Throughout the ’70s, The Tomorrow Club/Agora venue was able to showcase many bands who were on their way to bigger things. By the time the ’80s hit, there were some bands being booked at the venue who were going on to lesser things. Such is the case of Thin Lizzy‘s visit to the Agora Theater on November 18, 1980.
In 1977, Thin Lizzy was a big enough name to be opening a show for Queen at the Richfield Coliseum. In fall of 1980, the band was supporting the Chinatown album which failed to crack the Billboard Top 100. Band leader Phil Lynott was busy swapping new members in and out at that point in the final stage of the band’s career. This would be the last U.S. tour for the original Thin Lizzy. Drugs would claim the life of Lynott in 1986.
