One of the world's most successful rock bands, the Irish/English band Thin Lizzy, will bring its fusion of psychedelic rock and traditional Irish folk music to Istanbul on November 11th during the Avea Escape to Music concerts at Maçka Küçükçiftlik Park.

Legendary rock band Thin Lizzy will be giving a concert in Turkey on November 11 at Maçka Küçükçiftlik Park as part of the Avea Escape to Music concerts.

The band is considered one of the world’s most successful rock bands. The group was inspired by artists like Van Morrison, Little Feat and Bob Seager. Phil Lynott, Thin Lizzy’s late de facto leader, composed or cowrote of almost all of the band’s songs, and was the first black Irishman to achieve commercial success in the field of hard rock music. Thin Lizzy has boasted some of the most critically acclaimed guitarists throughout its history, with Brian Downey and Lynott as the rhythm section on the drums and bass guitar.
