiery Scotsman, and fellow guitar prodigy, Brian Robertson, Gorham re-energised the Irish rockers, helping to transform LIZZY into one of the most exciting, brilliant and influential bands of their generation. The Californian guitarist was an integral part of the band through to their break-up in 1983, and is recognised of one of the architects of a tough but melodic twin guitar sound which changed the face of hard rock.


    In 2012, recordings potentially earmarked for a first THIN LIZZY album since 1983’s »Thunder« and »Lightning«, were collated instead under the BLACK STAR RIDERS banner, and with the release of »All Hell Breaks Loose« in May 2013, the new-look band hit the road running.
